Ash End Grain Cutting Boards

Ash is a beautiful North American Hardwood. The Emerald ash borer (Beetle) has killed millions of ash trees in 30 states. It was first discovered in Detroit, Michigan in 2002. Ash is widely used to produce baseball bats, shovel handles and for us, cutting boards. Most common is White Ash and Dark Ash which produces a very cool mixture of creamy textures interlaced with rich dark growth rings. Once the ash logs are cut, they are placed in a kiln to properly monitor the moisture content and dry the wood. Kiln dried wood is one of the only ways to kill any and all insects within the wood.
