This unique piece is made from Hickory wood which is considered an extremely durable wood, thought to be able to withstand nearly anything. The board is accented with blue epoxy and has leather handles. Both sides of the board are finished with a Food-safe Hardwax-oil wood finish that is extremely hard wearing and durable. This tough finish is water repellent and resistant to wine, beer, cola, coffee, tea, fruit juices, milk and dirt. The charcuterie board also features a “live edge” where the handles are attached, which means the natural edge of the wood has been preserved and incorporated into the design of the piece.
