When you donate these to a silent auction.. Do you put simple care instructions with them? If so.. what do they say..

Thanks all for the wonderful comments. The CB sold for $50. I always put a card with a list of the woods and the country they originated from. Also, Cutting Board Care and Maintenance card;

You have purchased a fine handcrafted cutting board, made from different hardwoods, and if taken care of, it will last you a very long time. The wood has been thoroughly sealed with "Butcher block sealer" (non toxic) and coated with a blend of mineral oil and beeswax.

You will need to apply a coat of mineral oil or butcher block conditioner about once a month.

To clean, just rinse with water and wipe off.

Do not put in the dishwasher!
