Live Edge Slab vs. Live Edge Cutting Boards
Live edge slabs and live edge cutting boards are both made from a single piece of wood, unlike butcher block cutting boards. The difference is that slabs are cut much, much larger than cutting boards. This makes live edge slabs ideal for use as kitchen or island countertops, tabletops, and other permanent fixtures.
Live edge cutting boards are much more suited for uses like food preparation or as a serving tray, and can be easily shelved or put away for storage.
Sometimes natural edge cutting boards are referred to as slab cutting boards, or a “cutting board slab style” but for accuracy when buying you’ll want to understand that a natural edge slab is a piece of wood too big to be a cutting board.
The challenge with both live edge cutting boards and slabs is that in nature there are few uniform sizes. The tree itself dictates the length, width, thickness, and edge of these cutting boards – however, it’s also what makes them so unique. Our goal is to always honor the natural beauty, shape, and grain of the hardwood and bring those genuine vivid details into your kitchen.
Food Preparation Safe
After being both air and kiln-dried, our live edge cutting boards are sanded smooth and then sealed with our butcher block mineral oil formula.
The sealing process is repeated three times to ensure that every piece including the natural edge of the cutting board is protected from potential water damage. This helps to ensure there isn’t any separation between the natural bark edge of this cutting board and the smooth cutting surface through years of use.
Once you receive your cutting board you can continue using mineral oil for maintenance, or choose a food-safe oil that works for you. You should never put a natural edge cutting board in the dishwasher, or leave it in the sink to soak. Overexposure to water as well as heat can cause warping, mold, and other undesirable problems. A well-maintained live edge cutting board can last a whole lifetime of use!
