When I cut into this one I was impressed by the pattern. It is English Walnut and Koa backing.
This is a big chopping block.

wow.. very nice! what kind of finish do you use for chopping boards?? I am assuming it has to be something non-toxic (of course don’t want grandma to turn green) and also long lasting… it is a beauty.
