This 12×20 walnut cutting board is the perfect addition for your kitchen tasks! This particular size is one of our favorites because it fits so well on various countertops. The size can easily slide over your kitchen sink to scrape off all the scraps from your cutting tasks. This makes it perfect for professional restaurant settings as well as the average home alike and is why we strongly recommend one of our beautiful and more compact boards for every kitchen guaranteed. The 2” thickness of our cutting boards and butcher blocks means that they are impeccably durable and shock absorbent likewise. 

The stunning swirling and neutral fine grain of walnut wood means that it not only functions as a beautiful piece of decor and a great alternative for other rare woods but is incredibly durable and long-lasting as well. This means that your walnut wood cutting board is sure to be able to withstand daily use and potential fall or water damage without bending, warping, chipping, cracking, acquiring mold on the board, or drying out for years. 

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. Walnut wood isn’t just durable and shock resistant, however, as it also is self healing which is particularly beneficial for cutting boards and those that use them. With cheaper wood and plastic cutting boards, the common mistake of cutting in the same spot daily leads to deep grooves in the board that trap food particles and contaminate all food cut on the board moving forward. However, with a self healing board, these grooves repair themselves over time and ensure a safer kitchen prep experience without the risk of food poisoning or foodborne illness. 


Walnut wood is also sustainable to grow, produce, manufacture, and use for countless wood projects alike. This is why this wood can be seen in hardwood flooring, construction, car interiors, gun stocks, guitar bodies, cabinets, veneers, countertops, and various other wood items including cutting boards. This is also why many people use this wood as an alternative to less sustainable woods as well. That’s why walnut wood is not only considered incredibly beautiful and strong but eco-friendly, long-lasting, and cost-effective likewise making it the perfect wood for cutting boards guaranteed.

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.
