When admiring the deep complexion of an Ed Wohl cutting board, or running your hands against its sensuous wood surface, one feeling unfailingly arises: harmony. Each board crafted from a single piece of bird's eye maple, the wood tone and figuring are perfectly consistent. Then finely shaped, hand-beveled and smoothly sanded, the cutting surface emerges, firm and ethereal. Both practical and yet thoroughly artistic, Ed Wohl's cutting boards contain the perfect measure of beauty and strength.
How to care for your Ed Wohl Board
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. A Scotch Brite pad or fine sandpaper will smooth any roughness that develops. Kiln dried wood is highly susceptible to water and dampness. Never allow one edge or side to be left on a wet surface. Occasionally turn your hanging board to expose both sides to air. Do not store your board near a stove or other source of heat. Wiping occasionally with mineral oil or Edward's Cutting Board 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. Oil frequently and never put in a dishwasher. Hard Maple, found mostly in the northern US and southern Canada, is prized for its beauty and durability. No one knows what causes only one tree in about 500 to yield some wood that exhibits the distinctive bird’s-eye pattern. Since bird’s-eye maple varies tremendously in color and grain pattern, each cutting board is crafted using carefully selected sections from a single piece.
