Looking for a gift that makes an impression or a treat for yourself perhaps? Then look no further than this cutting board! Guaranteed to make you the talk of the town! (or at least in your own kitchen)

I've made many cutting boards and this design is my favorite. It's also the most difficult to make and this is my last large cutting board that I plan on making. It's my favorite as well. I used some hard maple with the dark heartwood present to add visual interest and draw the eye through the center of the board.

Since most of my boards end-up being kitchen accent pieces (people don't seem to want to put knives to them) I've taken the finishing to a level well beyond what one would normally do for a cutting board in case you choose this option. Look around Etsy for cutting boards and you'll find many common, square patterns, but what you won't find is another design like this! The angled cuts make for a challenging and labor intensive build.

Put into use as a cutting board, feel confident that this board will serve you well. Being an end-grain cutting board, just like a butcher block, this board is much kinder on your knives than long-grain cutting boards due to the nature of wood fibers. A knife across a long-grain cutting board will sever fibers. End-grain, on the other hand, allows the knife to penetrate slightly without as much damage to the board or wear to your knives. End-grain boards essentially have a self-healing property as the fibers will attempt to rebound and close after a knife edge has been drawn across the surface.

This board will last a lifetime with proper care. Simply wash with soap and warm water and set the board aside to dry. As the board wears from use the surface can be renewed by wiping with mineral oil. (care instructions will ship with the board).

*Please note that I no longer make cutting boards as all my efforts are focused on making keepsake boxes, exclusively. This board and two others I have on hand will be the end of this line. *
