This cutting 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 normal fault and then a dike of black walnut. The dike has contact metamorphic zones of beautiful red jarrah veneer along its margins. The faulted and intruded sequence is then cut by another normal fault. This large board measures 11 7/8 x 16 inches. The board is 1 3/8 inches thick and weighs just a touch under 7 lbs. The underside features finger grooves to help pickup & nonslip rubber feet to keep the board from sitting in water on the countertop. All surfaces received 8 coats of mineral oil. 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.
