We are currently in the process of finishing up another bigger kitchen project that has a few interesting features.
First is the cutting board, which will be seamlessly integrated in the wooden top. This way, a large part of the worktop surface can be used for all cutting preparation and simply wiped clean after use, without the hassle of washing large cutting boards in a too-small sink.
We make the cutting area like a classic butcher’s block, where wood is oriented vertically, so that the ‘end-grain’ is exposed on the surface - which is harder and more resilient to wear than ‘long-grain’. When we make a knife cut into such surface, we don’t cut across the wooden fibers (which makes a nasty mark), but (beacause they are running vertically) between them - which only separates them a little and with time (or when wiped with damp cloth) they get back together, so the surface remains pretty much mark-free. If we take good care of it, it will remain like new for a long time, or it will develop a nice patina if we don’t.
