This butcher block is approximately 2" thick, 11"x12", and weighs just over 6 lbs. Made of red oak and paduak. No dyes or stains are used. These are natural colours.
I really enjoy the subway tile pattern. It's classic and goes with any decor. As far as being a block, it has a really nice "cut" to it. All the oak is endgrain. Like many I make, this one is hard enough to last decades but soft enough to not dull your blades (glass, bamboo, and other super hard woods will dull your blade).
Real wood is naturally resistant to bacteria. Just "grease" it up from time to time to make sure it doesn't dry out. For stains or odours cut a lemon in half, sprinkle with coarse salt and use it like a scrubby. Stains and odours gone!
Every board is sent out with a container of butcher block wax to help you maintain it.
Please ask, if your country isn't listed in the shipping areas. I'll be happy to figure it out for you!
*** I can only submit one shipping cost per country. The costs listed are for the far eastern/deep southern states and eastern Canada. If you live in the central/western states or are west of Ontario just let me know what state you're in or your postal code and I'll check to see if the costs can be lowered because you're closer. Thank you!!***
