MATERIALS

Made of Hard maple, it's extremely durable, and wears slowly and evenly. Craftsmen consider it highly "workable" – a pleasure to cut, shape and finish with precision. And it's a very stable wood, which means that it resists warping, cracking, swelling and splitting due to the stresses of temperature and humidity. It also provides a pleasing finish – a smooth, even surface with an attractive luster. Bird's-eye maple exhibits a pattern of hundreds of small oval figures resembling bird's eyes. Only one in perhaps 500 hard maple trees will exhibit this pattern, and experts are uncertain why it occurs. It may result from a fungus, or particular stresses on the growing tree. 

Sometimes known as Cabinet cherry or New England mahogany, black cherry is one of the most highly prized cabinet woods in North America. Woodworkers know why — it seems to cooperate with almost anything you might wish to ask of it. Cherry grain is fairly straight (except for the wavy radiance of curly cherry) and the texture is uniform. The wood has a delightful warm, rich luster that rewards the eye. It yields predictably and precisely to edge tools, and is a joy to work. Once seasoned, it remains dimensionally stable, holds fasteners well, and polishes to a beautiful finish that gets richer and darker with age. A day spent working with cherry is always a good day, and the end result just gets prettier as the years go by.

Award-winning designer-craftsman Edward Wohl makes things of wood that he’d like to have himself: functional and quiet pieces that are a pleasure to touch and admire. Edward has been creating exquisite bird’s-eye maple cutting boards for more than forty years in his Wisconsin wood shop and finds that he is happiest when he is there working with tools of his trade. An architectural background and sculptural aesthetic are apparent in his emphasis on hand selection, structural integrity and function. Each board is cut from a single piece of carefully selected wood giving its own distinct color and grain pattern: coaxing nature to imitate art. Bird’s-eye maple is an anomaly of hard maple. Only one in perhaps 500 hard maple trees will exhibit this pattern, and experts are uncertain why it occurs. The beauty and durability of hard maple make it the perfect wood for cutting boards.
