This walnut wood cutting board is a great size for a smaller kitchen with smaller countertops. I find it has the perfect balance of function and style. Each of our 2” thick butcher blocks are not just visually appealing but able to handle daily use without falling apart in the slightest. 

Walnut’s swirling fine grain pattern makes it not only beautiful but incredibly sturdy as well. It also keeps your knife stable as it cuts with the direction of the wood fibers. That is why this wood is used most commonly for cabinetry, countertops, veneers, car interiors, guitar bodies, gun stocks, hardwood flooring, furniture, construction, and countless other projects including art and handmade items. 

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. In fact, walnut wood hardens even further with age which means that your board will only get better over time and not worse. It also means that your board will be able to withstand daily use and potential fall or water damage without bending, chipping, warping, cracking, or drying out for years to come. 

Furthermore, walnut wood is also self-healing which makes it ideal for cutting boards as it is far safer than cheaper wood, plastic, or marble boards out there. While these boards are susceptible to deep grooves in their surface over time which trap food particles and contaminate food, walnut wood repairs these grooves thus eliminating this risk altogether. Therefore, no food poisoning or foodborne illness ever occurs. 

Walnut wood is also sustainable and cost-effective as well. This particular board with the end grain build will last forever. The reason for this is not only walnut wood’s durability but the fact that it can be produced and used for countless projects with ease. It can even be used in place of less sustainable woods as well. This makes our blocks not just high-quality but long-lasting and eco-friendly as well. 

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.

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.
