Edward Wohl’s solid bird’s-eye maple cutting boards are unlike any you’ve seen. Each board is crafted by joining sections from a single piece of specially selected, figured bird’s-eye maple, so the wood tone and figuring are consistent throughout. Each is precision-shaped and beveled for graceful shape and balance. Individually hand-sanded and finished to a sensual silkiness, each board is an art object designed to add aesthetic and utilitarian pleasure to your daily life.
To care for your board, hand wash with a mild detergent and warm water. Towel dry and initially store in a drying rack so that both sides can dry evenly. A Scotch Brite™ pad or fine sandpaper will smooth any roughness that develops. Kiln dried wood is highly susceptible to water and dampness. Never allow one edge or side to be left on a wet surface. Occasionally turn your hanging board to expose both sides to air. Do not store your board near a stove or other source of heat. Wiping occasionally with mineral oil or Edward’s Cutting Board Oil renews the finish and protects the wood. Let the oil soak in for several hours or overnight and wipe off the excess. To avoid staining, do not leave non stainless metal objects on a wet board.
Oil frequently and never put in a dishwasher.
