End Grain:

End grain boards are easy on your knives. With the wood fibers facing upwards, knives pass easily between the fibers rather than across them. This is gentler on the knives and keeps them sharper for longer. In addition it means the board can "self-heal" from scratches and cuts as the fibers swell and return to normal over time, hiding any past scratches. 

 

Maintenance:

Pretty please don't put your wood cutting boards in the dishwasher! This will quickly destroy them. To keep a cutting board like this looking beautiful for a lifetime, just rinse with a wet rag and then promptly wipe dry. Boards need to get fed with mineral oil on occasion to maintain their natural water resistance. Every month or two rub your board down with a healthy coating of mineral oil. Allow this to soak into the wood so that it can fight off any water from penetrating into the wood. To top it off, a thin coating of beeswax will give your board a sheen that will make it look like new again. Many "board butters" that you see on the market are a simple blend of mineral oil and beeswax and applying this will accomplish both in one step. (We even sell some right here on our site! Homemade in my own kitchen. The wife loves it when I get melted beeswax all over our cooking utensils!)
