What is end grain (or end grain)?
End grain cutting boards are made from end pieces of wood. It usually has a checkerboard pattern, which is the main feature by which you can tell it is an end-grain cutting board. This type of wooden cutting board is a bit more expensive, but some people consider it valuable because it is better for the knives. End grain cutting boards have a "self-healing factor" as the fibers close after being cut by the knife.
We use a food safe linseed oil varnish to treat our products.
There are many benefits to using flaxseed oil and these are just a few of them:
- The oil enhances the color of the wood and brings out the grain, giving the wood a more textured look
- It is non-toxic and therefore very environmentally friendly
- Prevents wood from cracking as it prevents the wood from drying out
- It helps cover up some scratches
- The oil penetrates deep into the wood and forms a good protective barrier against the elements.
