Hey! So I got my 18x24 Maple cutting board today! EXACTLY 3 months to the day I ordered it from Dave. Apparently over the Winter he lost power for a week or two and fell incredibly behind. I completely understood and appreciated him explaining it to me when I called to inquire about it. I don't mind waiting for the best.
Anyway, I took it out, put the feet on, and washed it with hot soapy water. Then I oiled the crap out of it. 3 quarters of a 12oz. bottle. Used my hand to spread it around, let it soak in, and then rubbed it down with a paper towel.
It was at this point that my fiancee mentioned how it had a gently curve to it. I got eye level with it and there was definitely a curve to it. I guess warped? But how could that be?
Now I don't have AC so my kitchen was very warm and humid as we were beginning dinner. After dinner I went back to it and it was still curved. I oiled it more, using the rest of the bottle, and focused on the outside edges instead of the center. Not actually sure it would do anything but figured I could do it and it definitely still needed some oil anyway.
After wiping it down, it was still bent so to get an idea of how much I flipped it upside on my countertop and none of the 4 corners touched the actual counter. It seems to bulge in the middle.
Anyway, was hoping some of you could tell me what is going on with my board? I'm sure it is the humidity, etc., but I wanted to come and ask. I have a picture as well I will attach to hopefully give you some idea what I am talking about.
Anyway, amazing board. I chopped an apple and some salad on it and loved the amount of room I had and the sound it makes as the knife hits it. Really great.
Thank you for the information!
