Even the thinnest strips are high quality hardwood. Though the specifics of this process are to be kept secret, here is a brief overview of what goes into each My Covey Home Cutting Board. In between the build, glue, sand, finishing stages, each cutting board go through various rigorous stress tests. These stress tests will ensure an incredibly strong board that will last years.
