Face grain refers to the top (face) of a wood board. These cutting boards are visually stunning and as decorative as they are functional.
Wide plank cutting boards, also known as flat grain or face grain cutting boards, are probably what you are most familiar with, though you may have not known the exact term. Maybe wooden pieces of furniture use the face grain. This simply refers to a piece of wood that is lying flat on its face rather than being turned on its side or stood on its end. Although face grain may be more susceptible to cuts and marks than end grain boards, it shows off the natural grain of the wood and makes for a beautiful piece. When taken care of properly, it can last you for years and keep your knives in good condition.
