Wood species doesn’t really matter much. Just go with whatever you like the look of. I wouldn’t use a softwood or something with super open grain like red oak. The board can soak through with red oak and just deposit juices to the counter below.

For the juice rim, use a router and an edge guide with a round groove bit. Something like 3/8”-1/2” works fine.

I’d add rubber feet secured with stainless screws, and cut hand holds in the sides with a cove router bit as well.
