Product Description

The All Natural Series ECO-Feather is the latest in our all natural (no glue) constructed, solid wooden cutting boards.

The Eco-feather is a light duty cutting board shares many of the attributes of our All Natural Simplicity Series medium boards, minus the heafty weight (for a heavy duty more durable main kitchen board see our All Natural Simplicity Line)

Made as a great companion board to our larger more durable Simplicity series, these are for someone who does light cutting and prep work and moves their board frequently while cooking smaller meals.

This cutting board measures 8 inches deep x 13" inches (Sizes vary up to 1/2" +/- in length or width) wide x only 3/4 inches (thickness varies up to 1/8") thick and is perfect for preparing normal to medum sized meals.

 

Eco Feather advantes vs our All Natural "Simplicity" Series

Half the weight of our medium all natural simplicity series! About 2.5 pounds!

Easy to carry, easy to wash, easy to store!

Uses less shipping materials!

Even more Eco friendly by using less material to manufacture while retaining the beautiful cutting surface loved about our all natural series boards!

Has the same great cutting surface for your knives as our All Natural Simplicity Series in a smaller package! Same cutting durable surface (though it is smaller)

Has the same glue free, all natural, single piece of North American Hard Maple, Canadian made construction. 

The perfect easy to handle cutting board for normal light duty daily cooking at an affordable price with affordable shipping. 

Smaller cutting surface than our all natural "simplicity" series boards which allows one handed lifting and easy washing

Longevity: obviously our thicker, heavier all natural "simplicity" series of boards will be more robust and will have a higher resistance over time to wood movement, cracking, etc. Thicker = tougher, however for smaller jobs and quickly cutting things these are perfect! 

This is the medium size version of our ECO-Feather line of cutting boards perfect for all of your light duty cutting needs. (Sizes can vary slightly +-1/4"-1/2" as each of these are custom made from one piece of wood) 

These boards are re-enforced with two high grade stainless steel rods in the middle of the board to help stabilize the wood, reducing the chance of wood movement (warping).

Our Eco-Feather cutting boards are hand made with care in Canada using one solid piece of Canadian Hard Maple (no glue) and other all natural, and completely non-toxic materials. 

Our cutting boards have two finish coats of our own all natural Certified Organic Walnut Oil, Certified Organic Flax Oil or Certified organic coconut oil, and to increase durability and water resistance you can choose our Certified Organic Local Canadian Beeswax and Certified Organic Carnauba Wax to add to the oil finish on your board!

Flax Seed oil and Walnut oil are drying oils and resists going rancid so they are perfect all natural and organic oils for all wooden objects in your home.

For those who do not want to use Flax seed or walnut oil we also offer our Certified Organic Coconut Oil. 

 (Coconuts are NOT part of the tree nut family their name is a misnomer). Coconuts resist rancidity also, as well as having antibacterial and anti fungal properties.That being said, we are definitely NOT a nut free facility and your board will have had contact with Walnut wood and oil as we make Walnut boards as well.  

Hard Maple is one of the hardest, and most durable woods, and can withstand heavy use in a kitchen. ALL professional grade butcher block and cutting boards are made of Hard Maple. It is a closed grained hardwood (unlike oak, etc) that doesn't absorb bacteria easily, and with antibacterial properties on top of that it makes it the most preferred wood for cutting boards and wooden utensils. 

The completely non-slip feet on this cutting board are made of hand cut all natural gum rubber, yes, natural rubber from a tree, NOT PVC or synthetic rubber, and they are affixed to the board with high grade stainless steel screws that will NEVER rust.

 

Our All Natural Series cutting boards are:

 

-100% Canadian made! 

-100% Canadian Hard Maple sourced within 100 miles of our facility in Ontario Canada.

-Absolutely NO Glues or adhesives, made from a solid piece of Canadian Hard Maple

-Absolutely NO Fungicides, herbicides, or pesticides used during manufacturing (NO antisap stain coatings)

-Absolutely NO petroleum or synthetic finishes, only truly organic, natural nature made finishes.

-A tree is planted for every Urthware board sold to help offset our footprint.

PLEASE READ/NOTE:

 

*NOTE: We are not a Tree nut/Nut free facilty, as we make walnut cutting boards as well

*All cutting boards (regardless of finish chosen) use organic Carnauba wax and Flax seed oil to fill imperfections as well as to water seal the feet and re-enforcing bars.

 



Imperfections:

This cutting board is made of one solid piece of face grain Canadian hard Maple. It contains NO GLUES or toxic adhesives of any sort and is completely natural. Remember, that because it is made with one piece of hard wood there are always some completely natural discolorations and imperfections like mineral staining, spalting, knots, etc. There may be darker and lighter areas as well. As we do not fill holes with epoxies or other toxic substances, we DO NOT sell cutting boards with holes, grooves, or any significant defects in the top of your board that could harbor bacteria, there can be some in the bottom or sides as it is not a cutting surface.

Wood movement:

For us to keep these cutting boards glue free and organic, we make them from one piece of wood, note that ALL wooden cutting boards, (and really anything made of wood) will display some movement (warping) from moisture, it can even be from weather change, and boards made from one piece of wood are, in general, more prone to warp than "glued up" edge grain cutting boards. It this happens we can not consider this a defect, we can do nothing about this as wood is a natural material that can and will move. You can usually avoid any excessive movement by keeping your board dry and well oiled.

Note on maintenance: We do recommend that you purchase one of our organic oil finishes at the same time you purchase your cutting board as you will need to oil your cutting board to maintain it, and it will save you significant shipping costs then purchasing the oil finish at a later time, on its own.  If you would like to use your own organic finishing oil, you may absolutely do so!  However, remember that our finish also contains 100% organic waxes which increase the longevity of your board. So if you are using your own oils it is highly recommended that you also add organic waxes to your finish!

    I have a small family, and this is my board for cutting up raw meat...1 or 2 chicken breasts, etc. Just the right size and shape, and nice and light to carry to the stir-fry pan. Very high quality. I LOVE my Urthware boards! Each one feels great under the knife, plastic begone! I'm proud and pleased to purchase this from a Canadian craftsman.
