Product Overview

Our new beeswax only finish washes off your cutting surfaces when you receive it and give it a scrub, which allows you to personalize your cutting board with whatever food safe finish you want, or already use, from whatever company or manufacturer who's finishes you already trust! You use your own finish! Research some good natural finishes so you can have the ready for when you receive your boards!

Due to popular demand for an even larger All Natural Series cutting board made from one solid piece of wood (zero glues) we bring you the Simplicity XL PLUS.

Our All Natural Simplicity Series Line of cutting boards, perfect for all of your medium to heavy duty cutting needs. It is approximately 10.25 - 10.5"" Deep x 24" Wide x (1.25"-1 3/8") thick. (Sizes can vary slightly +-1/4"-3/8" as each of these are custom made from one piece of wood) This is the perfect sized board for someone who cooks large meals for large families, or likes a lot of room to work. 

The XL PLUS is approximately 250 square inches of cutting surface. Compared to our already substantial All Natural Series XL it has 20 % more cutting surface (XL has 200 squ/in XL PLUS is 250 square inches of cutting surface).

The XL PLUS will have limited availability only as lumber is available, and is only available on, so if you see it on our site and would like one, remember, it may not be up on our site the next time you visit so buy them when you see them.

These boards are re-enforced with three high grade stainless steel heavy duty 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 100% in Canada using one solid piece of Canadian Hard Maple (no glue) which is sourced within 100 miles of our facility, and uses other all natural, and completely non-toxic materials.

We do NOT USE A MINERAL OIL FINISH like other cutting boards and wooden kitchen products, as mineral oil is a petroleum based product.

All of our products are finished in a 100% Organic Canadian and USA beeswax from Canadian and US apiaries. 

How it works!  We only put Organic beeswax on your cutting board, that's it!  This allows you to choose the oil or oil and wax finish you'd like to use when it arrives at your home!


What do you do when you get it? Couldn't be simpler.

1. Use the board (or go straight to step 2)

2. Give the whole board a good hand wash with a little soap and a cloth and rinse with warm water. 

3. Wipe it dry with a towel,  then let it fully air dry

4. Apply a few coats of your own finish from whatever company you want to buy from (Yes, even just a straight oil, or an oil/wax for some added protection, and let each coat absorb for a bit (or follow the manufacturers directions for that finish)

5. That's it. You're done. Use it normally. And re-oil/wax as needed



We've been asked so many times to use a host of different finishes.  Many want to make their own, or they've used a specific finish for years.  Some just wipe them down with their preferred oil, some use an oil/wax (board butter)

Our new light coat of beeswax allows you to have your cutting board your way!  Only beeswax, that's all that on top of a natural glue free piece of Canadian hard maple!



Allergy alert * We currently use Coconut oils in our facility as well as the following: Hard Maple wood, gum tree rubber (natural latex), carnauba wax, stainless steel (304), Beeswax. Any and all of these materials may be in or contact your cutting board.





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.


-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 offset our footprint.


*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



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. 

Note on maintenance:

   Maintaining any wooden cutting board with oil and/or oil/+wax is a recommended to help prevent staining, water absorption, and warping and cracking.statement-flaws3.jpg

    The best!

    I searched the internet for a product like this and finally found Urthware. These cutting boards are high quality and worth the wait. I appreciate companies that strive to make the best and safest product while giving back to the earth. I will never buy a different board.

    Great job

    I was looking for cutting board like this for long time. Quality of workmanship is way above my expectations. Worth every penny. Would like that board is little bit wider, but that is personal preference. Great job guys.

    We recently purchased 2 boards and several utensils. The workmanship and quality are spectacular! It's extremely difficult to find truly green products like those from Urthware. Incredible craftsmanship and very thoughtful design.

    Very substantial and quality made

    i ordered two of these boards, one medium and one XL. Both are sturdy and quality made. The XL has rods to help keep the board from warping. These should last the rest of my life.
