I include a free black metal easel with every one of our cutting boards. The metal easel serves two purposes:\n\n1. It allows the cutting board someplace to rest on when not in use. The easel with the board on it will clear the space between the countertop and the bottom of your cabinets. This results in less countertop footprint and allows easier access than if the board were stored in a cabinet. \n2. Much as a piece of art, I want you to prominently display your Chopping Blox cutting board. I believe that the design and appearance will be so attractive that you won't want to hide it in the cupboard. \nI hope that you will try one of our Chopping Blox cutting boards with a free decorative metal easel.
