 Among the most popular wooden chopping board: the bamboo board and the beech cutting board.

The beech wooden cutting boards are probably the most used in domestic kitchens.

In addition, you can easily erase the knife grooves by lightly sanding your board. The only drawback of beech cutting board: its porosity!
