Where are the boards produced?

All boards are designed, produced and finished in beautiful British Columbia, Canada.

What are the boards made from?

We chose to make our boards from FSC certified rapidly renewable bamboo.  Not only is it as strong as hardwood, it is a sustainable and environmentally friendly resource. 

What oil do you use to finish your boards?

We use Balmbu, our handmade blend of natural oils, beeswax and bamboo extract. It is all natural, food safe and contains no peanut oil.

How should I care for my board?

Our boards are easy to care for.  Simply hand-wash with a mild detergent and dry. Please keep it away from the dishwasher.  

Applying oil to your board regularly will make sure it lasts for generations.  We suggest Balmbu, our own handmade balm which is foodsafe and doesn't contain peanut oil.

How long do I need to wait until my board is ready?

We currently need a one week production time to make your custom board, although we are trying to reduce that.  We like to think that good things come to those who wait. 

When your board is ready we will ship it to you via Canada Post.

How much are shipping costs?

Like you, we don’t like wondering about shipping costs so we charge a flat fee of $16 per board for anywhere in Canada.  

How are items shipped?

We currently ship using Canada Post.

How will I know when my item is sent out?

When your order is sent out we will send you an email so you know it's on its way.

What if my board is damaged during delivery?

We know that there is nothing worse than receiving something damaged which is why we do our best to make sure your board is well protected.  If by chance your board does arrive damaged please get in touch immediately by sending an email to leah@lovemylocal.ca.
