We partnered with Board and Spoon's Ida Karelsen to design this white oak cutting board with leather handle. The leather given to Ida by a former leather worker turned potter. The handle is secured with black steel nails made in France using the same method since 1888.
Ida hand carves and sands each board multiple times at her home in rural Ontario. Finished with a food safe beeswax/mineral oil, this board will be used and enjoyed for years to come.
Wipe or rinse board clean with mild soap and water and wipe to dry. Do not place in the dishwasher or let the board sit in water.
Occasionally re-oiling with food grade mineral oil or beeswax/mineral oil blend (or coconut oil) will keep boards from drying and will help maintain colour.
We suggest using one side of the board for cutting and chopping and the other side for serving.
