Maybe a little different take on the cutting board here because this one comes with a base. The idea here is that if you’re cutting chicken or meat, until you clean the surface off thoroughly, you are sort of stuck. With the base, you can wipe off the surface then flip the board over and have a new surface to work from…or so the idea goes.

Board is made from wenge, purpleheart, maple, ash, walnut and mahogany and is 13×19x2”. Base is walnut with curly maple splines. Base has rubber feet and a rubber gasket for the cutting board to rest on.

What do you think of this concept?

Looks like a much better approach to catching drippings.
That and a great looking execution of the idea!!!

Awesome idea, but I would NEVER cut meat on wood unless I dedicated one side to fruits/ veggies and the other side for meat. Scrub the meat side rigorously and vigorously with salt and lemon juice. It is a cool idea, though.

Hey Josh, check out this link from the University of California regarding the safety of wooden boards:

Great looking cutting board.

Great article JADobson. It kind of goes against the grain of what the typical advice is (that a wood cutting board is bad and a plastic one is good).

Great looking cutting board, but I would have to agree with josh about dedicating one side to meat and one side to fruits/veggies.

Not so innovative when others beat you to it years ago. Thanks for the responses, everyone!
