BOARD CARE

Mez Woodworks end grain cutting boards can last a lifetime, and even longer. They are supremely durable and naturally beautiful, as well as being an art piece for the kitchen. However, like all wooden cutting boards, they can be susceptible to warping and cracking when not properly cared for.

Wood Armor

Mineral Oil

Mineral oil is food-safe, doesn’t go rancid, and helps prevent water from seeping down into the wood grain.  Mineral oil also prevents your prized cutting board from drying out and cracking.

Applying Mineral Oil

Using a soft cloth, spread two quarter sized amounts of mineral oil on each side of the cutting board, let the oil soak in for at least 5 minutes.  Wipe off excess if desired.  You can reuse your cloth each day if you’d like to minimize waste.  You can use your cutting board every day, just be sure to clean and oil your board after each use.

Wood Armor - Even Better!

Wood Armor contains a special blend of mineral oil and organic beeswax.  This adds another layer of protection for your prized end grain cutting board.  You can also use Wood Armor on any unfinished wood product you use in the kitchen or at the dinner table!

Fruits and Vegetables

After cutting fruits or vegetables, just wipe dry and apply mineral oil as normal.

Raw Meat

After use, wash with a small amount of warm water and a very small amount of dish soap.  Rinse and dry the board, then, immediately apply mineral oil as normal.

Serrated Knives

Avoid using serrated knives on the cutting board, they have a tendency to saw away the surface.

Water

Do not let your cutting board sit in moisture for an extended amount of time.

Dry Storage

Store your Mez Woodworks cutting board in a dry place.

THE PROCESS

  • 01

    Design

    The design is the most important part of the process.  Without a good design, nothing else works.

  • 02

    Wood Selection

    The most beautiful cutting boards require very meticulous selection when it comes to the woods used.

  • 03

    Wood Preparation

    Every piece of hardwood used goes through a rigorous preparation process.

  • 04

    Precision Cutting

    Precision tools and techniques are used to make each cut perfect.

  • 05

    Assembly

    Every cutting board is assembled with great care.  Gluing requires 24 hour drying time and some boards require three or more gluing sessions.

  • 06

    Finishing

    Beveling, cutting hand holds, sanding, oiling, waxing, attaching feet.  This step requires the most hands-on time, but is also the most rewarding.

THE COMPANY

WE ARE UNIQUE

THE TEAM

Sanding the Purple Wave

Mez Woodworks is a father-son team.

When I started Mez Woodworks, it was just me, Sean Gomez.  Now, I’ve brought my son Caleb into the business.  Today, Caleb is becoming a master woodworker as we learn every day, together.

Our Mission: To make the most beautiful cutting boards you’ve ever seen.

You can buy yourself a nice cutting board just about anywhere.  We wanted to make something much better than “nice”.  Something that is so beautiful, so artistic, and yet supremely durable that nothing could compare.

Doing this means spending real time on each cutting board.  At least 15 hands-on hours over the course of four days go into each and every end grain cutting board we make.  See more about the process here.

Above all, though, it’s a labor of love.  We’ve thoroughly enjoyed bringing these works of art to life, and we hope you too can enjoy one of these amazing cutting boards for yourself!

Far and away the best prize that life has to offer is the chance to work hard at work worth doing.

WHY OUR BOARDS

Durability

End grain cutting boards are, by their very nature very durable.  Each knife cut goes between the wood grain, rather than cutting through them.

Self Healing

Because knife cuts go between the wood grain, the wood grain can come back together much more easily.  Edge grain cutting boards can’t do that.

Antibacterial

Against commonly accepted beliefs, end grain cutting boards are much less susceptible to bacteria growth and in fact inhibit and kill bacteria.

Knives Stay Sharper

Because you are cutting between the wood grains, your knives are cutting on a naturally forgiving surface, keeping your knives sharper.
