Walnut is a beautiful and durable choice for a butcher block cutting board. No two boards are alike because of the visible grain pattern that you will get with this wood. From deep browns to lighter beige the variability is a real eye catcher. This walnut butcher block is built to last and will decorate your kitchen for many years. Walnut is a popular choice now with large commercial board manufacturers and their boards are seen on many cooking shows. Walnut is a really dense wood but it has a slightly more open grain structure than maple and can absorb more liquids, but it can be cleaned easily if you follow proper sanitation techniques. Because each one of our boards is handmade, the wooden pieces are carefully chosen to match grains and colors along the seams. We try to give each board a full range of colors in a beautiful glue-up pattern.
This board is made with natural woods and sealed with all natural and food grade oils and waxes. No stains or varnishes are ever used or applied to any of our products. The color you see is the natural beauty of the wood. For more information on caring for wooden cutting boards please read the Care and Maintenance section on this site.
