We love heavy-duty cutting boards, which bring a big of the forest to your kitchen or table. While some producers use lumber scraps, we shape our own slabs of solid wood to bring out the natural grain. Our traditional, edge-grain boards are hand-shaped from hard maple, the hardest and finest-grained North American lumber that's perfect for cutting boards. Meanwhile, the end-grain boards, which show the growth rings on the top cutting surface, are cut from a local oak tree and finished with natural oil. Each order includes a free bottle of linseed oil so you can easily renew the shine and protect your board after scuffs and slices in the kitchen.
