Wisconsin based artist, Edward Wohl has been designing and building custom wood furniture, bird’s-eye maple cutting boards and serving trays for over thirty five years. His architectural background and sculptural approach are evident in the lustrous look, liquid feel and definitive utility of his creations. Bird’s-eye maple is an anomaly of hard maple. Perhaps only one in 500 hard maple trees will exhibit this pattern, and experts are uncertain why it occurs. The beauty and durability of hard maple make it the perfect wood for cutting boards.
To care for your board, hand wash with a mild detergent and warm water. Towel dry and initially store in a drying rack so that both sides can dry evenly. Do not store your board near a stove or other source of heat. Wiping occasionally with mineral oil renews the finish and protects the wood. Let the oil soak in for several hours or overnight and wipe off the excess. To avoid staining, do not leave non stainless metal objects on a wet board. A Scotch Brite pad or fine sandpaper will smooth any roughness that develops.
