This live edge Black Walnut Charcuterie Board measures approximately 8-9 inches wide by 18 inches long and about 7/8 inch thick. This piece exhibits the beautiful color and grain that walnut is famous for. Black Walnut with its rich, dark brown, close-grained wood makes this tree one of the most valuable of our hardwoods. The wood is generally straight-grained, but sometimes with wavy or curly grain that produces an attractive and decorative figure. The wood develops a rich patina that grows more lustrous with age. The board features black leather strap handles and rubber feet to protect your table surfaces. Natural cracks & voids have been filled with black epoxy to prevent food from being trapped. Coats of oil based finish are applied to bring out the depth and figure of the wood and since this is a serving board rather than a cutting board, I have applied 4 coats of varnish to further accent the figure and to provide a durable top coat. To clean, hand wash with water or mild detergent. Thoroughly rinse with water and hand dry. Never submerge your wooden kitchen items in dish water.
