There is ample work space on this 12×14 work surface. Perform tasks and cut with a breeze on this walnut board. All of our 2” thick cutting boards are built for style and function combined. The swirling pattern and neutral tone of maple wood makes it incredibly beautiful and versatile as a material. This is why it is commonly seen being used for hardwood flooring, kitchen cabinets, countertops, art projects, decor, gun stocks, guitar bodies, and, of course, cutting boards.
We use the best selection of walnut to showcase the true nature of the beauty of this particular wood. Not only is walnut wood visually stunning but it is also incredibly durable and self healing as well. The self healing nature of this material means that grooves formed by chef’s knives in your board won’t be an issue because they will slowly repair themselves with time. With cheaper wood and plastic cutting boards, these grooves which don’t repair on their own can trap food particles and contaminate all food cut on the board moving forward. This can lead to foodborne illness and food poisoning in a flash which is why it is so valuable to have a self healing board instead.
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. This makes for even more shock absorbency and the ability to be used daily and withstand potential fall or water damage without warping, cracking, chipping, or drying out for years.
Walnut wood is also sustainable and cost-effective as well. This face grain will last for years to come but not break the bank. Because walnut wood can be grown in countless states across the nation and with little effort or overhead, this wood is an ideal alternative to multiple less sustainable materials. It is also long-lasting meaning that the products it is used for last far longer than they would if made out of other less durable woods.
With all of this said, it’s clear to see why walnut wood is an excellent material not only for construction, furniture, and wood projects but for both professional 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.
