North American Cherry Edge Grain Cutting Board with Rubber Feet and Juice Groove
Cutting Boards (aka long grain or face grain cutting boards) – Primarily used for food preparation. These boards are a value over the more expensive butcher block though many people refer to thicker examples of this type of board as a butcher block. The grain of the wood moves in a lengthwise pattern creating a beautiful effect. This is the most common type of wood cutting board used in the world. This type of cutting board can be resurfaced whenever necessary; though with proper care it is rarely needed.
My work versus the competition - Many competitors do not focus on the proper construction and longevity of cutting boards. They assume that they will be hung on the wall more as a decoration than a usable piece. As such, you will find most competitors using woods unsuitable to cutting boards such as pine and poplar. My cutting boards are all constructed of hardwoods higher than 950 on the Janka scale of hardness. Look at a cutting board made of pine and you will likely see indentations from simply being shuffled around. While all wood will indent, pine is simply too soft for any kind of daily use. In addition, many competitors use chemical based stains and finishes in their pieces. These finishes are not approved by the FDA to be food safe. The finishes used on my hand made cutting boards are FDA approved food safe and the final wax coatings are made in house using organic bee’s wax. The colors in my cutting boards are 100% natural and are not altered with any chemical stains, paints or dyes. Some use chalk paint to create artwork on their boards. This paint is not safe to ingest and, like all artificial chemicals, is especially dangerous for children and the elderly.
Given the nature of wood, color and grain will vary. The final dimensions of the cutting board may vary slightly.
Each cutting board is handcrafted when you order.
