This is an end grain black walnut butcher block cutting board.
In my experience, black walnut is the most popular wood species. Black walnut's rich brown color and strength puts the wood in a class by itself.
ABOUT END GRAIN CONSTRUCTION
Professional chefs prefer end grain cutting boards, as they are the highest quality. Gentler on your knives, they remain in fantastic condition as long as they are well-cared for -- as outlined in the easy-care instructions I provide. End grain boards can become treasured heirlooms from one generation's family cook to the next.
ABOUT CUTTING BOARD FINISHING PROCESS
Each board goes through a five day oiling/finishing process. The oil that is used is allowed to penetrate 24 hours at a time. This ensures a longer lasting finish and allowed the oil to seep deeper into the wood rather than just sitting on the top. The oil is a food safe, contains no solvents, and is no toxic.
ABOUT CUSTOM ENGRAVING YOUR BOARD
If you want your board custom engraved, I am glad to do that although there is an additional fee. The image is carved out of the wood and filled with a colored epoxy. If you choose to have an image incorporated into the board, select the option at checkout. I will promptly message you to work out the details and colored epoxy filling options.
Because each board is handmade, orders will vary slightly in wood grain pattern and size; dimensions are accurate to within 1/4“.
