Hard Maple with a very beautiful and unique grain pattern. The wood has small round patterns and flecks. Bird's-eye maple is a rare find in any forest. Only 1 in 500 maple trees harvested is bird's eye and it is unknown what causes the bird's-eye effect in those few trees. We use Bird’s Eye Maple in some of our most magnificent boards. See the collection.
We use a Type 3 wood glue that has been FDA approved for food contact.

This is a pretty common sentiment. This speaks to the quality of work we put into our boards. When you receive a board from us, it is smooth, flawless and looks too pretty to mar with your sharp kitchen knives.

In short, without going into a lot of details, follow this guide. If you need something for light cutting and serving, use edge-grain boards. If your task is heavy cutting and chopping, an end-grain chopping block will serve you best. End-grain chopping blocks will take more abuse and tend to be easier on the cutting edge. Instead of cutting across the wood fibers, you are cutting down on the end of the wood.
