Shoot, I’m such a sucker for geometric anything. Simply facet the edges of an American Maple wood board and I’m already contemplating plonking down a credit card, no matter how many cutting boards already reside in my kitchen cabinets. Now, the faceted edges do make the board easier to pick up (on one side), so it is actually a functional feature as well as a stylistic choice.
