This beautiful 18×26 cherry wood cutting board will fit great in your kitchen and performs well! All of our cherry wood cutting boards and butcher are 2” thick which makes them perfect both for professional chefs and home cooks alike! The durability and shock absorbance that comes with our 2” thick boards makes them ideal for daily use, potential water and fall damage, and visual display combined. 

Cherry is a very warm wood that will darken a bit as it gets more seasoned. The starting color of a cherry wood product is a light salmon color. However, over time, these products begin to mature, harden, and darken. The natural luster and rich color of mature cherry wood makes it not just stunning but ideal for those looking for dark red wood substitutes that are also sustainable and environmentally friendly. 

On top of its maturing color, cherry wood is also known for self healing and hardening with age as well. While cherry sapwood is a soft wood prone to damage, the cherry used for our cutting boards is mature and continues to harden even further each and every day. 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.

Cherry wood is also used commonly for hardwood flooring, construction, guitars, gun stocks, drum sets, kitchen cabinets, countertops, and other household items including, of course, butcher blocks and utensils. Because cherry wood grows easily, matures quickly, can be produced rapidly, and does not have much overhead, it serves as one of the most sustainable and cost-effective wood materials on the market.

The lifespan of cherry wood is astonishing if cared for properly. In fact, according to Academy Floor, “The oldest cherry tree ever studied was 258 years in age. The cherry tree is also a very tall tree, with a height that can reach up to 80 feet and a trunk size of 2-3 feet in width.” As such, you can expect a long-lasting, visually stunning, durable, and high quality cutting board guaranteed when choosing any of our excellent cherry cutting boards for your kitchen. 

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

AWESOME!!! amazing quality! Friendly and personable in dealing with ordering custom made cutting boards. The initial engraving looks fabulous. We are very happy with the time frame. James worked hard to get our gifts shipped by Christmas. I would recommend him and his company to anyone!

I ordered a custom cutting board as an anniversary gift for my partner. The final product was absolutely beautiful. I’ve never seen a cutting board made with such quality and care. They were willing to work within my budget. I’d recommend this anyone looking for a special, signature piece that will last them a lifetime.

~ Clara C.

Absolutely fantastic job with a cutting board I had made for my boyfriend as a surprise present. It was a difficult project requiring precision as it had to fit into a very specific pull-out slot in a 1950s home.

They very flexible and responsive throughout the entire project. He took each of my requests to heart – even when I requested we cut the board down a little to ensure it was a perfect fit. I couldn’t have been happier with the end result. My boyfriend absolutely loved it and it fit perfectly with the design of his home.

I strongly recommend selecting Mahogany House Woodworks for your next custom wood project – you won’t regret it! Promise!

Ordered two custom boards this year as Christmas presents. They are beautiful! Solid and of the highest quality. They will be treasured for years to come (hopefully!). Thank you for the great service and attention to detail.

What a great experience. I found beautiful wood cutting boards on MHW web site and went to order two of them. The shipping was way off so I called them. The owner James called me back and immediately corrected the problem, took my order over the phone and went to work making my awesome cutting boards. He is a small operation doing big things. It is so nice to do business with a mom and pop shop who go the extra mile for their customers. Big box stores cannot compete with James quality, price and service. Not to mention I have never seen anything as beautiful as what MHW creates.

I ordered a last minute Christmas gift as a custom cutting board for my son who works as a chef in Portland, Oregon. Specific personalized details were added to the piece, it was gift wrapped and sent in record time. Communication and pictures were sent to me to keep me informed about process and status. My son was thrilled with the custom product that arrived in record time in time for the holidays! Thank you for your personalized service.
