This 10×16 maple wood cutting board is great for larger tasks in your kitchen and professional restaurants alike. All of our 2” thick cutting boards offer durability, style, and lifespans that far outdo other cheap plastic, marble, and wood cutting boards on the market.
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. This is especially useful when it comes to cutting boards as they can easily warp, crack, or altogether break if made out of the wrong material.
On top of this, maple also has a self healing quality which means that deep grooves made by your kitchen knives won’t affect your cutting board at all. These grooves will slowly repair themselves and keep your food sanctuary much easier than plastic or cheap wood cutting boards would. Since food contamination from trapped food particles in cutting board grooves is one of the biggest issues these boards face, it’s important that you choose one which prevents this from happening without fail.
Maple has a Janka hardness scale rating of 1,450, making it one of the hardest domestic woods on the market. This means that your maple wood cutting board can easily handle being dropped, cut on daily, and used for years without needing to be replaced. The maple also hardens even further over time making your board stronger the longer you use it and not the other way around.
Maple is most commonly used for kitchen cabinets, countertops, furniture, guitars, gun stocks, hardwood flooring, and woodworking as it is fairly easy to work with and shape but is also incredibly durable and shock absorbent.
Furthermore, maple is also one of the most eco-friendly woods on the market as well since it grows quickly and easily and can be harvested and manufactured sustainably.
In fact, according to Better Homes and Gardens, “While it’ll take time for it to reach maturity, it won’t stay a leafless stick forever! Some trees are slow growers (20-30 years to reach full size) and some are fast (10-15 years). The good news is that red maples grow at medium speed; in the tree world, this equals about 12-18 inches of height a year.” This makes it a fairly fast-growing tree and one that takes minimal attention to grow properly. This is also why maple is often used as a substitute for other more temperamental wood materials.
With all of this said, it’s clear why this high quality wood material is ideal for cutting boards and butcher blocks of all shapes and sizes. Maple wood is easy to produce, durable, shock absorbent, self-healing, naturally beautiful, cost-effective, and long-lasting all at once.
All dimensions are approximate sizes. It is best to work with the natural characteristics of the wood first and the dimensions second.

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.

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.
