Beautiful cutting board composed of alternating pieces of END-GRAIN Texas Oak. The pieces were all carefully-picked and placed to offer a beautiful visual "tone-on-tone" appearance. This is a large and HEAVY board that will last many generations and provide lots of satisfaction. Hand-sanded to a silky, smooth touch, and protected with a Food-safe finish. There are "finger pulls" grooved into each end to make it easy to lift, move, or flip this solid piece. This board is lovely to look at it, and even nicer to use; you will want to keep it out on the counter (cut on one side and flip over to show off its magnificence on the other side). Comes with care instructions.
