Advice on chopping boards
Hi all, I have made a couple of chopping boards out of solid oak for family and wondered whether it would have been cheaper to buy (but where is the fun in that).
In my search I found the vast majority of boards are made of ripped pieces of oak, butted together, rather than one solid piece.
My question is, is this a cosmetic thing to do, a cheaper or even more expensive way, or is it for hygiene reasons?
I can't imagine it would prolong the life of the board more than a solid piece, as neither are using the end grain (see end grain boards)
Any opinions or feedback welcome. Have a great day.
