A generous, one-of-a-kind cutting and shaping board: this 1.5" thick, 11" x 18" end-grain board is made of three types of wood: poplar, mahogany, and walnut.
Each slab is a hand-crafted beauty, complete with signature imperfections that add to its rare resilience.
Poplar – The “poplar” name comes from Ancient Rome, as the trees were routinely planted in public spaces or near people; the “populus.” Poplar is a relatively light-weight hardwood with a tight grain structure and beautiful light color. It is often slightly greenish/yellowish in tone, and some specimens have gorgeous streaks of purple throughout.
Mahogany – Mahogany is a much sought-after wood, based on its hardness, resilience, and beauty. It is commonly regarded as the world's leading wood for fine-quality furniture, cabinetry, sculpture, carving, interior trim, and other applications. Mahogany is typically red, pink, or salmon-colored when first cut. The hues deepen as the wood matures, taking on a rich red or brown-red cast.
Walnut – Black walnut wood is dark, hard, dense, and tight-grained. It is prized by woodworkers for its strength, grain, and color. It polishes to a very smooth finish, and the color ranges from creamy white in the sapwood to a dark chocolate in the heartwood. Over the years, natural walnut wood develops a lustrous patina.
To maintain the cutting board, season it every few weeks by wiping it with the provided mineral oil and let the oil soak in overnight, wiping up any excess oil after it has dried. Be sure to clean your board after each use with a damp cloth and mild detergent or rub the surface thoroughly with fine salt and a lemon. Hand wash only with cold water. Do not place it in the dishwasher.
