This is the first design we came up with when planning this Pueblo collection inspired by the "stepped-back" architecture found in Pueblo style homes. It is made of mostly maple contrasting with the off centered "stepped-back" design of high character walnut. These "Everyday" boards are designed to be left out on the counter, ready for daily use. It has cove handles on the ends to make it easy to pick up and go.
Care: Hand-wash your handmade wooden board with a mild soap and warm water. Wipe dry by hand and allow it to dry upstanding. Never allow your board to sit in water, aka dishwasher or filled sink. Your beautiful board can split or crack under those conditions. White vinegar or lemon can be used to disinfect and remove smelly odors.
Note* After your first wash the board may feel fuzzy. This is normal! With use, the fuzzy surface will eventually wear off and will become smoother.
Maintaining: Use a food-safe or mineral oil to polish your board when it starts to look dry. This helps maintain its beautiful finish, prevents cracking and protects the grain against bacteria and helps repel water.
Remember! With proper care, this board will only become more beautiful over time and use! Knife marks, dinks and scuffs will add true character and unique depth. Can't wait for your board to gain its own character over the years!
