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.

Coming from using John Boos, I find the Walnut End Grain board from Boardsmith to be a much better board. It seems to be the right hardness, definitely well oiled and more aesthetic. I recommend Boardsmith cutting boards very highly.
The packaging was excellent and the paper surrounding the board was wet with oil ! Love it.
We have used it already and we find it an absolute joy to use.
I love my end grain walnut butcher block cutting board. The care instructions were simple and it looks great and works well.
Love using the board as the cook of the family! It feels luxurious and practical at the same time. It’s nice and weighty so it’s a stable platform, and the walnut feels great to use my knives on.
It’s a striking, well crafted piece that folks can’t help but comment on. I’m sure this will be an heirloom someday.
It’s stunning. Heavy duty. Looks like it will last me a long time as long as I care for it.
Thank you for the beautiful board and for honoring my request for a high contrast color scheme. I got this for my husband's birthday. He was content with one of the discounted boards but I wanted to surprise him with one of the regular ones. I know it's a little silly but he has a look of joy on his face when he uses it, to hear that full sound when chopping vegetables is wonderful. If someone is reading my review and thinks, is this worth it? Yes, it is worth every penny. It is beautiful, well-crafted, and will withstand many years of use. Do yourself a favor and grab the butter while you're here because it really does keep it nice and goes a long way.
