My Brazilian Cherry purchase
Love the Brazilian Cherry
I bought some of this and some maple to make a cutting board for a family member's birthday and I'm blown away by how beautiful the board is. The vibrant red of the cherry goes perfectly with the creamy white of the maple and the wood is dense enough that even without testing it out, I can tell it's going to survive years of knives running over it.
