One of my new favorites
Review by  jumbojonesy from Tehachapi, Ca
Absolutely love this for face grain cutting boards even though you'll be sharpening your knives more often. Looks great and is a stand out when finished. All of my pieces had great spotting.

Just ok, only a couple of the boards had actual spotting
Review by  Michael B from Novato
Showed up intact and no dents or deformations. However only 2 of the boards I ordered had actual spotting.
