For years we have been making cutting boards for family and friends as Christmas gifts and also as donations to local charities for auction items to help raise money.
Our American Flag cutting board is tremendously popular as a specialty gift as well as a favorite item for our charity auctions! Because of their popularity and the constant requests from our customers we have decided to make them part of our standard product line.
In the process of making our cabinet doors and countertops we have always had a certain amount of "throw away" material. After some trial and error in the shop we have standardized our operations to allow us to use material that normally would've been thrown out to make some unique and beautiful cutting boards! These boards are high quality and reasonably priced and a great way to add some character and warmth to your kitchen
Construction Technique & Board Specifications
Your cutting board will be made in an edge grain or end grain construction technique which is basically a butcher block style. These construction techniques are a bit more durable and hold up better to being cut directly on. The individual strips of lumber in your cutting board will range in width from 13/16" - 1 1/4" wide and your board will be approximately 1" thick. Our End grain boards are always 3" thick. Your board is built using premium waterproof glues and clamps. We do not use quick drying glue or an electronic heating process to speed up the glue hardening process. With the exception of utilizing biscuit joinery our cutting boards are built the same way as our solid wood counter tops.
Each board comes to you with a 180 grit finish as well as a hand rubbed mineral oil finish. We recommend finishing your board with several more coats of mineral oil before use and to reapply this finish every three to four weeks. Your cutting board should be cleaned by washing with soap and water and air dried or tower dried, NEVER should it be placed in a dishwasher! Cutting board oil can be purchased at any Home Depot, Lowes or similar stores.
Types of Wood Available
As with our counter tops you can purchase your cutting board in any of the below wood species:
- Oak (red or white)
