I'm a beginner in Wood Working and just discovered End-Cut cutting boards that are frightfully expensive, but worth every penny. I intend to make one for myself, and the wood alone, will cost about $50, not including my time to make. For completness sake, you should also provide this very expesive cutting boards in your reviews.

Hi Michael
Great blog. We scrub plastic and wood boards with mild detergent and then put them in the sun in a sheltered place (no bird droppings!) and the ultraviolet light in the sun sanitizes them. We live at a moderate altitude where there is a high UV light level.

This method also works for any kitchen gear, and should also be used with scrubbers, klitchen cloths and sponges. AND it's cheap!

Regards
Baz

Aaag! I just ruined my wooden cutting board by microwaving it. The smell of cooked resin or glue still pervades the house. The microwave caused what had looked like one solid piece of wood to fall apart. Maybe it works with really thick boards, but I am here to warn you NOT to try to sanitize your beloved wooden chopping board in the microwave. I feel like an idiot, especially since my wife was asking me what I was doing and I was reassuring that I read all about it on the internet, so not to worry. Sad

Oh no! How long did you microwave the board and how powerful was the microwave oven? I'm going to remove the mention of microwaving as a potential sanitization method as I haven't recommend it in years (because it can dry out and split a wooden board if not careful... and apparently melt resin/glue in the case of your board). I can't believe some of these articles are ten years old now.

I'll throw in another tip for wooden cutting boards (not end-cut).

When washing them, wash BOTH sides, even if you've only used just one. Water makes wood swell and if you repeatedly wash just one side even that tiny bit of swelling will eventually cause the board to warp. So get both sides wet when you wash.
