American Heirloom’s New Jersey State Shaped Cutting Board is made from a 100% rapidly renewable bamboo plywood.
approximately 7¼ x 14⅛ inches and ¾ of an inch thick
American Heirloom boards are made of strong, eco-friendly bamboo, 3/4-inch thick, cross laminated with 3-ply formaldehyde-free strands for extra durability. The bamboo is organically grown in managed forests, an ecologically responsible alternative to the clear cutting of old growth forests. It is naturally anti-microbial.
The boards are finished like fine salad bowls, with an FDA-approved water based finish. Occasionally rubbing your board with mineral oil or olive oil will preserve it and give it a nice matte finish. The oil will also keep the bamboo from drying and cracking. We do not recommend submerging the board in water or putting it in the dishwasher. A quick wipe with a wet sponge is all the cleaning a well-maintained board needs.
Color and tone vary from board to board, due to the materials and process.
