End-Grain Butcher Block Cutting Board

Our Price: $5.95

Product Code: GR-00870A


From the earliest times when wooden butcher blocks were little more than slabs of tree trunk, end grain provided a superior cutting surface. Why? Because the grain makes for a tough, durable face that self-heals, closing up when cut by a knife. These days you can make your own butcher block for projects ranging from cutting boards to countertops with this simple technique.
