This beautiful board is designed to ensure a perfectly stable work surface - no matter how vigorously you're chopping. A wooden lip on either side of the board, attached with handsome dowels, anchors the piece securely on your countertop. One side of the board has a well to collect tasty meat juices. Crafted in the USA from sustainably harvested North American walnut. Edge-grain construction is gentle on knives - and stands up to years of slicing and chopping. Use the grooved side of the board for carving and the flat side for chopping. The handsome board is ideal for serving buffet-style foods from your countertop. Made by John Boos & Co., the leading manufacturer of butcher blocks and respected the commercial cooking industry since 1887.
