What is end grain wood?
End grain cutting boards are made from end pieces of wood. It usually has a checkerboard pattern, which is the main feature that lets you know it is an end grain cutting board. This type of wood cutting board is a little more expensive, but some people consider it valuable because it is better for the knives. End grain cutting boards have a "self-healing" factor because the fibers close after they are cut by the knife.

We use a food-safe linseed oil varnish to treat our products.
There are many benefits to using linseed oil, and these are just a few of them:

  • The oil improves the color of the wood and highlights the grain, making the wood look more structured
  • It is non-toxic and therefore very environmentally friendly
  • Prevents wood from cracking as it prevents the wood from drying out
  • It helps to cover some scratches
  • The oil penetrates deep into the wood and forms a good protective barrier against the elements.
