End Grain Cutting Board*
TEXAS MESQUITE WOOD END GRAIN CUTTING BOARD
This is what the pros use! Considered by many to be the best style of wooden cutting board made. My end grain boards are handcrafted out of Texas Mesquite Wood, which is also considered by many to be the ultimate choice in hardwoods for making cutting boards, and, besides getting the finest quality wood, with my boards, you get the added benefit of "artistic beauty" brought out through my use of turquoise inlay. Like the end grain style & the premiere quality Mesquite Wood, the turquoise used is also considered to be one of the finest. I only use "Sleeping Beauty Turquoise" a gemstone synonymous with beauty & quality. PLEASE NOTE: The turquoise inlay will not dull your blade.
