HOW TO ORDER:
Send us a scanned copy of the recipe that you would like engraved. Please make certain that the scan is of high quality. .jpg Files work best. To do this, most scanners have a "Scan to Photo" option. This is the best way to scan the image. If you do not have a scanner, you can take your recipe to the nearest Kinko's or FedEx Office location and they can scan it for you for a nominal fee (take a flash drive with you for ease!). Please note that the iPhone/iPad scanning app will not work. Please use a flatbed scanner.
If you want to send us the file prior to ordering to make certain we can engrave it, please email it to: email@example.com and we will review it. PLEASE NOTE: Recipes with doodles, crinkles, lines, watermarks or stains, may engrave with those parts of the image as well. We will do our best to clean up your image, but we cannot guarantee that all anomalies will be removed. PLEASE NOTE: PHOTOGRAPHS OF RECIPES DO NOT ENGRAVE WELL.
If you would prefer to have the recipe in a typed script font, we can do that as well, simply send us the recipe and we'll send you a proof of the recipe typed up before we engrave it!
We've built your cutting board by hand, selecting each piece of wood for maximum beauty and durability. We never use stains, paints or other artificial colorings. Our woodworking process is designed to bring out the natural beauty of each piece of wood that comes through our shop. Each board is constructed with functionality in mind. We build for you only what we would use for ourselves and our family. These boards are built to withstand normal kitchen use. Please remember that wooden cutting boards are not dishwasher safe and should be hand-washed with soap and warm water after use, then towel dried for maximum longevity.
We use only all natural food safe finishes on our products. No chemicals are ever used during production or finishing. We hand mix an all natural cleaner for the production process to remove dust and residue prior to finishing, then your cutting board is conditioned and sealed prior to shipment with our home-made wood butter, a mixture of natural food safe oil and beeswax from an organic bee farm. We provide instructions for care so that you can keep your board (and any other wood products) well conditioned and functioning as well as beautiful for as long as you wish to use it.
You can purchase our home-made wood butter to keep your board looking beautiful.
DO NOT leave your cutting board submerged in water, or place in the dishwasher. This can cause warping, and in severe cases, cracking.
DO NOT Apply any type of vegetable or nut oil, as these oils will eventually turn rancid after applied.
If you have any questions about custom wood cutting board care, please contact us!
Our custom cutting boards are perfect, personalized and unique gifts for Mother's Day, weddings, housewarmings, birthdays and anniversaries. If you would like this board made from a different wood or with a custom, laser engraved design or message, email us and we will design one just for you!
Due to the unique qualities of our boards, they may vary slightly in size (+/- 0.25"), color or grain pattern than the board shown in this listing. Each board is a hand-made work of art and as such will be unique.
Remember that we offer custom orders as well. If you want something truly unique, we are happy to work with you to make certain that you get exactly the board you desire.
