We’re hand Made In America and proud of it! When we first started Soundview Millworks we were making boards from scrap lumber in our dad’s garage, reclaiming oak and Maple from pallets and construction sites. Today, our shop is a little bigger ( but not much) and our product is a lot more consistent, We’ve honed our skills and have the most consistent and the best available products. We take great pride in the fact that all of our pieces are still hand made in the USA and stand behind our product 100%
Our finishing process and product preparation is unlike any other – each part and board is inspected through the many phases of the production and finishing process. To create our product we start with the finest American maple and Santos mahogany - both known for their durability and tight grain pattern. For the finishing process we first dampen the board, causing the grain pattern to raise. Once dried we hand sand the boards and apply 3 coats of mineral oil to the boards, fully saturating the pores and protecting them from staining, moisture, bacteria, etc.
CARE OF YOUR BOARD
While your board has been lovingly prepared and finished for you by our hands, it's now time for you to continue to care for it! Wooden boards, bowls, boards and utensils need care and oil. We recommend keeping your board coated liberally in Mineral oil, if you want to get fancy, melt some bees wax into the oil and apply it to the board when dry and clean. Let it sit over night and wipe off the excess. The bees wax will help keep the pores of the board sealed and give your item a natural luster. There is no science to when to care for your board, if it looks dry, give 'er a coat. You can also use a butcher block oil or item similar for wooden cutting board treatment – we don’t recommend vegetable or olive oils as they can go rancid.
Wooden cutting boards should NEVER be put in the dishwasher. To clean your board, simply was its with light soaped water, and towel dry it promptly after washing. Don’t place a wet or damp board on a flat surface as the moisture will get trapped between the board and surface – perhaps sent it up against a backsplash and rest it upside-down on the handles for air to freely flow around it. You can use salt and a freshly cut lemon half to clean the board if some staining occurs (google this practice, its great!). Store your board in a temperate dry place – remember, moisture and temperature changes are enemy #1! Be sure to re-coat your board if it beings to appear dry.
