This 12×20 end grain butcher block is a great size for smaller countertops or even over your sink. It has a great balance and feel that will get you on par even with Chef Gordon Ramsay! The 2” thickness of our butcher blocks makes them perfect not only for home cooks but professional restaurant settings as well and guarantees their structural integrity for years to come. 

Cherry wood initially comes in a salmon pink color but, over time, it darkens further. This means that your beautiful butcher block will only continue to become richer in tone with time and will also harden further with age as well. That’s why it is considered one of the best woods for hardwood flooring, guitar bodies, gun stocks, car interiors, drum sets, furniture, cabinetry, furniture, countertops, veneers, and other handmade items including, of course, cutting boards and butcher blocks. 

Cherry wood has a Janka hardness rating between 950 lbf (4,200 N) and 995 lbf (4,430 N) depending on whether it is black or brazilian cherry. This makes it naturally strong and durable which is why it functions as a great cutting board material. This makes it the perfect choice for our butcher blocks as they can handle daily use and water or fall damage for years without drying out, warping, cracking, chipping, or bending at all. Similarly, its end grain pattern also keeps your knife stable as it cuts with the direction of the wood fibers.

On top of this, cherry wood is also self healing which is great for cutting boards and butcher blocks since it makes them far safer to use for years. With low quality cutting boards made of wood, plastic, and marble, knife scores on their surface over time trap food particles and contaminate food. This is why food poisoning and foodborne illness is so common in cheaper restaurants and kitchen settings. However, cherry wood heals these scores gradually which eliminates the grooves needed to trap these particles in the first place. This makes these boards far safer to handle for far longer. 

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

Step 1: Choosing Your Cutting Board or Butcher Block.

We offer many add-ons to help make your cutting board easier to store, more useful, as well as personalization with our custom engraving. Once you choose your product and place your order, we’ll begin building your board soon after.


Step 2: Assembly of Your Cutting Board

Each cutting board is handmade to ensure the utmost level of quality and craftsmanship. We use beautiful and very durable wood blends, all up to 2” thick. During our build process, we pay attention to the finest details, which truly make our boards stand out from other brands, as well as generic boards you find elsewhere.

If you ordered accessories or engraving, we will next install these features after the board has been constructed, followed by the staining and sealing process.


Step 3: Packaging & Prepare for Shipping

Each cutting board is securely packaged to prevent damage during shipping. We use both UPS & Fedex shipping methods, and your cutting board will arrive with instructions on proper usage.


Step 4: Enjoy Your Cutting Board!

Your cutting board/block will truly brighten up any kitchen. Prepare each meal knowing that you’ve chosen a high-quality product that will last many years.
