Cutting Board and Charcuterie Board Care

How to care for your MoonDawgs custom cutting board or charcuterie board after use to make it last for years.

MoonDawgs Board Butter

A special mix of organic beeswax and food-grade mineral oil blended to keep your board looking fresh.

Your MoonDawgs cutting board will last for years to come because every board is made with kiln-dried hardwoods and coated with special food-grade oils and finish before you ever get it. To keep the rich wood finish on your cutting board or charcuterie board make sure you do not put your cutting board in the dishwasher.

Wash the cutting board with soap and warm water and scrub well. After washing, dry immediately with a towel and let it finish air-drying standing up or on a raised rack with airflow. The bottom of the board will need this air to dry.

If your board starts to look a little dry ro not as fresh as you would like, MoonDawgs sells a special board cream that we handmix that can be applied if your board. we mix special organic beeswax with high-quality, food-grade mineral oil which will help your cutting board look brand new. Ask for this special blend when you purchase your board, or email us to send you a can which retails for $5. You can always rub food-grade mineral oil on the board to keep it looking fresh too.

To apply board cream to your cutting board or charcuterie board, wait until the board is dry after washing. Apply a small amount of the cream onto the board. using a soft cloth, buff the cream/wax into the wood in a circular pattern, forming a thin coat. repeat over the entire surface of the board and especially the sides.

How often you need to apply the board cream depends on how often you use your cutting board or charcuterie board and is definitely a personal preference.  Most customers only apply MoonDawgs board cream every every 6 months and some only once a year.

MoonDawgs also offers a refinishing service for our own boards or any other special cutting boards that you may have.  Email us at and ask about our board re-finishing service.
