End grain cutting boards are bulky and heavy and as a result they are normally left on the counter top. At Veteran Furniture, we believe if you have your end grain cutting board on your counter top, why not make it a show piece instead of an eye sore. All of our cutting board are designed to be counter top art. Like art, they are meant to help your home resemble the things that matter the most to you. The comment we get the most is: "That looks beautiful, I am not cutting on that!" That is why we suggest that you cut on the back side and use the decorative side when not in use.
