I, Chris Brooks personally seek out specific natural character in the wood to create each unique cutting board. By combining a wide variety of woods and carefully creating the boards, each piece becomes a one-of-a-kind work of art. The way each board is constructed makes them extremely durable. When we create our cutting boards we make each of them with care, by hand, using no computerized machinery. Each piece of wood is carefully selected and glued with a waterproof, FDA approved adhesive. No dyes or stains are added to the woods; nature has its own way of showing off its beauty! Chris hand routes all the juice grooves. Then sands each board multiple times producing a very smooth and flat surface. Next we apply multiple coats of a two-step mixture that consist of 100% organic Tung Oil and Mineral Oil. All materials and hardware are certified food safe.
