Deelis kitchen cutting boards are hand made one by one from Latvian Oak and Ash. They are 4cm thick and weight 4kg. Process is not fast, because first the tree boards need to be dried for five years. Than quality and best looking parts are selected and cut in same lengths keeping each boards own width.

Preserving wood by burning. We burn our boards just until they get black, afterwards we brush off all excess coal and finish them with linen or mineral oil, or bee wax.
After all boards have right angles, and smooth surfaces we can make them by your needs. We can just seal them with mineral oil or linen oil (it is more yellowish, but have nice scent), we can use bees wax. We can burn them by old japanees technique to make them black as coal. We can add leather handles and laser engrave your words.
Some of our boards have leather handles. For leather to last longer and withstand water it is soaked with bee wax.
