Products from Vermont are probably some of the most iconic to anyone looking for that special hand made item from Vermont. This Live Edge Spalted Maple board is comprised of 2 solid pieces that have been joined to make a single, substantial cutting board. Don' let the rustic look fool you. The spalted grain in this board is very unique with intricate spalted markings. It really is one of a kind. In addition, one surface has been finished with multiple applications of quality hard Tung oil finish with sanding between coats to insure a very smooth surface. Flip the board over onto the other side and there is a super high gloss finish that was added in order to accent the beauty and brilliance of the wood grain as well as enabling this very handsome board to be displayed proudly when not in use.
