I shopped all around for a carving board with a large well around the side and this was the best I could find at a very resonable price. The quality and functionality of the carving board left my husband and I very happy and it got a lot of use over the holidays. Easy to clean, looks nice, and catches all the juices from the carving with room to spare.
Had this cutting board been sanded better, its a little rough in spots, I would have give it 5 stars. A little sanding is no problem for me. Compared to similar boards elsewhere, this is less than half the price. Well worth every penny. Just be sure to oil it before you use it, and keep it oiled, should last a lifetime.
My husband is a great but messy cook. With the deep grooves around the board for catching meat juices, this cutting board is perfect to insure the spills stay on the board, not on my cabinets. It is a nice, heavy board;and it is excellent for pork loins, turkeys, any large meats.
I kept this because the size and design are great. But the wood is very rough. It feels like you could get a splinter. Truth be told, I have not gotten one. I am thinking of just sanding it a little to smooth it out. I would buy it again.
I have been searching for a good, sturdy, heavy wooden carving board with an indention to collect the run-off juices. I received all this plus the bonus that on one side of the board, there is a perfect indentation for the turkey to lay in, preventing sliding of the turkey while carving it. This board will last for generations. It is well made, heavy and the perfect size for large roasts and turkey. I highly recommend it.
Have been looking for a trencher board that had a channel deeper than a marble. When you are slicing a juicy turkey the last thing you want to have is the juices running all over the counter. Unfortunately the side meant to hold the roast/bird is the shallower trough, but the other side, meant for bbq, is deep and what I wanted. If you are vegetarian it makes a great press board for tofu.

Board was a gift for my brother who often carves large cuts of meat. He thought it was perfect for that purpose & was very pleased.

Big heavy cutting board - can't attest to how well it will hold up, but looks to be great quality for the money with a thick trench to hold juices in. Look forward to lots of good grilling which HOPEFULLY won't run all over the counter with the liquid reservoirs!!
