    End Grain Board Examples

    I figured I would start with End Grain blocks as you knife fanatics mostly know the benefits and prefer this board construction method for great reason!

    End grain construction is often compared to a broom or tooth brush where when cutting into the end the wood fibers separate rather than deflect and fracture as they might on face grain or edge grain construction.

    Here is an often cited study that goes into the wood versus plastic cutting board debate: http://faculty.vetmed.ucdavis.edu/faculty/docliver/Research/cuttingboard.htm

    "The project had been conducted before our work began. It revealed that those using wooden cutting boards in their home kitchens were less than half as likely as average to contract salmonellosis (odds ratio 0.42, 95% confidence interval 0.22-0.81), those using synthetic (plastic or glass) cutting boards were about twice as likely as average to contract salmonellosis (O.R. 1.99, C.I. 1.03-3.85); and the effect of cleaning the board regularly after preparing meat on it was not statistically significant (O.R. 1.20, C.I. 0.54-2.68)."

    I could talk about this stuff all day, but figure you'd rather see some pictures of some of my recent work:

    Some seriously good looking boards! Pity that shipping from the USA is so darn expensive.
