This utility cutting board is made of 100% bamboo. Bamboo is considered a green alternative to wood because it is actually a grass that grows to maturity in 5 years. The grass does not need to be replanted, irrigated or fertilized in order to make it grow, making it a highly renewable resource. We love it because it acts like a true hardwood that is harder than rock maple but easier to work with.
The bamboo carving board with groove measures 18" x 12.5" and is 3/8 inch thick. The groove on this board is 1/2 inch inside of the outer edge, is 1/2 inch wide and recessed in 3/16 of an inch. We can laser engrave on bamboo for an excellent contrast. Let us know if you would like us to personalize this for you.
This carving board is not dishwasher safe. You can use any mineral oil on the board to keep it in the same condition that it is today and it will remain food safe.
