FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

HOW DO I CARE FOR MY BOARD?

Wash with warm water and soap, best to dry in the rack, not behind the taps (too much water). Do not soak in water or put in dishwasher - you don’t need to as the wood holds its anti-bacterial properties for life.

HOW AND WHAT DO I OIL MY BOARD WITH?

Depending on use, re-oil your board every month or whenever it looks a bit dull.

Re-oil your boards with our Board Care Oil. This is totally Food Safe, contains Mineral oil with a natural Camphor fragrance and can be applied directly to a dry board with paper towel, cloth or unused T-shirt.

WILL I GET KNIFE MARKS ON MY BOARD?

Your board will get very fine knife marks that will blend in over time, rather than big chunks like the cheap, bamboo boards or bits of plastic from plastic boards.

HOW IS MY BOARD MADE, WHAT IS MY BOARD MADE FROM & WHAT IS CAMPHOR LAUREL TIMBER?

The body of your board is made from one single piece of Camphor laurel timber and in the case of the Handle Board includes either a recycled Cedar or Eucalyptus handle.

Your board is made from Camphor laurel sourced sustainably from Byron Bay and other areas of New South Wales. Camphor laurel is an ECO Friendly timber, which means you’re doing a good thing for the environment when you purchase one of our boards (see Camphor facts
