The Butchers Block Series features several different species of wood. End grain cutting boards are designed to meet the same standard demanded by career butchers. The “end grain” style of grain orientation provides the following benefits:
- The Butchers Block endgrain style construction will last upwards of 25 years (even more if you take good care of it)
- The fibers of the wood stand vertically. When you slice into the board you are not severing the fibers. This allows the board in combination with Viridios Cutting Board Finish to be “self-healing”
- Due to the “self-healing” aspect of the board, it will look newer for longer.
- The “end grain” style of grain will also give a darker appearance to the wood.
This Board Features
- Handmade in Canada
- Finished with Viridios Cutting Board Finish
- Both sides can be used

Benefits to rubber feet:
- To prevent moisture from accumulating underneath the board. (This will eventually cause warpage)
- Countertops can be slippery. The rubber feet help prevent the chopping board from moving around while you are using it.
- They add a pleasant design element to the board. Especially when they are being left out on the counter.
Protect Your New Board
All cutting boards made from wood will eventually crack, split, or even gain a permanent odor if they are not properly taken care of. Applying Viridios Cutting Board Finish every 2-3 months will ensure a long life for your board. The process of maintaining and preserving your cutting board is simple:
- Washboard with water and soap
- Dry completely
- Apply the Viridios Cutting Board Finish liberally
- Allow the finish to sit for a minimum of 6 hours
- Buff off all excess wax with a soft cloth
The Viridios Cutting Board Finish can be purchased in the drop-down box next to this description. This product is 100% food safe.

All our wood has variations in the grain pattern, the color of the wood as well as the tone of the board. The color of the wood can be slightly darker or lighter than the picture. Due to the fact that this board is handmade, we must disclose that we allow for up to 1/8 of an inch of variance from the listed size.

All our boards take the "Tree to Table" journey. This is how we do it:
- Muskoka Woodworking takes the time to talk to local arborists and salvage the trees they cut down. These trees would usually be thrown in landfill operations at the municipalities expense.
- After the trees are cut down they are loaded and brought to the sawyer to be milled into slabs.
- We then take the freshly cut lumber and place it in our kiln for 4-6 weeks so that it can be dried to a stable moisture level. This helps prevent the wood from cracking and warping.
- Finally, our woodworkers turn the dried lumber into beautiful boards finished off with Viridios Finish.
We choose to have control over all of the phases wood would normally go through so that we can ensure 3 things:
1. That we never contribute to clear-cutting or the unnecessary killing of trees. We would not claim to be over the top environmentalists or "tree huggers" as some would put it, but simply have found harmony in saving on lumber prices while contributing to a better tomorrow.
2. The highest quality products. We do not have to rely on unknown third party companies to produce premium lumber. Although most lumbermills produce adequate quality lumber we feel in our to stand behind the products we also have to stand behind the lumber they are made out of.
3. Supporting local businesses. We only use local trees from Ontario and Quebec and all the sawyers (people who mill logs) are from Ontario as well.
