Walnut End Grain Cutting Board

Regular price $240.00

Feet are installed on your board to provide stability and air circulation. We strongly encourage this, and most of our customers agree.


  • Your board will arrive already seasoned and ready for use. We use a pharmacy grade, food safe mineral oil, followed by beeswax, for water resistance and protection.
  • End Grain cutting boards are more scratch-resistant and easier on knives than other boards, but still avoid using serrated knives


  • Hand-wash with hot, soapy water. Always dry thoroughly.
  • Never soak or submerge board in water, or place in the dishwasher.
  • To help maintain water repellency, apply our Board Butter (or a combination of heated mineral oil and beeswax) to the cutting surface periodically. First clean and sanitize the board, then apply paste with a soft cloth. Rub into the surface and wipe off any excess.

Crafted with sustainably harvested Black Walnut. These boards have a deep chocolate color highlighted with black streaks and some lighter-colored sapwood. Some boards are fairly consistent in color, and others have high contrast between lighter and darker woods. 

Of the three hardwoods we use, walnut arguably has the highest 'Wow!' factor. In terms of durability, it has the perfect balance of scratch resistance and gentleness on knife edges. 

While we can't guarantee any particular look, you are welcome to request a preference in the 'comments' section and we will accommodate if we have one available. Some customers prefer it more uniform and others like high contrast. 

Walnut lumber prices almost doubled between 2020 and 2022. We expect small increases in lumber pricing to continue for the remainder of the year. We are doing our best not to adjust our pricing too much, but occasional small increases are likely.

Artisan quality to the highest degree

After doing a great deal of comparing prior to purchasing my Carolina Cut and Sidekick walnut end grain cutting boards, I couldn't be more thrilled. The boards are not only stunningly beautiful, but functional, stable, and superior in performance. My kitchen proudly displays these works of art and they are of the highest quality. The boards are perfect in every way, from their thickness, ease of maintenance, and smoothness, to their flawless construction. They are a joy to use and I just wish I had not waited so long to buy them. I even delayed in using them due to how lovely they were on display! John and his team pay attention to details that you don't often see in today's workmanship. The boards came extremely well packaged with complete care instructions. Boardsmith boards are of the highest quality and beyond compare to other brands. Treat yourself and buy one of John's boards!

Well made, great quality, beautiful board

I ordered 16x22 walnut end grain cutting board and it's fantastic. I was a bit skeptical about having cutting board with feet but after a week of using it I realized how useful they are. The cutting board becomes incredibly stable. Check cutting boards 101 - it helped me a lot!

Donna Rollene

It is a sure 5 stars. We got the Carolina Cut and small cutting board in a walnut grain. I just keep my large cutting board on the counter and use it all the time. Before and since buying, I have compared it in quality and price with many other boards, and this far outshines them all. The thickness, smoothness, handiwork and beauty are all top quality. I chose to put my juice gutter (sorry, I forgot the proper term) on the bottom of the board, so I could have full use of the top. I cut meats with juice on it only a small portion of the time, so I think it works SO much better on the bottom where I can have it available to use only when I really need it. Thank you John and team for putting your best into combining sturdiness, high quality and beauty in a kitchen essential for the whole family!

My new cutting board is perfect in every way. I use it every day, multiple times a day and it’s a pleasure. Beautiful, well constructed, durable, easy to clean and care for. Great addition to my kitchen.

Daniel Best

I ordered the 16x22 dark walnut board. I knew that the color of the sapwood could vary, so I sent them a note asking for a darker shade if at all possible. My board came and just as I asked, they’d found a darker selection to make my board! The request for such was even handwritten on the wrapping. John followed up with me the day it was delivered to answer a quick question as well. Beautiful craftsmanship and service. I’ll have the board for many years to come and it’s a wonderful addition to my kitchen. Could not be any happier!
