Red Oak and Maple Butcher Block
Handcrafted with the most breathtaking solid Oak and Maple with oak splines running down the length, it is a beautiful addition to your kitchen decor both in a contemporary or more rustic kitchen. This board is unique among other cutting boards and chopping blocks because we have taken great care to add red oak splines into each and every joint, making this beautiful board stronger and more durable than traditional boards. The large juice groove combined with our signature finger grooves makes this the perfectboard for prepping large meals or carving a Christmas turkey!
The process of making these boards is long and complex, with many hours of work going into each one. The board is first selected from slabs of wood which have to be kiln dried and then seasoned so that the wood can stabilize. Once a piece is selected, any cracks or gaps are filled with epoxy or resin to seal the wood and prevent food from getting into any crevasses. At this point the board is hand planed and sanded to a smooth finish. A food safe oil/beeswax topcoat rubbed and buffed to a soft sheen. Just wipe with a damp cloth after use and dry, do not soak in water or use dishwasher to clean.
