Subsequently, one may also ask, what is the best wood to use for a cutting board?
The main types of wood for cutting boards are maple, walnut, cherry, beech, teak, and bamboo (which is actually a hard grass).
Beside above, what woods are not good for cutting boards? I would avoid open-pored woods like ash and red oak, which will be harder to keep clean from food stains. Pine might impart a resinous taste, and it’s soft so will show cutting scars from knives more easily than a harder wood like maple.
Also question is, is tigerwood good for cutting boards?
Tigerwood is beautiful, but it’s at 1850. I found another source that says greater than 2000 Janka (if the wood is an Astronium species, a.k.a. goncalo alves or jobillo) BUT remember that hardness testing is probably done on the face grain side and these boards are made with end grain as the cutting surface.
Is Red Oak good for cutting boards?
Wood porosity Some species of trees have more closed pores making them better suited for cutting boards. Wood such as Red Oak has a high rating when it comes to hardness, but has a very porous grain. Woods with high porosity should be avoided as they are more apt to absorb liquid and food into the pores.
