I use the best quality hardwoods for my cutting boards. The type of domestic wood I commonly use are walnut, maple, oak, hickory and cherry. These woods produce a variety of beautiful colors and very unique grain patterns. The reason for using hardwood versus softwood is durability and is able to resist bacteria. Cutting boards are superior for their hard-wearing and self-healing properties, and their ability to preserve a knife edge. The hardwood will withstand knife cuts over time compared to softwood.
I buy my lumber from my local lumberyard “Aura Hardwoods.” I’m like a kid in a candy store when I shop for lumber. I hand pick each piece to make sure it’s the best quality and in perfect condition. You can trust that the wood I use to make the board for you is personally picked and designed for it’s use.
