The End grain that forms the pattern on this board is almost horizontal across the board, so I call it the “Wavy Gravy” board. It’s all zebrawood, and finished with beeswax+mineral oil combination (mostly beeswax). There are actually 40 individual pieces of zebrawood in this board, sanded to a nice smooth finish. I love the patterns zebrawood end grain brings out! And of course, this board has built in handles to make it easy to pick up and carry, can be used on either side, and stands on the edges easily. And it’s a great size!
