End Grain Cutting Boards are far superior to any other cutting surface. The two boards pictured are both created in the "Wavy Checkerboard" pattern, but many patterns are available. These two boards are created from the two most common contrasting woods used for end-grain cutting boards, solid maple and solid walnut. While the patterns on these boards are very beautiful, do not be mistaken - this is 100% American Hardwood - ready to be used in the kitchen. All features including pattern, species, and size, can be customized by you. These are built-to-order.
