Knife-friendly edge grain cutting boards

We classify dark boards as containing more than 50% dark wood.

Center engravings on the front of carvers makes them very hard to clean. By default we will put the engraving on the back of the board, unless the notes say otherwise.

Edge grain cutting boards rock. Here’s why you’ll love yours.

Edge grain boards are functional & affordable

Edge grain boards require a fraction of the cuts, glue, and time that go into our end grain cutting boards. And yet their construction is more complicated than our flat grain cutting boards. So, our edge grain boards get you a gorgeous, functional cutting board—at a great price.

Edge grain boards are built to last

With proper care, our edge grain cutting boards last years longer than bamboo, plastic, or flat grain cutting boards. That said, if you’re looking for a moderate-to-heavy-use board that your grandchildren can use to prep meals for their grandchildren, then our end grain cutting boards are the way to go.

Edge grain cutting boards are easy to maneuver

Because edge grain cutting boards are significantly less dense than end grain and slightly more dense than our flat grain boards, our edge grain boards strike the balance between quality & maneuverability.


Want the ultimate in beauty, durability & knife-friendliness? See our end grain boards.

Want an ultra-affordable, lightweight board? See our flat grain boards.
Edge grain cutting board with juice groove

Are you feeling the (juice) groove?

Want to keep juices, oils, and loose pieces of food out of your way (and off your countertop) while you’re cutting? Get your edge grain cutting board with a juice groove. Rather maximize your cutting surface area? Get yours without it.

Sweet gum edge grain cutting boards

Our sweet spot for sweet gum edge grain cutting boards

Sweet gum is the core species for our edge grain cutting boards. Sweet gum wood varies from the palest white to the deepest auburn. And that natural diversity is reflected in each board we build, giving your board truly one-of-a-kind character and beauty.

While sweet gum wood might dance all over the color spectrum, its durability, lightness of weight, and natural satiny feel are consistent. And that gives you a jaw-dropping, lightweight cutting board that will last for years.

Edge-grain cutting boards—hand-craftedresponsibly harvested from Texas timber

Every Gum Creek edge grain cutting board is built by hand. But that’s not all. We responsibly harvest, mill, and kiln-dry sweetgum timber from right here in East Texas. Then, we hand-select each plank and hand-craft your cutting board to perfection. Lastly, we apply our all-natural finish, laser-engrave it, and ship it to you.

Straight outta the Gum Creek Catalog

Still like the feel and smell of paper? Well, you won't get that on our website, but here's the product description copied and pasted directly from the print version of the Gum Creek Boards Catalog. So, as you read, just imagine the feel and smell of good ol' fashion paper.

The edge grain cutting board is made from parallel pieces of wood that have been fused together. This is the most common wood cutting board, which looks exactly like you imagined a wood cutting board would look. Edge grain cutting boards are recognized for their durability and lower price. After prolonged usage, the wood cutting board will have cut marks, damaging the aesthetics of the board. However, this can be prevented by applying beeswax or mineral oil on a regular basis.

    High quality, beautiful cutting board. Made the perfect gift for a barbecue guy.

  2. Ashleigh Gibson (verified owner)

    Gum Creek boards are fabulous and have been by “Go To” for wedding gifts! You can have them engraved with what you want. I put names and dates to use as a memory and as a “useful” gift. Something that can last for a lifetime !

  3. Johnny O (verified owner)

    A high-quality cutting board that I trust I will be able to use for a long time. The pattern resulting from the wood being fused together provides an aesthetic touch. It looks great, holds up well and dries quickly.

    FANTASTIC Board! We sent this board to our daughter for Christmas and boy is she happy with it. She has been using a plastic board for a long time and has never been happy with it. This is the best upgrade ever. The wood color is beautiful the groove is perfect for catching ALL the juices. Very satisfied with the product and would recommend to everyone.
    Now for the above and beyond…. here it is Christmas and I fat fingered a 2 into the address when it should have been a 1.. OMG. I called and spoke to Oh gosh… I think Carol… Please I hope that is correct because she was wonderful. My error for sure but she managed to work some holiday magic and get the board delivered to the correct address BEFORE Christmas… Thank you Thank you for such EXCELLENT customer Service. Really I appreciate you for that…
