This board is a walnut, paduk, and maple end grain. End grain boards are easier on your knives than edge grain, and hide cut marks a little better because you are cutting with the grain and not across it.
This board is made with natural woods and sealed with all natural and food grade oils and waxes. No stains or varnishes are ever used or applied to any of our products. The color you see is the natural beauty of the wood. For more information on caring for wooden cutting boards please read the Care and Maintenance section on this site.
