I picked up a fantastic 2nd hand (3rd hand, maybe?) 30" x 24" maple cutting board. The back of the board has a back-splash kind of thing on the back (still maple) and so is a few inches taller than the rest of the board. That part is about 2 1/2" wide and 5" tall. It has two parallel slots running the length across the back. They are both only about 2 1'2" deep, so no on being knife storage. only 1/16" wide, so no cookbook holder either....

Anyone know what the purpose of those slots might be?
