We glue up WIDE STRIPS of wood not small offcuts like others use. Why? because this makes us use less glue and makes a beautiful durable, high quality board. We ONLY USE FDA APPROVED FOR INDIRECT FOOD CONTACT waterproof glue (please try contacting the foreign company that your current cutting board may be made by and ask them if they use formaldehyde or other toxic glues, we bet you won't like what you hear). This glue contains NO Formaldehyde or Phthalates.
Our cutting boards have two finish coats of our own all natural Organic Walnut oil & Canadian 100% Beeswax finish or our Organic Coconut & Canadian 100% Beeswax finish. NOT MINERAL OIL FINISH like other cutting boards and wooden kitchen products, as mineral oil is a petroleum based product and the Beeswax we use contains NO Paraffin wax (again a petroleum based product) or fillers of any sort and is pure Beeswax.
Walnut oil is absorbed deeply giving a rich durable finish because it is a drying oil (it polymerizes) leaving a hard protective coating and it resists going rancid so is the perfect all natural organic oil for all wooden objects in your home.
We highly recommend Walnut oil as it is more protective and is absorbed deeper into the wood, however coconut oil can be used as an alternative if for some reason you would not like Walnut oil on your cutting board.
For those who may have a slight tree nut allergy or do not want to use Walnut oil we also offer our Coconut Oil/Beeswax finish (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. Note: For those with walnut allergies, we are not a nut free environment and your board will come into contact with walnut oils and wood.
Note: Care must be taken with wooden boards and wood movement can occur (warping) in all wooden cutting boards as they are exposed to water and a tough life. There can be some normal discolourations, spalting, knots, etc in your board, these are natural, and normal. Unlike others we do not sell cutting boards with cracks or large porous knots in the cutting surface of your board because we do not use toxic wood fillers (Ever!), but you will see normal imperfections.
