Cherry is a very warm wood that will darken a bit as it gets more seasoned. Your cherry wood cutting board will likely arrive with a natural salmon color but will slowly darken and become richer and more visually appealing over time. On top of this, your cherry wood board will also harden and self heal which makes it perfect for daily kitchen use in both professional kitchen and home kitchen settings.
The self healing nature of cherry wood means that any knife grooves made by daily use will heal themselves and prevent food poisoning or foodborne illness that could be caused by your cutting board otherwise. When it comes to cheap plastic and wood cutting boards, one of the biggest issues are food particles that get trapped in these grooves and contaminate all your food moving forward. However, with a self healing board, this is no longer an issue.
Cherry wood also 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 an already strong wood and, with it constantly hardening and strengthening with age, you can expect a long-lasting and cost-effective experience from a cherry wood cutting board guaranteed.
The most common uses for cherry wood include construction, hardwood flooring, furniture, gun stocks, guitar bodies, drum sets, cabinets, countertops, and other household items. This is due to its durability, visual appeal, and long lifespan primarily. This is also why it remains one of three wood materials we use to create our cutting boards and butcher blocks in our shop as we know it is sure to please our customers and withstand the test of time without fail.
All dimensions are approximate sizes. It is best to work with the natural characteristics of the wood first and the dimensions second.
