12 by 18 offers a little but more real-estate for slightly larger meal preps than the 12 by 16 can offer. This board features a mix of maple walnut and cherry in a "random" pattern which gives it a nice contrast between light and dark.
Many who have bought cutting boards use them as decoration or as cheese boards for entertainment. I build each cutting board to withstand the test of time and of use. They are built thick to combat warping and splitting. Each cutting board has feet on the bottom to prevent water from sitting on the bottom and to keep a nice air flow at all times.
I recommend picking up some butcher block oil. applying it monthly increases the longevity of the cutting board.
