Our boards aren't just functional,
they’re statement pieces.
Display culinary creations in style at your next gathering on one of our unique charcuterie boards. Our boards add a touch of elegance to any buffet-style entertaining or small get together with friends.
When you need a board for heavy-duty chopping, our end grain chopping blocks are ideal. Their durability and versatility make them the perfect tool for any kitchen. Whether you’re using them to chop, cut, prep, or serve, our chopping blocks are a chef’s best friend.
Cutting boards aren’t just for chopping food anymore, they’re eye-catching décor. When you’re not using your gorgeous wooden board, display it on your kitchen island, or counter or lean it against the backsplash.
We’re a father and son business located in Farmington, New Mexico. Woodworking is a Ring family passion. Recent opportunities have allowed us to explore this passion and share it with others with the launch of J & E Ring Woodworks in October 2021.
For centuries, kitchens have been a gathering place for families to share meals, stories, laughter, and traditions. Our vision is to create products that aren’t merely functional but become cherished heirlooms for future generations.
We carefully curate a selection of high-quality hardwoods (Black Walnut, Hard Maple, Cherry, Padauk and White Oak)
The carefully curated wood is then reimagined into a collection of handcrafted charcuterie boards, chopping blocks, and cutting boards. Our boards are soaked in Howard brand food-safe mineral oil and sealed with Howard brand food-safe cutting board conditioner.
At J & E Ring Woodworks, craftsmanship and durability is the foundation of our products.
Caring for Your
J & E Ring Woodworks
Congratulations on investing in a quality cutting board from J & E Ring Woodworks!
There are many benefits to using a wooden cutting board — they’re sturdy, durable, gentle on knives, long-lasting, and they’re beautiful.
If this is your first wooden cutting board, you’re going to love it! If you already own a wooden cutting board, you’re probably familiar with how to care for it. But it’s always good to have a refresher.
A little TLC protects your board and will help extend its life for years.
The following care tips can be applied to our cutting boards, chopping blocks, and charcuterie boards.
Washing Your Board
Always hand wash your J & E Ring Woodworks board. Never place it in the dishwasher or submerge it in a sink full of water for more than a few minutes as this can cause it to crack.
If you’ve only cut bread on your board, simply brush off the crumbs.
To clean your board after chopping veggies, fruit, cheese, or meat, put a little dish soap on one side and rub it vigorously with a scrubbing brush. Repeat this step for the other side then rinse your board with hot water.
Always wash both sides of the board even if you only used one side to chop the food. Washing both sides allows the board to swell and dry evenly, which will help prevent warping.
After you’ve washed your board, stand it up on one edge and allow it to thoroughly dry overnight.
Oiling & Conditioning Your Board
How frequently you oil and condition your board depends on a couple of things: the type of wood, where it's stored, and how often you use it.
We recommend doing this at least once a month. If you notice your board looking dull and ragged, increase the frequency. Chopping blocks may require conditioning more frequently due to their end grain construction.
Taking these steps will enhance the natural look of the grain and provide added protection.
Step 1. Before oiling and conditioning your board, make sure it’s clean and dry by following the instructions above.
Step 2. After you’ve allowed your board to dry overnight, use your hands to apply a layer of food-grade mineral oil to the top, bottom, and sides of your cutting board. If it has a handle, apply mineral oil to it as well. Don’t go overboard; an even coat just enough to cover the wood is perfect.
We use Howard food-grade mineral oil available at retailers and online.
Step 3. Set the board on its edge like before and allow the oil to soak in for at least three hours.
Step 4. After the oil has soaked into the grain, apply a cutting board wood conditioning wax with a lint-free microfiber cloth. These conditioners are made from a mix of beeswax and mineral oil.
We recommend Howard Cutting Board Conditioner or Howard Wax-It-All food-grade wax.
Step 5. When the entire board is coated with the conditioner or wax, set it up on its side again and allow it to sit overnight.
Step 6. You’re now at the final step. Take a lint-free microfiber cloth and rub it on the board in a circular motion, like you’re polishing a car. Be sure to get both sides and edges.
You’re all finished!
