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.

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.
