NOTE: THIS EXACT BLOCK IS SOLD. IF YOU ARE INTERESTED IN HAVING A BLOCK LIKE IT MADE, CONTACT ME AND WE CAN ARRANGE TO MAKE ONE FOR YOU. START TO FINISH TIME IS ABOUT A WEEK TO TEN DAYS. This is a beautiful face grained, checkerboard designed, solid African Padaukwood butcher block. This block measures 14 inches long x 13 5/8 inches wide x 2 inches thick. The block has been sanded down to a semi-smooth 150 grit consistency which allows the block to be a bit more forgiving on cutlery, yet maintin the block's integrity under regular use. The edges/corners are rounded off, and the block comes with rubber feet on the bottom, which are removable, as it's designed for countertop use. There is no stain or toxic materials used in it's construction, but just raw wood coated with food safe butcher block oil. These blocks are designed and crafted by myself with furniture grade quality, but are also made to be used for generations. This is an absolutely gorgeous piece that will add beauty to your kitchen, and will also serve as a workhorse for food preparation.
