The hardwood that I most commonly use for my boards are walnut, maple, oak, hickory and cherry. These are domestic woods. I’m the type of artist who typically doesn’t repeat the same design. With every new board I create I try to challenge myself to come up with a new design. This creative process keeps the imagination flowing and inspiring. As an artist I’m searching for a niche in this industry. A style that sets me aside from all the rest. I may have found the style with the “Gradient boards.” The subtle change of color from dark to light. There are many designs I can come up with while maintaining the gradient effect. It’s a style that I haven’t seen out there and makes these boards stand out from the rest. I enjoy knowing that each board I make is one of a kind. An original piece of Art that one would enjoy using for years to come.
Our wax is made of 100% food grade mineral oil and 100% food grade beeswax with a little touch of essential oils.
Deemed the ‘classic’ finish, waxes have been used for centuries to enhance wooden furniture, cutting boards, butcher blocks, etc and provide wood protection against stains. Made from natural ingredients, they produce a soft, satin sheen and give the boards a silky feel. The benefits of wax finish can be applied directly onto the board. Beeswax helps protect your boards. After regular use, your cutting board may become dry and dull. Conditioning them helps create a protective seal. If your using the board on a consistent basis you will want to condition it every 8-12 weeks.
To apply the wax simply spread it around and cover the entire board with your fingers or a soft cloth. Let the wax sit on the board for at least 30 min before wiping off the excess. Wait 2-3 days before re-using the board so it can fully dry.
