Backgammon Inspired Cutting Board
This hand-made end-grain cutting board was inspired by the pattern on a backgammon board. The board is made of walnut and hard-maple, put together with FDA approved, water-proof glue, and treated with a mixture of mineral oil and beeswax.
End-grain cutting boards like this one are very durable and will not dull your knife edges like some other types of cutting boards. Also, while some people worry that wooden cutting boards are not as safe from bacteria as glass or plastic, there have been studies done that actually show that wooden boards have antibacterial properties (seriously...ask The Internets). I don't know if those studies are 100% accurate, but I do know that people have been using wooden cutting boards a lot longer than plastic, and have not all died of food-borne illness, so I figure it's probably ok (though I won't hold it against you if you decided to cut poultry on a separate board).
I'll include a set of care instructions with any cutting board that I sell.
This board is approximately 18 X 12 X 1.5"
