Wood cutting boards are perfect for a splash of style in your kitchen.
There is an inescapable beauty that you find in wood that you can’t find in many other places. The natural grains and variations are not just attractive when used in kitchens, furniture and other materials, but wooden items can be practical as well. Here at WKS Wood Design, we create a lot of items made from wood, including everyday items that you can use and enjoy in your own kitchen, such as salt and pepper mills and wood cutting boards.
Not too long ago, the recommendation was made to switch to plastic cutting boards over wood ones because wooden cutting boards were thought to harbor bacteria more than plastic. However, over time, we have found out that wooden cutting boards are actually cleaner than their plastic counterparts, as well as a lot more attractive. Because wood cutting boards have the ability to trap bacteria in the porous surface, the bacteria cannot multiply, so they die. Plastic cutting boards, however, develop shallow scratches and cuts that are perfect for bacteria to thrive in! Additionally, plastic cutting boards are notorious for dulling chef knives. When you combine these facts with the fact that wood is far more attractive, why would you use anything but wood cutting boards?
At WKS Wood Design, we love making wood cutting boards because you can add so much variation and creativity to a small piece that will be enjoyed for years to come by those who use it.
