We can only engrave the face of the board, not on the edges. Choose an area where you are less likely to chop, and consider selecting a larger board for a greater chopping area. Alternately you can request that we not install feet so that your board can be flipped for chopping on the other side.
Maple engraves the best, followed by cherry and then walnut.

Hand-wash with hot, soapy water. Always dry thoroughly.
Never soak or submerge board in water, or place in the dishwasher.
To help maintain water repellency, apply our Board Butter (or a combination of heated mineral oil and beeswax) to the cutting surface periodically. First clean and sanitize the board, then apply paste with a soft cloth. Rub into the surface and wipe off any excess.
