Maple is a very bright and clean wood that has tremendous strength as a cutting board. It will remain stable and not tint with use. The swirling and lustrous design of maple wood makes it great for decor while its strength helps it to be functional and long-lasting as well. Maple wood has a Janka hardness scale rating of 1,450, making it one of the hardest domestic woods on the market. This means it can withstand potential fall or water damage as well as daily use without bending, warping, cracking, or chipping.
On top of its strength, maple wood also self heals which means that it repairs any grooves made by your chef’s knives and makes your cutting board far more sanitary. With other cheaper wood and plastic cutting boards, these grooves can trap food particles in them and cause food contamination or even food poisoning. However, with a high-quality maple board, this is no longer an issue.
Maple wood is used most often for cutting boards, butcher blocks, guitar bodies, hardwood flooring, gun stocks, cabinets, furniture, construction, and other woodworking and art projects. This is primarily because maple wood is incredibly durable and affordable. Since maple wood is easy to grow, harvest, manufacture, and use for multiple projects, it is incredibly cost-effective and sustainable. The sustainability of maple wood is also why it is used as a substitute for many other less eco-friendly wood materials.
With all of this said, it’s clear why these maple wood cutting boards are not only beautiful and strong but affordable and sustainable as well making them one of the best options for cutting boards on the market.
