These kitchen boards are made from locally grown ash, cherry, and black walnut. The price is $1.45 per square inch. Dense hardwoods have smaller cell structures that reduce the ability of bacteria to thrive on them. The pieces are glued together with the best waterproof food grade glue available. The end grain reduces wear on the board because the knife edge goes between the fibers rather than cutting them off, and because the knife doesn’t do as much cutting to the board it remains sharper longer. The massive thickness means that they can be resurfaced for many decades while still being robust enough for heavy duty use. For those five reasons top chefs prefer thick end grain hardwood kitchen boards. But, with the unique artistic design of these boards there’s a sixth reason that everybody prefers them, for their absolute depth of beauty. This kitchen art is truly a world class board.
