This cherry end grain, or butcher block wood cutting board is built like your grandma’s thanksgiving turkey- pretty and made with love! Our 2” thickness for each of our butcher blocks ensures that they last for years and have the shock absorbency necessary to be used both in professional and home kitchen setting without becoming damaged or chipped at all. 

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. That’s also why our cutting boards and butcher blocks can handle years of daily use as well as potential fall or water damage without bending, drying out, cracking, warping, or chipping at all.

Additionally, cherry wood also self heals which is highly beneficial for butcher blocks specifically. With lower quality butcher blocks found at retail stores and online, deep grooves form from daily use with chef’s knives that trap food particles and contaminate your food. However, with cherry wood, these particles are not an issue as the grooves repair themselves and trap nothing no matter how often the board is used. Also, its grain pattern keeps your knife stable as it cuts with the direction of the wood fibers.

Finally, the ease in which cherry wood is grown and manufactured means that it sits in the top five most eco-friendly and cost-effective wood options on the market. The fact that this wood grows quickly and with little overhead cost means it can supply its demand and charge less for it all while helping our earth in the process. 

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