Maple is a very bright and clean wood that has tremendous strength as a cutting board. It will remain stable and not tint with use. Naturally, maple has a beautiful swirling pattern and luster that helps it to stand out from other warm and light woods. On top of this, maple wood is incredibly durable with a Janka hardness scale rating of 1,450, making it one of the hardest domestic woods on the market. This is why this wood is used for countless industries and wood projects averaging over 1 million maple trees per year.
Maple is also self healing which is particularly useful for cutting boards as it means that food contamination concerns are a thing of the past. With cheaper wood and plastic cutting boards, the grooves made by chef’s knives on the boards lead to trapped food particles contaminating all meat and vegetables cut on them. Fortunately, with maple wood, these grooves repair themselves eliminating this issue altogether.
Maple is also highly sustainable which means that it grows easily, can be harvested with little effort, and can be used for countless projects including hardwood flooring, kitchen countertops, cabinets, bowling alleys, guitar bodies, gun stocks, and handmade items such as bowls and cutting boards. The production of this tree also means it is very cost-effective meaning your board isn’t just beautiful and sturdy but also cost-effective and eco-friendly as well.
All dimensions are approximate sizes. It is best to work with the natural characteristics of the wood first and the dimensions second.
