Description: We always have some bread or cake around which invariably leads to crumbs all over the counter. This simple mod really improves the board ability to contain the crumbs and make clean-up a snap.
These boards came as a set and were unfinished. I used my router table to cut the 1/2 inch channels with 1/2 inch spacing. I sanded the board to smooth the edges and surface. Lastly, I applied food safe oil to the boards to help prevent them from absorbing undesireable things.
