THE GREAT, THE KNOTTY, AND THE CRACKED!
WHAT GOES INTO OUR PRODUCTS
What makes a good wooden product for your kitchen? First, the right piece of wood needs to be selected. Free of knots, cracks, and defects which can weaken and distort wooden products overtime. Once the wood is selected, it’s imperative to ensure every cut is precise and on a sharp angle. Assembly is crucial to ensure every seam is securely bonded to one another to guarantee a long lasting union. A good sanding and a treatment of The Bearded Chef Hydrating Oil and Wood Balm finishes a beautiful and strong natural wooden item for your kitchen.
