How often do you think of your cutting board? If you’re like me you look for the intersection of price and quality. A cutting board that can absorb your knife blade, while leaving enough money in your pocket for dinner. If those two ideas intersect, you’re happy. At Muskoka Woodworking, cutting boards are more than just tools; they’re art pieces.

Walnut With Maple Accent Cutting Board — $94.99
This board is cut from maple and walnut with an extreme focus on design and aesthetics. This board could be the set piece in any kitchen. All boards are 100% food safe and produced from ethically sourced Canadian lumber, and of course, fully customizable.
Did I mention that each board comes with rubber feet? These are essential to keep moisture away from the backside of the board, and provide extra stability on smooth countertops.
Butchers Block Series — Mixed Woods — $139.99
This board offers the ultimate mix of woods meeting the high standards of veteran butchers. The “end grain” style of this board offers several benefits, including a lifespan of over 25 years.
