This 14×24 cherry wood cutting board is built with both style and function in mind. Perform any culinary task with the ample space our cherry wood cutting boards provide. Each of our cherry wood cutting boards are 2” thick to provide both longevity and durability for years to come. The cherry wood utilized in each of our boards ranges on the Janka hardness scale from 950 lbf (4,200 N) to 995 lbf (4,430 N) depending on whether it is black or brazilian cherry. This makes cherry wood not only visually appealing but structurally sound as well.
Cherry has a very warm and natural glow that will darken and season with each use. While you most likely will purchase your wood cutting board when it is a light salmon color, the board will eventually turn to a rich mahogany color and become even stronger through this process. Similarly, your cutting board will also self-heal making it far more effective than other plastic and cheap wood cutting board alternatives you may find at local retail or kitchen supply stores.
Cherry is most commonly used for hardwood flooring, kitchen cabinets, furniture, guitars, gun stocks, and kitchen items such as cutting boards and butcher blocks. This is due to both the durability and natural luster as well as the sustainability that cherry wood offers its users.
When it comes to sustainability, not only is cherry wood one of the most sustainable woods out there but it is also incredibly easy to grow, grows quickly, and helps eliminate the use of less sustainable red woods like mahogany.
With all of this said, it’s abundantly clear why cherry wood is one of the best woods for cutting boards and butcher blocks alike. The shock absorbent, sustainable, cost-effective, and high-quality nature of these boards makes them great both for commercial and at-home use as well.
All dimensions are approximate sizes. It is best to work with the natural characteristics of the wood first and the dimensions second.
