NOTE: THIS ITEM IS CURRENTLY OUT OF STOCK. IF YOU ARE INTERESTED IN HAVING ME CUSTOM-MAKE YOU A BLOCK LIKE THIS ONE, PLEASE CONTACT ME, AND WE CAN DISCUSS DETAILS AND ESTIMATED COMPLETION TIMES. Pure and simple, a fusion of art, beauty, and function for your kitchen.... This is a parallel sectioned, face grained, and solid, handpicked, hardwood butcher block with figured and burl Missouri walnut. It is designed in an art deco, assymetric, 'cross section' curved design. This block measures 16 1/2 inches long x 11 3/4 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 and corners are rounded off, and the block comes with sturdy, high quality rubber feet underneath (removable) and designed for kitchen countertop use. There is no stain, finish, or toxic materials used in it's construction, but simply raw exotic hardwood coated with food-safe butcher block oil. This block is designed and crafted by myself with furniture-grade quality, but is built with the intention to be used consistently 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 or serving style.
