Words with Boards is brainchild of Kim Strassner and Mike Pararas, a Baltimore based couple with backgrounds in product development and design. "We fabricated our first cutting board from leftover butcher block as holiday gifts for friends and family. To give the pieces added interest, we personalized the boards by carving words into the wood. “Words” traveled fast, as did their popularity.  In 2015, Words with Boards™ was named a Martha Stewart AMERICAN MADE Design finalist. Today, amid a sea of choices for cutting boards, Words with Boards™ is the only company that hand-cuts words into the wood. Hand- crafted from sustainably forested American hardwoods, our one-of-a-kind boards are made and hand-finished in our newly expanded studio in Baltimore’s eclectic Hampden community."

Here are some great tips from the artists on caring for a wooden cutting board:

1. Clean your wood cutting board. After each use, clean your cutting board with mild soapy water. To sanitize it, sprinkle some coarse salt on the board and rub with half a lemon or baking soda.

2. Oil your wood cutting board. After the board is clean and completely dry, spray your cutting board with our food-grade mineral oil with lemon essential oil. Make sure you get in between those letters!

3. Let the oil soak in as long as possible (overnight is best) and wipe off excess with a lint-free cloth.

4. Repeat. You should repeat these steps when the board feels dry. More often in the beginning and less often over time.

5. Restore. Return your cutting board to its original finish by hand-sanding the surface with 320 grit sand paper. Wipe off with damp cloth then follow instructions from step #2.
