This end grain zebrawood board, again very simple and elegant. The pattern forms candle points that echo and spread – frozen in time. Or better yet, you can try to describe yourself! It is finished with hot beeswax with a small amount of mineral oil added, and then is buffed smooth, which captures a golden tone in the smooth surface. The beeswax and mineral oil are tasteless and non-toxic. Mineral oil alone is fine for many types of wood, but tends to darken zebrawood more than I like.
This board has “handles” built in all around, like all my cutting boards. It will stand on it’s side or ends, which makes it easier to store and helps it to dry after being cleaned, and both surfaces can be used for cutting.
