Product Overview

 

This is the medium size version of our All Natural Line of cutting boards perfect for all of your medium to heavy duty cutting or chopping needs. It is approximately  9" Deep x 14" Wide x 1.25" thick. (Sizes can vary slightly +-1/4"-1/2" as each of these are custom made from one piece of wood) This is the perfect sized board for someone who cooks large meals but does not want a cutting board that is too big and takes up too much counter space or storage space.


These boards are re-enforced with two high grade stainless steel rods in the middle of the board to help stabilize the wood, reducing the chance of wood movement (warping).

It is hand made with care in Canada using one solid piece of Canadian Hard Maple (no glue) and other all natural, and completely non-toxic materials.

All of our products are finished in our very own 100% Organic Cutting board and butcher block finishes.  Our finish is a blend of 100% Certified Organic MCT Coconut oil blended with 100% Certified Organic Palm wax (Carnauba wax) for increased water resistance and 100% Organic Certified Canadian and USA beeswax from Canadian and US apiaries. We also offer a finish without beeswax for our Vegan customers though we very highly recommend our finish WITH beeswax.

Coconuts are NOT part of the tree nut family their name is a misnomer, as well they have antibacterial and anti fungal properties.


Hard Maple is one of the hardest, and most durable woods, and can withstand heavy use in a kitchen. ALL professional grade butcher block and cutting boards are made of Hard Maple. It is a closed grained hardwood (unlike oak, etc) that doesn't absorb bacteria easily, and with antibacterial properties on top of that it makes it the most preferred wood for cutting boards and wooden utensils. 

The completely non-slip feet on this cutting board are made of hand cut all natural gum rubber, yes, natural rubber from a tree, NOT PVC or synthetic rubber, and they are affixed to the board with high grade stainless steel screws that will NEVER rust.

 

Our All Natural Series cutting boards are:

 

-100% Canadian made! 

-100% Canadian Hard Maple sourced within 100 miles of our facility in Ontario Canada.

-Absolutely NO Glues or adhesives, made from a solid piece of Canadian Hard Maple

-Absolutely NO Fungicides, herbicides, or pesticides used during manufacturing (NO antisap stain coatings)

-Absolutely NO petroleum or synthetic finishes, only truly organic, natural nature made finishes.

-A tree is planted for every Urthware board sold to help offset our footprint.

PLEASE READ/NOTE:

*All cutting boards (regardless of finish chosen) use organic beeswax to fill imperfections as well as to water seal the feet and re-enforcing bars.

*For residential use only

 



Imperfections:

This cutting board is made of one solid piece of face grain Canadian hard Maple. It contains NO GLUES or toxic adhesives of any sort and is completely natural. Remember, that because it is made with one piece of hard wood there are always some completely natural discolorations and imperfections like mineral staining, spalting, knots, etc. There may be darker and lighter areas as well. As we do not fill holes with epoxies or other toxic substances, we DO NOT sell cutting boards with holes, grooves, or any significant defects in the top of your board that could harbor bacteria, there can be some in the bottom or sides as it is not a cutting surface.

Wood movement:

For us to keep these cutting boards glue free and organic, we make them from one piece of wood, note that ALL wooden cutting boards, (and really anything made of wood) will display some movement (warping) from moisture, it can even be from weather change, and boards made from one piece of wood are, in general, more prone to warp than "glued up" edge grain cutting boards. It this happens we can not consider this a defect, we can do nothing about this as wood is a natural material that can and will move. You can usually avoid any excessive movement by keeping your board dry and well oiled. ans-size-chart3.jpg


Note on maintenance: We do recommend that you purchase our organic oil/wax finishes at the same time that you purchase your cutting board as you will need to oil & wax your cutting board to maintain it, and it will save you significant shipping costs versus purchasing the finish at a later time, on their own.  If you would like to use your own organic finishing oil, that is absolutely up to you, but we highly recommend ours.  Remember that our finish waxes and oils contain 100% organic, high quality ingredients which increase the longevity of your board, which have been tested with our boards, and not using them may result in damage to your board.  Maintaining any wooden cutting board with oil/wax is a must to help prevent staining, water absorption, and warping and cracking.

    High quality, sturdy cutting board

    Posted by Chris on 19th Apr 2020

    Overall I am very happy with this cutting board. It is of very high craftsmanship and is a durable product that I can see lasting a very long time. The rubber feet are very nice in keeping the surface flat and steady while cutting even very tough items.

    My only issue with it is something that is not specific to this product, but moreso with wooden cutting boards in general. They require a lot of maintenance. Ultimately this is the price to pay for having a product without toxins, I suppose, but for those moving from a plastic cutting board to these wooden ones, beware that you have to take care of this product much more.

    Great board!

    Posted by Kelley Liley on 5th Feb 2020

    Great quality and size! Not the easiest to pick up for placing food into a pot- for that I recommend the one with the handle. But I can't say enough great things about Urthware, their products are the best I have found!

    Solid and non-toxic!

    Posted by Unknown on 4th Jan 2020

    I purchased two cutting boards and received them last fall. I waited to do a review because I wanted to see how they performed over a few months. After using these cutting boards I can honestly say they are awesome. They are super solid and the quality is unsurpassed. And, they are not filled or covered with toxic materials that you find in mass produced cutting boards sold in every store in the US. The care of the boards is easy and it takes just a few minutes to oil and/or wax them after several uses. I love these cutting boards and highly recommend them. Really terrific.

    Best Cutting Board Ever

    Posted by Jim on 27th Dec 2019

    My wife requested this for Christmas...
    The order arrived on time and I must say it is definitely the best cutting board we have had in our 40 years of marriage. Made from one solid piece of wood and a smooth finished surface. We are happy with this order!!

    I ordered two of these beautiful cutting boards, should last for years and years. I ordered the extra large and medium. I love that they have no glue as it is one solid piece of wood. Very happy with these boards.

    beautiful wood cutting board

    Posted by Unknown on 30th Apr 2018

    A beautiful natural simplicity medium board, no glued pieces like you find in other stores. Only downside is the pricey shipping /handling. After all it is a Canadian base operations. Look at their other works.

    I Wish I Could Give It 10 Stars!

    Posted by Sharon Shelton Colangelo on 15th Mar 2018

    This is absolutely the best cutting board you will find anywhere in the world! I ordered it along with a smaller one with a handle and am thrilled to find that both are all I expected from the reviews and even more. It is first of all beautiful, obviously lovingly crafted, and it is sturdy and safe. I looked for a long, long time for a non-toxic cutting board and had settled for glass, but it was ruining my knives. I knew wood would be better, but I didn't like the idea of the glues and other chemicals used to mass produce them. I think the day I found this website was the second most exciting time in my experience with Urthware; the MOST exciting moment was when I received my two perfect cutting boards! Just one caution: read everything carefully and order the oil to keep your cutting board in top shape. I didn't read everything in my excitement and didn't order the walnut oil with added wax. I wish I had! But I am very happy with my cutting boards and you will be too!

    the perfect cutting board, look no further!

    Posted by Dinamariea@hotmail.com on 26th Aug 2017

    This cutting board is beautiful, easy to clean and the perfect size for the counter space I have. I would highly recommend it to anyone looking for the perfect cutting board. The wood is natural, solid, easy to hold and move around due to the side handles and thickness of the wood. What I also really like about it is the rubber legs that hold it up off the counter and anchors it in place nicely. This is an excellent crafted cutting board and well worth the wait as it is made to order.
