This 12×16 Maple Edge Grain Cutting Board is a great size for smaller countertops or even over your sink. This particular size is great for leaving out on your countertops for continued use. Paired with its 2” thickness, our maple butcher blocks are sure to last for years and not crack or chip whatsoever along the way. 

Maple wood’s neutral tone and straight grain pattern makes it a wonderful solution for countless wood projects including hardwood flooring, car interiors, guitar bodies, drum sets, gun stocks, art, cabinetry, furniture, construction, and other wooden handmade items such as bowls and butcher blocks. It can even be used in place of countless less sustainable materials with a bit of paint or stain alone.

Maple wood has a Janka hardness scale rating of 1,450, making it one of the hardest domestic woods on the market. This means it can withstand potential fall or water damage as well as daily use without bending, warping, cracking, or chipping. This is why it serves as a great solution for cutting boards and chef’s knives alike. Its end grain pattern also keeps your knife stable as it cuts with the direction of the wood fibers which helps both professional chefs and home cooks alike to maintain the structural integrity of their tools for years to come. 

On top of its durability and longevity, maple wood self heals. This is particularly useful for cutting boards and butcher blocks because it means that knife scores on the block’s surface won’t affect your food safety at all. With cheaper wood, plastic, and marble boards, these scores would trap food particles and contaminate your food resulting in food poisoning and foodborne illness. However, with maple wood, this is no longer an issue because this wood gradually repairs these knife marks and eliminates this issue entirely.

Lastly, maple wood is also eco-friendly and cost-effective. Because maple wood grows rapidly and with ease anywhere, this makes it easy to supply in bulk thus lowering its price. It also means that this wood helps the environment and has little impact on its surroundings. Therefore, maple wood isn’t just a good solution for your kitchen needs but is also helpful to our world and with your budget likewise. 

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