This solid edge grain maple cutting board features numerous stripes of walnut, paduak, and bloodwood hardwood inlay. Each stripe begins at the bottom and follows its own trajectory upward, weaving and intersecting as it attempts to grow. Viewed collectively, the board has huge chaotic energy. Viewed individually, each strand has its own path with its own story to tell.
This cutting board is designed to be fully reversible, with a display/serve side on the top and a work side on the bottom. Finger grooves have been cut in the edges to make for easier pick-up and carrying. Feet can be installed on the bottom if you request them. There’s still enough surface area to chop on the bottom, even with feet installed. A juice groove can also be cut on the bottom, if desired.
At 16” X 22” X 1 3/4”, this cutting board is solid without being excessively heavy. The maple strips are uniformly quartersawn, giving a smooth, even flow to the grain pattern of the cutting board.
