The End Grain Carving Board is built to handle everything from turkeys and large roasts to multiple quantities of steak and fish and vegetables. It is a serious cutting surface in the kitchen and an impressive serving platter for holidays or special occasions. It has a 1-1/4” wide sloped juice channel with an easy pour spillway. It has comfort grip handles for easy lifting and carrying. It has reversible top and bottom cutting and serving surfaces. It is handcrafted in Louisville, KY, USA with premium grade walnut and maple hardwood from NHLA suppliers. It comes pre-finished with 100% natural, food-safe mineral oil and wax. The end grain composition ensures maximum durability and minimal knife blade wear. The term “end grain” refers to the surface produced from a cross section of the tree’s trunk, as opposed to “face grain” which is wood cut lengthwise. End grain is not only cherished for its rich and unique visual character, but also its superior durability. It’s highly resistant to wear and also easier on knife blades and self-healing, as the cut fibers tend to reclose over time.
