End Grain Cutting Boards

End grain cutting boards are a functional and fashionable addition to any kitchen. End grain cutting boards are created by gluing blocks of wood together with their end grain facing upward which gives them their distinctive checkerboard-like design – just like traditional butcher’s chopping block construction!

Their construction not only gives them style but durability as the individual pieces are much more resistant to scoring thanks to the end grain’s absorptive qualities. With simple regular maintenance, these end grain butcher blocks will look good and last through frequent use.

End Grain Cutting Board Designs

Our end grain cutting boards are available in square, rectangular, and round cutting board designs. Each piece is made to order and no two are exactly alike.

We can add additional cutting board features like finger holes, and juice grooves for additional versatility and ease of use.

While end grain cutting boards are gorgeous as-is, if you’d like further cosmetic customization we also offer custom laser engraving. You may upload the file directly while ordering. Just be sure to include the engraving size and location in your order notes.

Popular Wood Choices for End Grain Cutting Boards

One of the great qualities of end grain cutting boards is that nearly any type of wood can be used.

There’s a diverse range of wood species on our best sellers list including:

  • Maple

  • Walnut

  • African Mahogany

  • Birch

  • Cherry

  • White Oak

You could choose a dark, distinctive walnut end grain style for a modern kitchen or a rich brown maple for a more traditional farmhouse style. One of the benefits of our wood cutting boards is their style, and how they can complement your kitchen.

Walnut End Grain Cutting Boards

Walnut end grain cutting boards are some of our most popular styles. The dark color of these  cutting boards gives them a unique look different from so many others. These cutting boards can function just as well in the kitchen as a table centerpiece for serving. 

Keeping your walnut cutting board conditioned with food-grade mineral oil is ideal if it’s going to be used regularly for food preparation. 

Maple End Grain Cutting Boards

Maple end grain cutting boards are a classic choice. The rich brown color is what many people imagine when they think of a wood-cutting board. The variety in hues in maple end grain cutting boards allows for a bolder checkered pattern than many other wood species, making them an attractive choice for any kitchen.
