Your new wooden chopping board, carving board, cheese board or bread board will provide many years of service but does require some care. Rather like a quality pair of leather shoes, the natural materials need a little love and attention!
Before it left our workshop your board was thoroughly treated with an anti-bacterial oil. Remember to oil your wooden chopping board according to the instructions provided. Further information can be found here.
It is vitally important that the wood used in the construction of your board, whether it be for chopping, carving, cheese or bread, is oiled on a regular basis. Oiling the board will inhibit the ingress of mositure that the board can take from its surroundings and from any items placed on it. The oil also reduces the risk of anything placed on the board reacting with the tannic acid that occurs naturally in the timber, which could result in dark stains forming in the wood.
