Inspired by the wood inlays and medallions of her husband’s flooring manufacturing company, Jennifer and her husband Bill, have been providing beautiful inlays in wood cutting boards since 2006. Kentucky Cutting Boards offers several styles of uniquely hand-crafted cutting boards that are made from sustainable yield hardwoods.
Their hand-crafted cutting boards are made from Appalachian Maple, the striped Cheese Boards from Maple / American Cherry and the Artisan Bread Boards from American Hickory.
Because their company is based in Louisville, Kentucky, it’s no surprise that their selection of horse themed boards are very popular. The Artisan Bread Board with Horse Head Silhouette Inlay is crafted with Walnut.
Realtors often purchase the Appalachian Maple Cutting Board with Pineapple inlay as a gift for new homeowners. It features Brazilian Cherry Pineapple and African Wenge cross-hatch.
One of my personal favorites is the Appalachian Maple Cutting Board (16″ diameter) with Celtic Trinity Inlay. It features Purple Heart and African Wenge. There are also several Fleur de Lis styles available for purchase.
Although the inlaid side of the cutting boards are safe to cut and serve food on, it is recommended that you cut on the alternate side, and use the design side for display in order to retain the beauty of the different species of wood. Caring for the boards requires little effort, as simple steps can help preserve the rich colors and quality of wood. Washing the boards by hand with soap and water, not heating or refrigerating the boards, and also not allowing them to soak in water is recommended. You should also avoid storing them in closed, unventilated spaces. Occasionally applying mineral or salad bowl oil after washing will also help keep the boards in good condition.
