I do think this is a beautiful cutting board with pretty round feet (not shown in the photo but make this a cutting board you could leave on your counter, it's so pretty); however, in the groove where juices will accumulate were a lot of rough, unsanded areas. Considering the full price quoted (of course I didn't pay full price), I think these should have been smooth like the rest of the board. It will make washing that groove out a little tricky. I would buy it again, though. I really got a great sale price, plus coupons, plus Thanks for Sharing 10% back, plus Plenti Points. So I received a good deal!
