How We Make Edge Grain Cutting Board Made For Customers In Ft Worth, TX?

Once our wok craftsman decides on the pattern and style for the edge grain cutting board the raw wood is cut into long strips of varying thickness. Each strip of wood is then made perfectly square by using a planer. Once planed, the wood is then sanded on a belt sander to insure uniform thickness of each wood strip. The strips of wood are then arranged into the desired pattern and glued together using a food safe wood glue.

Once glued, strips are compressed tightly together using a large, commercial clamping system. They are now set aside for a day or two to completely dry. Once dry they are removed from the clamping system and sanded again. The sanding process continues for quite some time as it will involve large belt sanders, rotary sanders, and finally professional hand sanding. The edge grain boards must be sanded until they achieve a perfectly smooth surface.

The boards are now immersed into a bath of mineral oil and set aside to dry for 24 hours. This process is repeated a second time to ensure the edge grain cutting board is fully treated to the high standards of Stag’s End. Many other cutting board companies only hand wipe their boards with oil which only provides limited protection to the boards.

The finished edge grain cutting board is now ready for a final buffing and then wrapped in butcher paper and sent to packaging to be shipped to Ft Worth, TX. We work hard to ensure each edge grain cutting board is the highest quality and provides years of cutting pleasure our customers in Ft Worth, TX.

What are the Advantages of an Edge Grain Cutting Board?

One of the primary advantages to purchasing an edge grain cutting board is the price. Edge grain cutting boards usually require less wood in the construction as well as less construction time. This results in a more affordable board. Edge grain cutting boards are often priced only 30% to 40% when compared to an edge grain cutting board.

Edge grain cutting boards usually require less maintenance. While you still want to occasionally give your edge grain cutting board a rub down with Stag’s End Wood Wax, it isn’t as necessary as with an end grain cutting board. The exposed end grains of the end grain cutting board need frequent applications of wood wax to ensure the end grain cutting board does not dry out and begin to lose its shape.

Edge grain cutting boards are ideal not only for preparation of fruits and vegetables but also for presentation. An edge grain cutting board can often double as a makeshift charcuterie board. Additionally, the edge grain cutting board is often thinner and more lightweight than an end grain cutting board. Edge grain cutting boards typically weigh about 6-9 pounds compared to 12-18 pounds for an end grain cutting board.
