Not sure of the design but I would strongly recommend against leaving it live edge unless you completely remove the bark and clean the edges with drawknife/chisels so they are crevice free, finish with mineral oil.

An additional concern would be washing an cleaning the board after use. A good hard polyurethane varnish should be used to prevent the board from warping or twisting. At any rate, you wouldn’t want to aggressively wash it, with soap and water.

Have your say...
