Toledo, Ohio (PRWEB) December 16, 2014
For some time, custom-fitted cutting boards have been offered on several MR Directstainless steel sinks. However, the relatively new, but ever-increasing in popularity, 3218 collection was introduced without this option. Today, MR Direct is pleased to announce that cutting boards in both naturally light-colored rubberwood, and deep mahogany-like sapele wood, are now available for all four models in the 3218 ensemble.
The light-color, Natural, board is made of rubberwood from the latex-producing tree of the same name, but it is not at all pliable as its name might suggest. It has a light complexion, similar to pine, and a grain similar to white oak. Being a natural hardwood, it makes a very durable cutting surface which rarely warps or cracks.
The dark-colored, Sapele, board is made of wood from the sapele tree, a cousin to mahogany with whom it shares many properties. Sapele has a finer texture than mahogany and is slightly darker in appearance, but it too is a strong hardwood which makes it a logical and beautiful choice as a cutting board.
Both of these boards have attractive, somewhat delicate, grain patterns; and even more importantly they are both naturally-resistant to moisture, molds, and fungus. Each cutting board is custom-fitted to the individual basin, with its underside edge trimmed back so it can tuck securely into the sink top. Because it rests on the sink or counter edges, it functions best with a 3/8" positive-reveal, or flush-cut installation. It will not fit a sink which is installed with a negative-reveal.
Each cutting board has a groove along its top perimeter to channel away any runoff fluids. It is lightweight, easy to handle, and saves valuable countertop space by fitting directly over the sink. All are custom designed to fit either of the equally-sized halves of the 3218A, either of the small or large bowls of the 3218B, and one or both halves of the full 3218C model. Natural or Sapele cutting boards can be purchased individually, in matching pairs, or mixed.
