Disclaimer : The information provided in this guide is for guidance only, Création ALL cannot be held responsible for misuse, abuse, damage to property or injury resulting from the use of the product.
Allergies : The finish was made with natural products such as pure tung oil and beeswax. Although from all my cumulative experience, I have not been aware of any case, make sure that no allergies exist in your environment related to these products. Never allow the wood to dry completely, perform at least the monthly treatment as suggested later in this guide.
Wood Movements : It is important to remember that at the beginning the board is made of natural wood, that means that the material reacts to its environment and that it can be affected by several elements in your house such as the rate of moisture, water absorption, exposure to heat or the use of household products.
Knife Marks : It is normal for your cutting board to show knife marks over time. Despite the strength of the end grain construction, the sharp metal of a knife blade will eventually leave marks.
Contamination of all kinds : If you use your board to cut raw meat, nothing prevents it but make sure you always disinfect the surface thoroughly before cutting other foods.
Keep the surface free of toxic products : The construction of the board as well as its original finish has been carried out without any product constituting a danger when in contact with food, it is important to continue on this way to not contaminate the food that will come in contact with the board.
