This End Grain Cutting Board is crafted with Goncalo Alves and Hard Maple. It measures 17 3/4” L x 14 1/2” W x 1 3/4” D.
Prized for its beauty, harvested for its durability. Goncalo Alves is known at least as commonly by its popular nickname, “Tigerwood” — given for its orange-hued primary color, and the dark striped (black or dark brown) which often decorates its surface. Its great durability, impressive strength, stiffness and hardness, generally cooperative working properties, large tree sizes — which yield sizable boards — and regular supply, are factors which contribute to making Goncalo Alves a very popular choice among Central & South American woods made available to domestic markets in the US.
Grains can be wavy, interlocked or sometimes straight; its texture is fine, with a good natural luster.
