Connecticut state-shaped cutting board is made from a 100% rapidly renewable bamboo plywood and includes a gold HEART in the center of the state near Hartford (our State Capitol). It's also near out lil ole store, Vivid Hue Home. It's a great commemorative gift if someone you love has a fondness for our great state of CT.
Dimensions vary with the edges of the state borderlines. The Connecticut board is approximately: 8-_-inches x 16-1/2 inches and _ of an inch thick. The boards are finished like fine salad bowls, with an FDA-approved water based finish. Occasionally rubbing your board with mineral oil or olive oil will preserve it and give it a nice matte finish. The oil will also keep the bamboo from drying and cracking. We do not recommend submerging the board in water or putting it in the dishwasher. A quick wipe with a wet sponge is all the cleaning a well-maintained board needs.
Color and tone vary from board to board, due to the materials and process.
