This cherry wood cutting board has ample workspace to perform any task you throw its way. While this board may be slightly larger than the average home cutting board, its 2” thickness and cherry material makes it perfect both for professional restaurants and home kitchens combined. Cherry wood is also ideal for cutting boards not just for its functionality and durability but also its natural beauty.
Cherry has a very warm and natural glow that will darken and season with each use. While new cherry wood products may appear as a light salmon color, they will begin to darken and actually harden further with time. This hardening comes from a unique quality cherry wood possesses in which it self heals and continues to increase its Janka hardness rating steadily.
The Janka hardness scale puts cherry wood between 950 lbf (4,200 N) and 995 lbf (4,430 N) depending on whether it is black or brazilian cherry. This makes it one of the strongest woods on the market and perfect for hardwood flooring, kitchen countertops, cabinets, furniture, and various woodworking products.
Its self healing nature also specifically benefits cutting boards and butcher blocks as it means that your board won’t collect raw food in its knife grooves and contaminate your future meals. This is why cherry wood is considered one of the best cutting board woods for restaurants and home kitchens alike.
On top of its high quality and durability, cherry wood cutting boards are sustainable and eco-friendly as cherry wood is incredibly easy to grow, manufacture, and use for any and all kinds of projects imaginable. This is also yet another reason why cherry wood is perfect for cost-effective and long-lasting projects ranging from kitchens to skyscrapers and anything in between.
