This, paired with its self healing qualities makes it ideal for cutting boards as it can withstand daily use, potential fall or water damage, and even repair knife scores made by cutting on it repeatedly.
The benefit of maple’s self healing properties comes into play with its longevity as a material and its ability to eliminate the chance of foodborne illness, rancid smelling cutting boards, and food contamination by trapped food particles in the grooves.
Maple is a very bright and clean wood that has tremendous strength as a cutting board. It will remain stable and not tint with use.
