This beautiful 16×20 cherry wood cutting board will fit great in your kitchen and performs well! Each of our cherry wood cutting boards and butcher blocks are 2” thick making them incredibly sturdy as well. This is not only the average size for a home cutting board but makes it great for commercial kitchen usage as well. Experience professional kitchen quality at home or invest in a long-lasting cutting board for your restaurant with ease. 

Cherry is a very warm wood that will darken a bit as it gets more seasoned. While your cherry wood cutting board will likely be a soft salmon color at first, the richer and more lustrous red color that comes with cherry wood’s aging process will begin to appear in less than a year’s time. Not only will this color mean that your board will continue to become more visually appealing but your board will also strengthen and self heal as well.

The average cherry wood has a Janka hardness rating between 950 lbf (4,200 N) and 995 lbf (4,430 N) depending on whether it is black or brazilian cherry. As the cherry wood ages, this hardness rating actually benefits and any scores made by your knives from cutting meat and vegetables will also heal themselves as well. This prevents food poisoning and foodborne illness from trapped food particles in your cutting board as well. 

Cherry is also considered one of the best hardwood flooring materials because of its water resistant and shock absorbent nature. It is also a sustainable wood material and this makes it cost-effective, easy to manufacture, and perfect for form and function all at once. This benefits your cutting board as it can be cleaned in your sink and dropped without warping or cracking. While we don’t recommend you wash your cutting board in the dishwasher, our cherry boards are sustainable, cost-effective, shock absorbent, and easy to maintain and use for years both commercially and in your own home kitchen alike. 

All dimensions are approximate sizes. It is best to work with the natural characteristics of the wood first and the dimensions second.

Do you want a special message, initials, or picture engraved on your cutting board? We offer custom engraving as a great add-on for all of our custom cutting boards and butcher blocks. Our team can help make your new cutting board feel so personalized.

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.
