This XL round Shabbat cutting board holds 2 challah loaves easily. The cutting board is decorated on one side with pyro (pyrography) burning and color. The flip side sanded smooth to use as cutting board. It is turned with an indent to make it easy to grasp for flipping it over. There is pyro work on one whole side as well as the edges and the indentation leading up to the cutting board.
This XL round Shabbat cutting board is colored with paints in black and gold with accents of blue. There is a polyurethane finish over the paints for durability. The cutting board side of the challah board is finished with mineral oil. The cutting board side must be re-oiled periodically to keep it looking fresh.
How often to re-oil? Generally, by looking at the wood you can see that is has lost it’s sheen. That will tell you that it needs a re-oiling. The process is easy. Rub the mineral oil on to the board and wipe it off with a clean lint free towel or rag. Leave to dry a few days and it is good to go.
This cutting board is a custom project at Etz-Ron. The cutting board can also be left in it’s natural colors. See the photo with no color or oil applied.
This cutting board already has a family. You will get one that is similar. You can choose the hues you like and it will be colored on one side according to your color preferences. Please contact me with your color preferences in the notes section of your order.
There is a lot of work involved in this project, lead time is 4-6 weeks. If it is to be colored, I will finish the board with multiple coats of polyurethane everywhere except the cutting surface.
Because this board is chunky, the cutting board side can also be renewed periodically by sanding it down and refinishing it. It is a cutting board that will last a lifetime if treated properly.
