Wood Species & Care

While our cutting boards are sturdy and long-lasting, they are made out of natural wood and do require some care to preserve their original appearance. To make things as easy as possible for you, each of our boards can come with a care sheet that can be printed with your company logo.

Maple

An all-American favorite, with its warm golden color and its mostly straight grain, sugar maple is the state tree of New York, Wisconsin, Vermont and West Virginia. Very versatile, it is used for bowling pins, bowling alley lanes, pool cue shafts, butcher's blocks, baseball bats and is a favorite of American furniture manufacturers. It was even used to make women shoe heels until the turn of the century! Hard maple is also a standard wood for cutting boards because it imparts no taste to food and holds up well. A classic!  

Walnut

Walnut

Walnut trees are predominantly grown in North America, California being the largest purveyor of the trees. Centuries ago, Native Americans would extract oil from the Walnut tree to cook corn and beans. Another fun fact is that a handful of tasty black walnuts contain more protein than two slices of bacon! Noble, lustrous, durable, it has an aristocratic looks to it, and its rich dark tones makes the food you’re cutting or serving on it stand out. A pick of choice!

Cherry

Cherry

Another America’s favorite! "New England Mahogany", as called by early Colonial furniture makers, as a color similar to mahogany that darkens with age. Satiny to the touch, the grain of the cherry tree is very desirable because of its unique ripple figures and reddish brown shades. It's strong, moderately hard and has excellent shock resistance, which makes it a very good option for a cutting board. Early printmakers even used it for their printing blocks! Black cherry trees grow throughout the Midwest to Eastern U.S. So classy and unique!

 

Cutting board care

Wood cutting boards are tough and durable. The natural beauty of wood will add to the decor and appeal of any kitchen. However, natural wood cutting boards do require some special care. It isn't time consuming or difficult, and if your customer maintains their wood cutting boards as they use them; the wood boards will last for many years.

 

Storing wood cutting boards in inventory

There are a few guidelines that need to be followed when storing wood cutting boards. In order for  the boards to remain in pristine condition until they are delivered to your customers, it’s best that they are stored treated.

The cutting boards also need to be stored in a temperature controlled environment, were it is not too dry, damp or humid. It’s also best to avoid direct sunlight as UV rays can discolor the wood. If these simple guidelines are followed, you will ensure long-lasting high quality wood cutting boards without any disruptions in your inventory.
