This board clearly states "Made in Vermont" "Vermont" is clearly burned into the center of this proud looking Butcher Block. And cutting boards, we all know, are an essential item in every kitchen. How about adding some additional character to the place where you prepare your food or entertain family and special guests. A Vermont Made Butcher Block can certainly contribute to the personality and ambiance of your kitchen. This Butcher Block is hand made from hand selected Maple, local to Vermont. No two butcher block boards are the same. Every piece of wood used is individually planed, shaped and assembled by hand. This particular board has a large thumb hole incorporated into the board design for easy maneuverability. The handcrafted board is sanded to a fine finish. The pyrography has all been hand burned. The board is then hand sanded again to a smoother 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".
