Custom Hard Maple/Oak Slide Out Cutting Board

This custom cutting board was created to replace the old worn out one  and is on its way to Washington State to its new home.

It slides into the counter top for storage and has fingers pulls on each side opposite ends so it can be flipped and used both ways.  It can also be pulled out for use on the counter or somewhere else.

The center portion is made using hard maple with oak being used for the breadboard ends.  Breadboard ends help keep the board flat and add color.

The measurements are: 17 3/4" wide x 24 1/2" long, and 3/4" thick.  Once completed a food grade mineral oil is applied to preserve the wood.
