Thai Tamarind Cutting Board - Large

We have only a few dozen of these large heavy tamarind cutting boards. 

The minimum size is 11" but almost all of them are 11.25", which is larger than you might think.  Every board is about 2.5" thick (some 2 3/8").  Weight is about 14 lbs, so this is for serious chefs who are not afraid of a 14 lb block of wood in the kitchen.  

NEW: We also have a 13" size

Perfectly complements our new handmade heavy cleaver (also shown in picture).

The wood is properly dried and ready to ship.  We have seen over the years some of our larger, thicker boards crack in really cold, dry climates. If you live in such a region, don't order the large boards in winter season.  Keep at room temperature for best results.

A solid block of end-grain exotic hardwood from a tamarind tree. Tamarind wood is well-known in Thailand as the very best for cutting boards, used to make all Thai recipes. This round slice from the center of a tamarind tree. 

What makes this cutting board so special? Typically, cutting boards use flat planks of cross-cut wood, which makes your knife blade go dull quicker. End-grain wood is superior, and end-grain butcher blocks sell for a high price but those are made of little blocks glued together.

For generations in Thailand, cooks have always used the wood of solid tamarind tree because it's the perfect material. Indeed, customers have noted from our street vendor photo and our street vendor video series that all chefs are using the same style of cutting board.

The board itself is so dense that even 40 grit sandpaper on an industrial belt sander will hardly reduce it, yet gentle on your knife. With end grain wood, especially from the tamarind tree, your knife will stay sharp a lot longer because as it hits the board the grains are straight (like a super-tight brush) rather than sideways.

Some things about the cutting board are less than perfect.
There is a cheap red plastic handle on the side of every board, affixed with two small screws.  On the smaller boards these are fine.  On the 16 lb boards they are likely to break, not able to carry the weight.  We recommend removing it.  

You might notice that the wood might have a few small natural marks on it. The wood also might have small surface cracks. Some have very little cracking, others have it on just one side. Most show marks as seen below, branch stems in the wood.  Based on our experimentation at home, the cracks respond well if you condition your cutting board immediately by rubbing it several times with mineral oil. This helps contract the wood back. The small cracks also fill in with beeswax, or parafin wax. We notice that when street vendors are using tamarind cutting boards in Thailand, the odd small crack is fairly normal. With standard cleaning and use of vinegar & bleach on a regular basis (as with any cutting board) your cutting board will last forever. We've tried to show in pictures above what you can expect.

Important: How to Care For Your Tamarind Cutting Board. 
When you get this cutting board, promptly season it by applying a generous amount of mineral oil to it. Wipe thoroughly and let it soak in. Repeat several times over the course of the first week you own it, then apply once per month. Available at any drug store (laxative section) mineral oil is inexpensive and works wonders. It seals the grain from bacteria, prevents absporption, and keeps the wood moisturized to prevent splitting.

Beeswax is an all natural anti-bacteria that seals your cutting board also. You can buy pure beeswax online but also in some stores. Pure beeswax is made into candles that you can use as well. At ImportFood.com we love beeswax with a passion, and raise bees as a hobby. Tamarind, cutting boards, and beeswax are a nice combination of things we love the most. A home recipe for a good cutting board preservative: Mix 10 parts mineral oil to 1 part paraffin or bees wax. Carefully warm the mixture in a microwave just until the wax melts. Apply to your cutting board warm.

Note: Never submerge cutting boards in a sink of water. Re-seasoning once a week helps seal the wood against bacteria. An oil finish also helps prevent the wood from cracking or pulling apart at the seams. Linseed oil or flax seed oil is ideal for seasoning. You can also use food grade mineral oil for seasoning. Before applying oil to the cutting board, warm the oil slightly. Apply the oil with a soft cloth, in the direction of the wood’s grain, allowing the oil to soak in. Allow the oil to soak in a few minutes, then wipe of all surface oil with dry and clean cloth. When applied, mineral oil seals the pores of the wood blocking the penetration of moisture.

Sanding: when refinishing a cutting board, you may wish to sand the surface of the wood to remove old stains, scratches, and marks. Cutting boards should be kept dry when not in use. Resident bacteria survive no more than a few hours without moisture.

A solid block of end-grain exotic hardwood from a tamarind tree. Tamarind wood is well-known in Thailand as the very best for cutting boards, used to make all Thai recipes.
