This strong and durable chopping board is stunning and designed to be the center of attention at your next dinner party or holiday gathering. Clean up is a breeze, just use soap and water. Each board is treated with mineral oil to seal and protect it. We recommend that you oil your bamboo cutting board periodically, as needed, to maintain its excellent condition. Why Bamboo? A highly renewable, ECO-FRIENDLY natural resource, bamboo is growing in demand nationwide. A personalized bamboo cutting board is a gift you can feel good about giving! Bamboo absorbs very little moisture, does not shrink or swell and is actually harder than most hard woods, making it a SUPERIOR MATERIAL FOR CUTTING BOARDS. No two pieces of bamboo are the same, each piece will vary slightly in color and grain pattern. The laser engraving is a burning process and each piece of bamboo engraves differently. Please allow for color and depth variations. PERSONALIZE ONE SIDE OF THE BAMBOO CUTTING BOARD AND USE THE OTHER SIDE FOR FOOD PREPARATION!
