Checkerboard Butcher Block

Kristen from Lipstick and Sawdust made this gorgeous checkerboard butcher block from maple and oak as a Christmas gift. The hardwood board is finished with a special butcher block oil so it’s completely food safe. It turned out so beautifully, Kristen ended up making two more!

Kristen was inspired by the End Grain Board from Crate & Barrel.
