John Mcleod Maple End-Grain Board with Walnut Border

This cutting board contrasts the blonde beauty of yellow birch with a rich black walnut border for a distinctive look you'll want to bring out of the kitchen for serving. The experts at John McLeod Ltd. of Vermont handcraft each one using sustainably harvested North American woods. Crafted from New England yellow birch with American black walnut perimeter. Laminated end-grain construction provides exceptional strength and durability. Natural oil finish protects and highlights the wood's beauty. Generously sized for heavy-duty prep work as well as serving a spread of appetizers or cheeses. Clear acrylic nonskid feet prevent board from slipping.

After a month of very light use this board has split severely. I bought a John Mcleod for my mother years ago, and it received heavy use. It did split but it took a few years of hard use. It gets two stars because it looks good. Looks are tied for first on my priority list with function. This one isn't proving long term function.
Cons: Quality

How awful!
To make sure your wooden boards last a very long time, make sure to:
(1) wipe clean with a damp cloth or paper towel after every use,
(2) do not completely submerge the board in water,
(3) keep the board away from very cold or very hot areas,
(4) and oil it regularly with food safe mineral oil.
Hope this helps!
