Professional and home chefs alike prize this board for its extraordinary performance and unique natural beauty. Masterfully handcrafted in Nova Scotia from native larch wood, the board features traditional butcher-block end-grain construction that showcases the wood's bold natural patterns and ensures heirloom-quality strength. Crafted Eastern Canadian larch wood, sustainably grown and harvested on Cape Breton Island in Nova Scotia. Wood is kiln-dried and milled on site, then hand selected and matched by the master artisans who handcraft the board. Dense end-grain construction adds strength and resistance, and helps preserve knives' sharpness. Soft rubber feet keep the board stable during use and help keep the underside dry. Carefully matched for color and pattern, the wood ranges from brown to orange to beige within each board. Crafted and finished in a 30-step process, the board will retain its naturally unique beauty for generations. Made in Canada by Larch Wood, a small company of master artisans dedicated to producing exceptional products from native woods. A Williams-Sonoma exclusive.
