The rich and ornate look to this Cutting Board was created intentionally by introducing 2 lush, rich looking hardwoods, combined by laminating the pieces in an array to accent each others spectacular rich wood grains. This eye appealing cutting board would certainly add accent to any kitchen. Each piece of hardwood used was individually planed, shaped and assembled by hand. The board has been hand sanded to a very smooth finish and then sealed using a food grade mineral oil blend. When the oil has dried to the touch, it is hand rubbed with a single application of Wayne's Wood Originals own "Wood Vigor" giving the grain of the wood that extraordinary presence.
