Larch Wood Cutting Boards make the perfect gift for chefs, home cooks and people who like to entertain. These cutting boards are hand made in Canada from the beautiful ‘end grain’ of Eastern Canadian larch (Larix laricina). This wood is sourced from renewable and sustainably managed local woodlots.
The durable self-healing end grain construction of Larch Wood Cutting Boards provide a smooth, impact-resistant, cutting action that is kind to knives. These boards are a practical choice for chefs in busy commercial kitchens or for daily use at home.
Each cutting board is uniquely and carefully crafted into a work of functional art.
Larch Wood is recognized for its rot resistance, strength and ability to neutralize bacteria. It therefore has all the characteristics needed to produce a superior cutting surface.
Why Choose the Larch Wood?
Canadian larch, also known locally as tamarack and juniper, grow in abundance on Cape Breton Island. It is a fast growing, tenacious species that can tolerate less than ideal conditions, like wet or recently disturbed soils.
It is a renewable resource that we source from sustainably managed local woodlots.
The wood of the Canadian larch is resilient and durable but also flexible. It was traditionally used in boat building and for other exterior applications such as decking and fence posts. Juniper is also noted for possessing antimicrobial and rot resistant properties making Eastern larch a great choice for kitchen cutting boards, countertops and chopping blocks.
