Sustainable Wood Boards
In addition to their exceptional quality, Fab Slabs is committed to environmentally friendly production of their kitchenware. They participate in planting and caring for native trees and other revegetation projects, and are active members of Land for Wildlife. Rather than using native trees for their cutting and chopping boards, they source salvaged Camphor Laurel logs, which are milled, dried, and turned into solid timber slabs that are both stylish and ethical. Camphor Laurels are considered an alien species in Australia, and there are programs in place to remove and replace them with native trees. By using salvaged materials, Fab Slabs prevents these logs from being wasted.
Beautiful Wood Boards
Not only are Fab Slabs' cutting boards unique works of art, but they also create the ideal surface for food preparation and can be used as impressive presentation pieces for cheese and other appetizers. They are suitable for everyday use and are an essential item for any kitchen. Each board is produced with a unique grain, color, and character, making it an ideal gift for any occasion. Fab Slabs also offers bulk orders to cafes, butchers, restaurants, fruit and vegetable outlets, and gourmet delis. Investing in their kitchenware not only benefits your everyday needs, but also contributes to the economy and environment.
Wood Board Care
To care for your Fab Slab cutting board, simply wash it with hot soapy water after each use, then dry it and store it away. When it appears dry, lightly oil it with an edible oil such as grapeseed oil. However, there are things to avoid: don't put it in the dishwasher, leave it in the sun, or soak it in water. Additionally, there is no need to rub salt or lemon into the board. Fab Slabs boards are naturally antibacterial and do not require salt or lemon to kill germs.
Australian Family Owned
Fab Slabs is a family-owned and operated business that takes pride in producing products that are 100% Australian made. All cutting boards, or chopping boards, are milled, kiln dried, and manufactured on the Sunshine Coast, which is approximately one hour north of Brisbane. This level of involvement ensures that every Fab Slabs product is made with care and attention to detail. The commitment to producing high-quality, locally-made products is at the heart of Fab Slabs, making them a trusted and reliable source for cutting boards in Australia.
Fab Slabs takes pride in crafting cutting-edge and stylish wooden camphor laurel cutting boards and grazing platters. The company is renowned for producing top-quality timber cutting and chopping boards that are not only aesthetically pleasing but also built to last, retaining their pristine condition even after prolonged use. Fab Slabs™'s secret lies in their use of Camphor Laurel timber, an introduced species to Australia, known for its exceptional durability and tight grain. The end result is a stunning and functional cutting board that is sure to elevate any kitchen or dining table.
Wood Board Production
At Fab Slabs, we utilize state-of-the-art solar kilns to kiln dry our own timber, which can accommodate around 7500 boards simultaneously. This drying process is vital in maintaining the stability of the timber, preventing issues such as cracking, warping, twisting, cupping, and mold growth. By using kiln-dried timber, we can ensure that our cutting boards are crafted from a single slab, guaranteeing the stability of the finished product. Unlike other manufacturers, Fab Slabs does not use multiple pieces of laminated timber to create our cutting boards, instead relying on the quality of our kiln-dried Camphor Laurel.
