If you like to cook, odds are you have a cutting board, so why not have one that looks good? Crafted with beautiful and durable hard maple, accented with padouk, cherry, and walnut laminations. Each one is hand made over the span of a few days, and no two are exactly alike. Why does this cost more than the Butcher Block? Believe it or not, there is a lot more work that goes into one of these beauties than your run of the mill butcher block.
