This end grain cutting board is 12.5" diameter and 6" thick. It will take the hardest pounding and provide a lifetime of great service. End grain mesquite is arguably the finest wood for a cutting board. It is much more durable than oak or maple and the end grain cut is very easy on your knives. This board is kiln dried and is banded with two hand forged stainless steel hoops that are driven on a 10 degree taper. This will prevent the board from splitting, even with severe use.
