Excellent size for the kitchen, not to overbearing or small, but make sure to have butcher block oil ready when you open it! It is recommended to seal it immediately after opening it. Mineral oil works as well and can be purchased at any pharmacy
I gave this chopping block to my sister for her birthday. It was a heavy-duty block that was well-made and beautiful. It was also larger than the one I have myself, making it great for recipes with a lot of prep work.
Bought this board for cutting meats. It is thick and heavy, and looks beautiful after applying proper amount of mineral oil.
However, after using it less than a year, several hairline cracks developed along the seams of the wood blocks. This board was always washed by hand and dried right away, but apparently the small blocks that make up this board reacts differently to the moisture in the air.
So disappointed that either I have to figure out how to fix the hairline cracks, or get a new board.
This is a very nice cutting board for the price. Needs to be oiled (I haven't opened the package completely yet.) It is not wobbly at all and has a very sturdy look to it. Cannot wait to get cutting (I need some knives first!)
It's exactly as described, beautiful. The block is a bit wobbly. The only concern I have is that I have to keep putting oil after each wash (like after cutting meat). It seems to require oil every other day. Maybe that's normal. This is my first nice cutting board.
