Not your average cutting board
We created the Original Maggie Board with versatility in mind. Not only is it a beautiful show piece, but it can serve many functions in an easy to maintain, compact size -- perfect for any kitchen or bar, or even to take on the go in a camper or RV. The long, narrow design creates ample space for everyday cutting tasks when turned over to it's flat side. Both sides can easily be used for food service at dinner, serving up a snack, or a fun charcuterie spread for guests. But the gamechanger is the integrated pocket cut into the front side.
This pocket can be used as a salt rimmer that perfectly fits any sized margarita glass right next to a convenient surface for cutting your lime garnishes. Each board even includes a small porcelain dish, great for rimming your glass with lime or lemon juice before adding your salt. Not into margaritas? How about a bloody mary, michelada, lemon drop, or any other salt, spice, or sugar-rimmed cocktail you can dream up? Just dip your glass in the dish, rim it in the pocket, and cut any garnish your heart desires right there on the same board!
These boards aren't just highly functional... they're about as easy to maintain as you can imagine. We soak all of our boards in a mineral oil bath, then finish them with our own "board butter"; a blend of mineral oil, beeswax, and lemon oil. This protective finish means your board will easily repel water and minor stains the moment you bring it home. A quick hand-wash under warm water, towel dry, and you're ready to go. What does this all add up to? More fun, with fewer dishes! Perfect for any sized kitchen or bar, but especially those where space is at a premium. Over time, as the board starts to appear "dry", simply wipe on a board conditioner like our J. Wilder Board Butter, leave overnight, then buff off the next day. This simple routine will keep your board looking and functioning like new for years to come.
A WORD FROM OWNER AND MAKER JOSH CHRISTENSEN
Simply put, my family loves to host and entertain. We love any opportunity to gather with family and friends, share stories, laugh so hard we cry, and make lasting memories. As a woodworker for over 15 years, I’ve always tried to create things that would enhance these experiences while also being beautiful and functional. So when I started J. Wilder Design Company, I wanted to inject some some of this energy into our line of products, which is how “The Original Maggie Board” was born. Our products reflect the vibrancy of our relationships in their bold colors and patterns, while also offering practical and fun, multifunctional solutions for those who love to entertain as much as we do. After all, these aren’t your average cutting boards.
We are committed to helping make a difference in our community and beyond by giving back more than we take. That’s why we’re thrilled to share that we’re partnering with One Tree Planted to plant a tree for every item sold. Trees clean our air and water, create habitats for biodiversity, contribute to our health and wellbeing, and create jobs for social impact. We’re honored to have reforestation through One Tree Planted as an integral part of our business model.
Additionally, we take special care to ensure that we only source our materials from FSC (Forestry Stewardship Council) certified suppliers.
