This charcuterie board features a gently dipping stratified sequence of cherry, maple, purpleheart, padauk, Brazilian cherry, yellow heart, and beech. These strata are first cut by a fault and then a dike of black walnut. The dike has contact metamorphic zones of beautiful red jarrah veneer along its margins. Perfect for serving appetizers for small to moderate size groups, this large board measures 9 1/2 x 21 inches and is a solid 3/4 inch thick. All surfaces received 8 coats of Howards(TM) butcher block conditioner, which is food safe and contains a combination of pure USP grade mineral oil, beeswax, and carnauba wax. To maintain the cutting surface, reapply a light coat of mineral oil once a week for 2 months, then once a month or as needed. Note: this can be washed with soapy water and be dried immediately, but should not be allowed to soak in water.
