Larch Wood

Heirloom End Grain Cutting Boards

Self-healing Board

This glossy, end grain wood cutting board is self-healing and life-lasting.

Each board is harvested and assembled from Larch logs in a small Nova Scotia mill. The wood fibers are lined vertically so they can close and heal after you’ve cut them.

The flexible end grain will self-cleanse and squeeze out any excess color, bacteria, or food, and the rubber feet prevent moisture from getting trapped. Besides its magical healing
properties—the board has intricate gradients and patterns that you’ll uncover by cutting across the growth rings.

Chefs praise the density of end grain because it absorbs the impact of blades and even helps keep them sharp. With proper seasoning and care, a Larch Wood board will be helping you prep and looking great for generations.

Larch Wood has been my passion for the last 13 years. Employing local people in an area of high unemployment and making a unique and beautiful value-added wood product from locally harvested wood has been very rewarding.

    Can you cut vegetables and meat on same board. Do you clean with soap or something else.

    Hi William you can cut anything on the boards. If I'm cutting raw chicken and I want to move onto veg I will use a small amount of dish detergent on a plastic scrubby and wash under luke warm running water dry it off and move onto the veg.

    Hi Bonnie

    They are made like a traditional butcher block with the end grain being the cutting surface. If you care for them properly they will last a lifetime of use. If you do purchase one make sure you get a conditioner with it or buy a similar product.

    Ours is a mixture of beeswax and mineral oil.

    Yes, the boards are aesthetically pleasing, but why are they so expensive when other materials, such as Rock Maple, Acacia, bamboo, Oak, are much less so?

    Hi Edward

    The process to make an end grain board from log to finish product is 30 steps.

    We finish sand the boards to 320 grit and we hand pick the grain patterning for each board. This is time consuming and a lot of care goes into our finished product.

    Kind regards, Don
