Before your board is used for the first time; choose one side for cutting and a preferred side for serving. Some woods are softer and more porous than others and with normal use the wood can become rough and show wear.
To further protect your board, a top coat of Ottercreek Woodworks Wood Balm is highly recommended to condition and add protection from stains and moisture. Our wood balm is made from the highest quality local beeswax created by hard working local honey bees and is available in 2oz and 4oz sizes.
After use wipe with a damp cloth. Never submerge your board in water. Store in a dry place away from direct sunlight. Boards with a live bark edge should be handled with care. Do not expose to direct heat or place hot times on your board.
