There is ample work space on this 20×36 work surface. Perform tasks and cut with a breeze on this walnut board. Every 2” thick cutting board we create is made to withstand the test of time and look beautiful while doing it. This is why our boards are not only gorgeous but long-lasting likewise.
We use the best selection of walnut to showcase the true nature of the beauty of this particular wood. The fine grain mixed with its rare swirling patterns makes it not just beautiful but incredibly durable as well. In fact, walnut continues to harden even further over time which is why it is most commonly used for hardwood flooring, construction, cabinetry, countertops, guitar bodies, gun stocks, drum sets, car interiors, and other wood projects such as handmade items and art.
On the Janka hardness scale, Walnut ranks 1,010 lbf or 1,010 Janka. With this said, it is harder than cherry wood but not quite as hard as maple wood.On top of this, walnut actually continues to harden further with age which means older cutting boards are actually stronger than new ones. This means your cutting board can withstand daily use and potential fall or water damage without bending, chipping, warping, cracking, or drying out along the way.
Walnut wood also has a self-healing quality that makes it perfect for cutting boards specifically. With cheaper wood, marble, or plastic cutting boards, deep grooves tend to form from frequent use on the surface of the board. These deep grooves trap food particles and contaminate all food cut on the board moving forward. However, with a walnut cutting board, these grooves repair on their own and prevent foodborne illness or food poisoning entirely.
Furthermore, walnut wood is also sustainable and cost-effective likewise. This face grain will last for years to come but not break the bank. This is due to the fact that walnut wood can be grown and used for countless projects without having much overhead cost. It also can be used in place of less sustainable woods as well. This means your cutting board won’t just be beautiful and strong but cost-effective and eco-friendly as well.
