Maple wood’s neutral tone and straight grain pattern makes it a wonderful solution for countless wood projects including hardwood flooring, car interiors, guitar bodies, drum sets, gun stocks, art, cabinetry, furniture, construction, and other wooden handmade items such as bowls and butcher blocks. It can even be used in place of countless less sustainable materials with a bit of paint or stain alone.
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. This is why this material is perfect not just for our butcher blocks but for all chef’s needs as well. Its grain pattern also keeps your knife stable as it cuts with the direction of the wood fibers which helps extend the life of your costly knives likewise.
This isn’t the only benefit to maple wood, however. Maple wood is also self-healing which is great for the kitchen. With retail and online boards that are of lower quality, knife scores appear on their surface with use. This leads to trapped food particles which contaminate your food and damage your board. However, with maple wood, this is no longer a problem since these scores heal on their own, extending the life of your board and, potentially, YOU!
Maple wood is also eco-friendly and affordable as well. This is due to the fact that this wood grows with ease in countless regions and does not harm our environment when doing so. That is why this wood butcher block isn’t just great for chefs and home cooks but for the world as well.
