I am always learning new things as I build this business and one thing that I just learned is that not everyone knows how to properly care for their cutting board. If you purchased a cutting board from me, it's most likely made from walnut and has some type of exotic wood in it. You paid a lot for your cutting board and you want it to last for years to come, so here are a few tips to keep your board from getting ugly and possibly falling apart. The most important thing is to not drop your board on a really hard surface. That one is pretty self explanatory. I use Titebond III wood glue to hold the board together. This glue is waterproof and is the only proper glue that should be used when making a board. Another very important thing never to do is let your board soak in water. You can rinse it off under running water, but never let it sit in a sink full of standing water. Doing that too many times will wear the finish off of the board and eventually warp the board which will cause it to break. Never scrub the board with a brillo pad or metal object. You will rub the finish right off and it will wear down on your board. After you use your board for a while it might start to look dull. When you purchase a cutting board from me you will get a 3 oz tin of a cutting board oil. Rub some of that on to add a new coat of finish to help protect your board. The proper way to clean your board is to wipe it down with a damp rag and let it air dry. Please don't put the board in a dishwasher. Treat your cutting board right and it will last a very long time.
