I recently saw a website where a hardwood retailer was selling cutting boards as well as maple countertops. He had pictures of several styles on the web page, and many of the cutting boards were accented with different widths of walnut either in the middle, or wider walnut pieces on the edges. The primary wood was maple.
I've never seen walnut used in a cutting board. I'm thinking the large pores of walnut wouldn't be good for use in a cutting board, where food could be lodged in the pores. However, it looked really cool, and I have a bunch of shorts of maple and walnut, and I'm thinking I could whip out a few cutting boards for Christmas presents.
What do you think of walnut in a cutting board? Good? Bad? Neutral?
