This 12×16 maple wood cutting board is a great board for many smaller kitchens or more routine cooking tasks. For home cooks and smaller commercial kitchens, this board serves as a great prep work option and can be easily moved throughout the kitchen without being accidentally dropped or damaged. On top of this, as with all of our cutting boards and butcher blocks, our maple wood cutting boards are 2” thick which makes them incredibly durable as well. 

This is particularly useful as it means that your board can withstand potential fall and water damage, daily use, and both meat and vegetable prep without breaking, chipping, warping, or cracking apart. 

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. Maple has a Janka hardness scale rating of 1,450, making it one of the hardest domestic woods on the market. This is why it is one of the best woods for cutting boards. Not only is it visually stunning with its unique swirl and bird’s eye patterns but it is also highly durable and shock absorbent. 

Furthermore, maple also self heals meaning that any cut grooves made in your board from your chef’s knives will slowly repair themselves. This is particularly useful as it prevents your board from contaminating your food or making you sick. In cheaper wood and plastic cutting boards, these grooves serve as perfect places for food particles to become stuck and contaminate any other food cut on the board. This can lead to food poisoning and foodborne illness easily. However, with a self healing board, this easily becomes a non-issue. 

Maple is most commonly used for hardwood flooring, kitchen cabinets, countertops, furniture, construction work, guitar bodies, gun stocks, and other handmade items like bowls, art, and, ofcourse, cutting boards and butcher blocks. This is because maple is cost-effective and sustainable to manufacture. Maple takes very little time and effort to grow and use for countless projects and is also long-lasting and incredibly strong. 

With all of this said, it’s clear to see why maple boards are so popular with professional chefs, home cooks, and caterers 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.

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.
