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. This means that your board is sure to be able to withstand daily use, potential fall and water damage, and even commercial kitchen use without breaking, chipping, warping, bending, or drying out for years. On top of this, walnut’s self healing nature means that it is a far safer material than less expensive wood or plastic boards. While these lesser boards tend to contaminate food over time from trapped food particles on the surface, self healing boards eliminate the chance of contamination altogether.
Lastly, the reason why walnut wood is used for hardwood flooring, cabinets, gun stocks, instruments, construction, and cabinetry among other things is due to its durability and sustainability. Walnut wood is incredibly eco-friendly because of its lifespan and ease of growth making it the best material for countless projects especially cutting boards.
