A simple and solid slab
1.5 inch edge-grain butcher block, made with North American Maple. Cut to a perfect one foot square.
Our cutting board utilizes a classic edge grain — the standard for all cutting boards on the market. It's the standard for good reason — it's insanely durable and totally flat. It's also stunning — edge grain boards don't hide the wood they're cut from. Across the entire handmade piece — the North America maple is on full display.
We made our cutting board slightly larger than most boards on the market — so you can use it for anything. From holidays to day-to-day food prep, this is the only cutting board you’ll ever need.
The edge-grain construction makes the surface of the board much flatter. Careful handmade craftsmanship ensures that even the mildest irregularities are sanded out. And a thicker-than-usual maple wood slab ensures that the board never contorts, twists, bends or becomes unstable.
