Crafted at Home!
Local and handmade
Crafted at Home came about from a passion of handmade things. We would spend weekends looking for items that were made in America, often at swap meets and fairs, and often were disappointed with how little was out there. This became more apparent as we shopped for solid wood furniture. Over the years we began building our own items and that turned into making items for friends and family. That lead us too today.
Frank and Caroline are local crafters that have a passion for handmade things. Our shop and home are in North Idaho in the small town of Athol. Inspirations come from our own love of rustic things and practical items everyone needs for their home.
Our focus right now will be on limited items as we kick start and expand our products. Beautiful cutting boards, rustic picture frames, coasters, and charcuterie boards are up first.
How to Properly Clean Your Wood Cutting Board
To clean using hot water, sponge and a light amount of soap, scrub off any foods and fluids that have come into touch with the board.
Bacteria can grow inside knicks and scratches on the wood cutting board surface. These imperfections occur naturally from normal daily use.
Remove any lingering bacteria by using a disinfectant such as pure white vinegar or diluted household bleach. Dip a cloth in your solution of choice and wipe off the wood surface on both sides.
After you have disinfected your board, the most important part is to wipe it with a dry cloth. This last step is the most important for maintaining your cutting board, as water permeating the wood is what causes the wood fibers to swell and then warp your board. This is why you should never soak your cutting board in water and never put it into the dish washer.
Apply board butter on your clean dried cutting board.
