This beauty is made using Vermont's finest Bird's Eye Maple surrounded on either side by Black Walnut. The contrast between the Walnut and the Maple highlights the figured "Bird's Eyes" in the Maple. Bird's Eye Maple is thought to be a genetic deformity creating some fabulous wood. It usually appears about once in every 500 Maple trees. It measures approximately 7" x 11" x 1" and the Bird's Eye Maple stripe in the middle varies. This board rests on Brown rubber feet attached with stainless steel screws and comes with a stainless steel cheese knife.
