The oak wood items in this Blackline collection utilizes a natural reactive process to darken the wood. No pigments are used to create the black color. This unique technique works with the tannic acid that is inherent in white oak to develop a deep, durable, food safe dye. Natural dyes will wear over time. As with most natural processes, some variation in color is to be expected.
After years working in the furniture and interiors industry Joshua Vogel created Blackcreek Mercantile & Trading Co. as a way to explore small scale product design and manufacturing, and to reconnect himself with the practice and idea of handmade goods.
TAKING CARE OF THIS PRODUCT
If wood is dry or finish appears dull, maintain with regular applications of Blackcreek cutting board oil. Think of oiling as a protective moisturizing step for your wood. We recommend applying a liberal amount of cutting board oil to dry wood with either a brush or clean cloth. Allow the oil to absorb into the wood (we usually let it sit overnight). Wipe off any excess oil with a clean, dry cloth or a paper towel. Clean up with soap and water.
