Each cutting board is made mostly from the cut off pieces when cutting out straight grain axe handles, so the wood doesn’t go to waste! These are made to order so expect around a 1-4 week turnaround before receiving your end grain cutting board. The reasons for using a “butcher block” or end grain style cutting board are: its durability, keeps your knives sharper, and the uniqueness it will add to your kitchen or home. Two excellent features are: the cutting board is reversible and by cutting into the end grain the wood will actually heal itself! Available in different sizes and wood combinations so you can get the right one you want. These one of a kind cutting boards make a great gift to give to someone that will last them a lifetime.
