2nxlbigWelcome to Custom Cutting Boards where we make all of our cutting boards by hand. And because we use only high-quality hard woods and proven construction techniques, your cutting board will last a lifetime — we guarantee it!

Plus, we make all of our boards in the edge-grain style.

 

What is edge-grain style?

 

On a piece of lumber, the face of the board is called the “face-grain” which is a great gluing surface but not a good cutting surface. The edge of the board is called the “edge-grain” which is a great cutting surface but a bad gluing surface. With edge-grain boards you rip the lumber along its face grain, turn the pieces onto their sides and glue the boards together using the face-grain as the gluing surface. This process exposes the edge-grain (the best cutting surface). It’s a more expensive way of making cutting boards but it makes for a better board. Boards made with the face grain side exposed are cheaper to produce, will not lat as long, many times will warp, and will dull your knives. Don’t settle for face-grain boards when you can get edge-grain boards that will last longer and are better for your knives.
