What is end grain (or end grain)?
End grain cutting boards are made from end pieces of wood. It typically has a checkerboard pattern, which is the main feature by which you can tell it is an end grain cutting board. Although this type of wooden cutting board is a bit more expensive, 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 improves the color of the wood and highlights the grain, making the wood look more textured
- 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.
