This extra large cutting board is an amazing centerpiece for anything from the farmhouse table to a wedding banquet. It features character-rich live edge hickory with beautiful shimmery grain figure and extensive bark inclusions. Strips of native black walnut, wild cherry, oak and rare sassafras wood grace the center of this board, and I inlayed contrasting circles of hardwoods as accents and to stabilize some of the small rustic cracks. Dovetail feet complete this cutting board with an innovative solution to the challenge of wood movement*.

This exquisite cutting board measures 16" x 30" at it's widest points (but would fit into a space 16" x 32"), and is about 7/8" thick without the feet. With the feet the total height is about 1 3/8 inches. The hickory used in this board is from a magnificent old tree that came down in a storm at a friend's place. All the wood was salvaged or upcycled, which is more labor intensive than purchasing new, but friendlier for the environment.

*An explanation of "wood movement": Changes in wood moisture content due to washing and drying and seasonal humidity changes cause wood to shrink and expand and sometimes warp. This sliding dovetail joint is designed to prevent warping while allowing for inevitable wood movement. The tapered black walnut feet are painstakingly pressure fitted (not glued), and secured with a single screw in the middle of the board. This allows the wood to shrink and expand freely without warping. Smaller or thicker cutting boards are less troubled by warping so we usually only employ this feature on larger boards.

This original piece, made by Espri Bender-Beauregard, is initialed and dated "EB 2011." Every item we create is unique, so what you are purchasing is exact items shown.

We include a gift-quality tag with care instructions with every cutting board.

• All wood we use comes from sustainable, natural, locally harvested sources, and/or is recycled (salvaged) from larger furniture making operations.
• We employ ecologically sound crafting practices.
• All pieces are polished to a high shine and finished with natural food grade olive oil.
• Engineered for strength and durability
• Wooden cutting boards are a more sanitary choice than plastic, and easier on your knives than glass.
