When you purchased one of our serving blocks or custom furniture pieces, you purchased more than just an object; you purchased hundreds of hours of frustration, experimentation and finally, that moment of pure JOY!
You didn't just purchase a "thing"...you purchased a piece of my heart, a part of my soul, a moment of my life.
Keeping your board beautiful
Maintenance on our blocks are fairly low, depending upon how it's used. After each use, wipe down with a damp cloth and spray with 1/2 white vinegar - 1/2 water mixture (this is a natural, simple and inexpensive disinfectant). Wipe off the vinegar, apply a few drops of Board Butter and massage it into the wood, applying more or less, as necessary to achieve that gorgeous, like-new finish.
Please refrain from ever putting your serving block in the dishwasher or allowing it to soak in the sink; the water temperature will cause your board to warp and/or crack...(this is not a good thing!)
To neutralize odors, rub a lemon on the surface and wipe clean. Always remember to add a few drops of oil to keep your board happy....and NEVER use vegetable or olive oil as a moisturizer; it can become rancid over time. We'll happily ship more Board Butter to you!!
If you're board feels rough, just take a scrubby or a piece of 600 - 800 grit sandpaper and give it a rub (always following the grain). This will exfoliate your board and create a mirror-smooth finish. Don't forget to reapply a bit of oil, afterwards!
