This 16×24 walnut wood butcher block is a great size for a smaller kitchen with smaller countertops. I find it has the perfect balance of function and style.
This particular board with the end grain build will last forever.
The benefits of an end grain wood cutting board are numerous:
- Self healing knife marks
- More resistant to bacteria and food buildup
- Keeps your knife stable as it cuts with the direction of the wood fibers
All dimensions are approximate sizes. It is best to work with the natural characteristics of the wood first and the dimensions second.
