This 14×20 walnut wood cutting board will be a great addition to your kitchen utensils and workflow. The butcher block is designed for the serious chef who wants a tool that will last forever. This 2” thick wood butcher block is a perfect addition to any home kitchen or commercial kitchen that is guaranteed to have daily use and need a block able to handle the prep work with ease.
Walnut’s swirling fine grain pattern makes it not only beautiful but incredibly sturdy as well. 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. Walnut wood also continues to harden further over time making it even stronger with age which is perfect for professional chefs and home cooks alike looking for a long-lasting, reliable butcher block solution. The durability of this material ensures your butcher block can withstand daily use and potential fall or water damage without the risk of chipping, bending, breaking, cracking, warping, or drying out along the way.
Walnut wood is also self-healing which means that you don’t run the risk of foodborne illness or food poisoning when using it. With cheaper wood, plastic, or marble butcher blocks, deep grooves tend to form on the surface of the board that damage the board and trap food particles within it. These particles contaminate your food which is far from safe. However, walnut wood repairs these grooves which keeps your board lasting longer and being used safely for years to come.
On top of its durability and beauty, walnut wood is also sustainable and cost-effective as well. Walnut wood can be used in place of countless less sustainable woods and is also incredibly easy to produce and use for various projects. This makes it perfect for cutting boards as they are high-quality, fairly priced, eco-friendly, and long-lasting all at once.
