Wood Cutting Board - Review
Looking to buy a wood cutting board? You're not alone. This is
one of the most popular types of cutting boards and getting one that performs
well in the kitchen means you'll have years of good use. Wood cutting
boards are durable and you should buy one made from a hardwood like: Maple,
Birch or Acacia. Hardwood boards won't dull your knives and they tend
to offer a sanitary surface. The downside to wood is that it can be prone
to scatching and knicks. It can also be prone to splitting so seasoning
with a food safe mineral oil is important.

"Recommended" Wood Cutting Board:
John Boos Chopping Block, 10.5 pounds, Maple
This end grain wood cutting board is made from Northern hard Rock Maple. Reviewers liked the way this board felt under the knife and found that after 750 cuts the knife remained sharp. Where this cutting board didn't receive perfect marks was for durability (one of the first boards they sampled split) and cleanup (the board needs to be hand washed and oiled to keep it clean and looking good).
