Product Overview

 

Our new beeswax only finish washes off your cutting surfaces when you receive it and give it a scrub, which allows you to personalize your cutting board with whatever food safe finish you want, or already use, from whatever company or manufacturer who's finishes you already trust! You use your own finish! Research some good natural finishes so you can have the ready for when you receive your boards!

This is the Large size version of our All Natural Simplicity Series Line of cutting boards, perfect for all of your heavy duty cutting or chopping needs. It is approximately  9" Deep x 18" Wide x 1.25" thick. (Sizes can vary slightly +-1/4"-3/8" as each of these are custom made from one piece of wood) This is the perfect sized board for someone who cooks large meals but does not want a cutting board that is too big and takes up too much counter space or storage space.


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).

It is 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. 

 

 

All of our products are finished in a 100% Organic Canadian and USA beeswax from Canadian and US apiaries. 

How it works!  We only put Organic beeswax on your cutting board, that's it!  This allows you to choose the oil or oil and wax finish you'd like to use when it arrives at your home!

 

What do you do when you get it? Couldn't be simpler.

1. Use the board (or go straight to step 2)

2. Give the whole board a good hand wash with a little soap and a cloth and rinse with warm water. 

3. Wipe it dry with a towel,  then let it fully air dry

4. Apply a few coats of your own finish from whatever company you want to buy from (Yes, even just a straight oil, or an oil/wax for some added protection, and let each coat absorb for a bit (or follow the manufacturers directions for that finish)

5. That's it. You're done. Use it normally. And re-oil/wax as needed

 

We've been asked so many times to use a host of different finishes.  Many want to make their own, or they've used a specific finish for years.  Some just wipe them down with their preferred oil, some use an oil/wax (board butter)

Our new light coat of beeswax allows you to have your cutting board your way!  Only beeswax, that's all that on top of a natural glue free piece of Canadian hard maple!

 Allergy alert* We currently use Coconut oils in our facility as well as the following: Hard Maple wood, gum tree rubber (natural latex), carnauba wax, stainless steel (304), Beeswax. Any and all of these materials may be in or contact your cutting board.

 

 

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 one piece 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.

Imperfections:

This cutting board is made of one solid piece of face grain Canadian hard Maple (sugar 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. Knots and holes are filled with All Natural Canadian Organic beeswax.

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:   If you would like to use your own organic finishing oil, that is absolutely up to you!  Maintaining any wooden cutting board with oil or oil/wax is a must to help prevent staining, water absorption, and warping and cracking.

    Great cutting board!

    Posted by Leah on 22nd Jun 2020

    We are so happy with this cutting board. It is so well made and sturdy. The feet on the bottom are very handy so the board doesnt slip all over the countertops. There is a little maintenance required but Urthware makes this very clear on their website and when you purchase. Added bonus- customer service is wonderful!

    Absolutely perfect!

    Posted by Lydia Murphy on 11th Sep 2018

    This board is exactly what we wanted. It's sturdy, well-made, and we were sent very thorough instructions on how to best care for it. We ordered the Flax Oil, as well, to keep it protected and it has worked great. Thank you so much for making a sustainable, non-toxic cutting board that will last for a long time!

    Finally, a safe cutting board option!

    Posted by Christy on 29th Dec 2015

    Heard about Urthware products through a healthy/natural living blog and decided to try a few of their cutting boards. It is a relief to be using a cutting board for my family that doesn't contain toxic glues or other chemicals. Not to mention the boards are beautiful, practical, and easy to care for. Thanks Urthware!

    Truly a work of art!

    Posted by jka on 25th Aug 2015

    All I can say is "WOW!" I work in the art profession, and have great interest in wood creations. When I received this cutting board two days ago, I almost refused to touch a knife to its beautiful surface! I finally had to do a bit of chopping action tonight, and used my new (expensive) knife set on this board. Again, "WOW!" My former bamboo cutting board had little "give" with even the lightest of knife strokes. This Urthware board didn't push back on my knife, and helped me to get the precise finishing-edge to the tomatoes I cut. It's a true work of art, but a functional one at that. Thank you, Urthware! I'll never cut on anything else again!

    Safe and gorgeous

    Posted by Adam on 26th Apr 2015

    The second I opened the package I knew that whoever made these boards truly cared about not only what they do, but how they do it. After looking at the beautifully crafted board it dawned on me that I do not think I have seen a board that wasn't just a bunch of glued pieces until now. I loved the instructions for how to care for the board as well, so I know how someone who loves and wants to prolong the life of their boards would do it without having to look it up. An the amount of beeswax and walnut oil that was recommended was spot on so I never waste any or under oil my board. Can't say enough about the quality of these and how much I appreciate the small footprint approach. Obviously them being non-toxic was the main draw but they exceeded my expectations.
