This super thick cutting board is hewn from the end grain of solid Cherry, Walnut, with the center being Oak. The “ebonized” Cherry legs provide a slight ascent, with a slight taper, surrounded by Spalted Maple with a arch on center. The thickness of the board itself is 1.5”, with the legs added the overall height is 2.25”. These dimensions are easy on a space saving kitchen ad durable enough to withstand many years of culinary use. The end grain is easy on your cutlery as the fibers separate for the passing blade, and self healing by closing back together. This peice is finished in FDA approved Butch Block Oil by General Finishes.
