If you like to cook and like working with natural wood cutting boards you will love this board. The size, construction of different beautiful color woods put together only enhances any kitchen. It is a solid 1.25' thick and will take heavy duty chopping. Our organization feeds forty or more men in a sitting and this board gets plenty of use. It is reversible and easy to maintain with regular applications of Butcher Block Oil. Look for years of use, great product.
This cutting board is what it's represented to be. It's big and sturdy and actually very pretty. I didn't realize how puny and limited my old one was until I got this. It's so roomy. You can chop up lots of vegetables and arrange them in little piles waiting their turns to be used. It is not TOO heavy. It's just sturdy. I'm not particularly strong or musclebound and have no trouble moving it around. I really love Overstock.com. Especially on free shipping days!
Unlike the other reviewer, I was hoping for a big wooden surface that wouldn't slide around when I was working on it. This thing is beautiful! I oiled it this morning and it's good to go for a long time. The cutting board I've been using for eons never did lie completely flat, and now that it's been washed and dried a million times, it's dished and ratty looking. My gorgeous new one is much thicker, much flatter and much heavier than the old one, and will be terrific for rolling out bread, too. It makes my kitchen look like a pro lives here. It came quickly (during our ice storm, in fact) and there were no problems whatsoever with this order. Thanx a million, Overstock.com!
Great value. We've been looking for a wooden cutting board for months but couldn't justify spending $100+. This is just as good quality as the more expensive ones for about 1/2 the price.

I got this board instead of buying a full butcher block counter which was too rich for my budget. I'm glad I did since the board is gorgeous and it really stands out on the inexpensive laminate counter I purchased. And on top of it, I am thrilled to know that it was made in the US. Very nice indeed. Well worth the $.
Not for whimps! This board is substancial and heavy! Don't buy if you can't fit it in your sink to clean, (I have a farmhouse style sink and that make it easy to clean)

I LOVE this board!!! It is a little bit grainy at first but once you oil it one or tow times with mineral oil it is perfect!!! It's big enough to do anything, but small enough to fit on a counter with a can opener and knife block behind it. Beautiful colering
This cutting board is HUGE. Yes, I wanted large one, but WOW! It's heavy, beautifully oiled, and has a great surface. I'm almost afraid to unwrap it! I did a bit of research about whether to get wood or another style of cutting board and decided on wood (renewable, bacteria die because there's nothing to feed on, etc). Now I have to decide if this goes into a cupboard or out on the counter. It's so pretty!
We recently attended a culinary institute where cutting was done on very large boards, My husband wanted to be able to cut onions, garlic and other veggies without the pieces falling off. This board fit the wish...it is large, heavy, and well-constructed. The only down side is finding a spot to store it because of its size...and a large sink is helpful when washing it.
