There is ample work space on this 10×12 work surface. Perform tasks and cut with a breeze on this walnut board. The 2” thickness that comes with all of our cutting boards and high-quality butcher blocks ensures that the board lasts for years to come and can be used daily without deteriorating or falling apart.  

We use the best selection of walnut to showcase the true nature of the beauty of this particular wood. Walnut wood is naturally lustrous and visually appealing but its color will actually lighten over time and the wood will strengthen further as well. This is beneficial for cutting boards specifically as it means that even with daily use and potential fall or water damage, the board will still remain in good condition and won’t warp, crack, chip, or dry out. 

On the Janka hardness scale, Walnut ranks 1,010 lbf or 1,010 Janka. With this said, it is harder than cherry wood but not quite as hard as maple wood. It’s strength is what makes it the only dark-brown domestic wood on the market to date. On top of its impeccable strength, walnut wood also self heals which is particularly valuable in kitchen settings.

With cheaper wood and plastic cutting boards, deep grooves made in these boards with chef’s knives can trap food particles with ease and contaminate any food cut on the material moving forward. This can lead to foodborne illnesses and food poisoning that doesn’t just affect restaurants but home cooks as well. 

According to Eat Right, “When juices from raw meats or germs from unclean objects accidentally touch cooked or ready-to-eat foods (such as fruits or salads), cross-contamination occurs. If not cleaned correctly, the board harbors harmful bacteria.” However, with self healing walnut boards, this no longer is an issue as these deep grooves repair themselves the longer the board is used. 

Walnut wood is most commonly used for hardwood flooring, construction, instruments, veneers, cabinetry, furniture, and various woodworking items. This is mainly due to its lifespan and cost-effectiveness. This face grain will last for years to come but not break the bank.

If walnut wood is purchased from a reliable resource, it can be incredibly eco-friendly in nature. Because it requires very little water and shade, it does not need a full team or process to grow and, although the growing process is upwards of 50 years, the fact that every tree is immediately replaced when one is cut down means the process is continual and always adding oxygen to our atmosphere.

Having said all of this, walnut wood’s versatility and strength make it a great material for cutting boards and butcher blocks both in professional restaurant and home kitchen settings alike. 

All dimensions are approximate sizes. It is best to work with the natural characteristics of the wood first and the dimensions second.

AWESOME!!! amazing quality! Friendly and personable in dealing with ordering custom made cutting boards. The initial engraving looks fabulous. We are very happy with the time frame. James worked hard to get our gifts shipped by Christmas. I would recommend him and his company to anyone!

I ordered a custom cutting board as an anniversary gift for my partner. The final product was absolutely beautiful. I’ve never seen a cutting board made with such quality and care. They were willing to work within my budget. I’d recommend this anyone looking for a special, signature piece that will last them a lifetime.

~ Clara C.

Absolutely fantastic job with a cutting board I had made for my boyfriend as a surprise present. It was a difficult project requiring precision as it had to fit into a very specific pull-out slot in a 1950s home.

They very flexible and responsive throughout the entire project. He took each of my requests to heart – even when I requested we cut the board down a little to ensure it was a perfect fit. I couldn’t have been happier with the end result. My boyfriend absolutely loved it and it fit perfectly with the design of his home.

I strongly recommend selecting Mahogany House Woodworks for your next custom wood project – you won’t regret it! Promise!

Ordered two custom boards this year as Christmas presents. They are beautiful! Solid and of the highest quality. They will be treasured for years to come (hopefully!). Thank you for the great service and attention to detail.

What a great experience. I found beautiful wood cutting boards on MHW web site and went to order two of them. The shipping was way off so I called them. The owner James called me back and immediately corrected the problem, took my order over the phone and went to work making my awesome cutting boards. He is a small operation doing big things. It is so nice to do business with a mom and pop shop who go the extra mile for their customers. Big box stores cannot compete with James quality, price and service. Not to mention I have never seen anything as beautiful as what MHW creates.

I ordered a last minute Christmas gift as a custom cutting board for my son who works as a chef in Portland, Oregon. Specific personalized details were added to the piece, it was gift wrapped and sent in record time. Communication and pictures were sent to me to keep me informed about process and status. My son was thrilled with the custom product that arrived in record time in time for the holidays! Thank you for your personalized service.
