This is another Mesquite serving board that owes its unique shape to the process of removing the worm holes that punctuate this type of wood. Like always, it was hand sanded and oiled. Grain character is individually unique. Use it as a serving board but don't be afraid to cut on it... it's mesquite.. Thank you for looking
Simple Care and Maintenance:
Our wood offerings are sealed with several applications of food-safe mineral oil using open palms to better imbed oils into the wood grains... a method we have found expresses the full richness and patina of the wood. We use mineral oil because it penetrates deep into the wood grain to offer a better initial seal. The oil or surface product you use should be a personal choice.
Simple maintenance only needs a mild soap scub-down and thorough rinse. The piece should then be allowed to dry before use. You should periodically oil the board after cleaning and drying for a time in direct sunlight. Oil the whole board with your hands, gently working any dry patches to an even application. You can feel when you've reached a saturation point. Allow it to set for several hours before using. Beeswax products can bring out more luster than oil but can be short-lived, and specialty cutting board oils are fine also. Try virgin olive oil as an occasional alternative. And...enjoy.
