This beautiful cutting board is manufactured from the finest northern-white species of hard rock maple. Its oval shape fit perfectly in the corner of a countertop, giving you extra counter space. The board features metal clips that fit under standard counters to hold the board in place as well as a juice groove to catch juices from cutting and carving. Maple wood is naturally anti-bacterial and won't harbor any bacteria. The Boos cream finish creates a protective layer that prevents food and moisture from damaging the wood board. Make sure to reapply cream or oil when the board becomes dry or lighter in color. To ensure the life of the cutting board, wipe with mild soap, water, and damp cloth to clean.
