This Butcher Block board made from live edge slices of Butternut mixed with thin hardwood strips of maple and Black cherry, all local hardwood from Vermont, is just dripping with richness in natural wood tones. A Vermont Made Butcher Block can certainly contribute to the personality and surroundings of your kitchen. All of the pieces to this Butcher Block are hand selected piece, local to Vermont. Unlike the butcher blocks and cutting boards you buy at the store, no two butcher block boards are the same. Every piece of wood used is individually planed, shaped and assembled by hand. The handcrafted board is sanded to a fine finish. The board is hand sanded again to a 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".
