cutting board comparison

This 16×24 cherry end grain, or butcher block wood cutting board is built like your grandma’s thanksgiving turkey- pretty and made with love! Our 2” thick boards and blocks are designed to be durable, structurally sound, shock absorbent, and still cost-effective despite it. 

Cherry has a very warm and natural glow that will darken and season with each use. This means that your beautiful butcher block will only continue to become richer in tone with time and will also harden further with age as well. That’s why it is considered one of the best woods for hardwood flooring, guitar bodies, gun stocks, car interiors, drum sets, furniture, cabinetry, furniture, countertops, veneers, and other handmade items including, of course, cutting boards and butcher blocks.

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. This makes it naturally strong and durable which is why it functions as a great cutting board material. This is also why all of our various cutting boards and butcher blocks are capable of lasting for years even when used daily without bending, cracking, chipping, warping, or drying out. In fact, its end grain pattern also keeps your knife stable as it cuts with the direction of the wood fibers.

Not only is cherry strong, however, but it is also self healing which is highly beneficial for cutting boards and butcher blocks. Cheaper plastic, wood, and marble cutting boards found at retail stores tend to acquire knife scores on their surface with time and, while they may not look like much, these grooves trap food particles within them that contaminate your food gradually. This is where cherry wood shines as it heals these grooves preventing food contamination and the food poisoning that comes with it. 

Cherry wood is also incredibly cost-effective and environmentally friendly as well. The fact that it grows quickly and with ease as well as the fact that it doesn’t harm the environment in the slightest makes it not just a high-quality wood and a beautiful wood but one that helps our world and does so for far less than other materials out there. 

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