No matter what stage of life you’re in, there’s always that couple in the back of your mind that is THAT couple. The dream team, the impossible happy ending, the couple to end all other couples; a pairing so strange and yet so perfect that it seems unreal. Maybe it’s a celebrity couple, maybe it’s a pair of book characters…or maybe it’s a cutting board. White Oak and Sweetgum are the dream team of the cutting board world, and your Mixed White Oak and Sweetgum Cutting Board from Gum Creek Boards will set that team on your kitchen’s stage.
With White Oak’s stability, elegance, and durability, these combined boards have a mature, businesslike element that brings self-esteem to the saddest kitchen. However, Sweetgum’s bouncy energy adds a wonderful element to White Oak’s grace. Sweetgum wood varies in color from paler than its partner White Oak to a deeper red than Red Oak, and it’s never certain what hue each unique board will include. Further, Sweetgum is a lighter wood than White Oak, so while these cutting boards are still stable, they won’t be overly heavy to carry.
While White Oak’s workability leads to beautiful engravings, Sweetgum has a natural satiny touch that denotes both glamor and a hint of the refined grace of its partner, White Oak. Altogether, these two woods make a perfect match for a cutting board no one could help but admire. Gum Creek offers several types of styling choices to create the ideal Sweetgum and White Oak cutting board to perfectly fit into your unique kitchen setting and cater to your culinary needs. White Oak and Sweetgum cutting boards can either be cut in edge or end grain. Edge grain is a harder cut, but it also stresses knives more than end grain. Both types come in the beautiful combination of Sweetgum and White Oak and portray the unique grain of each wood. Gum Creek boards had multiple different sizes of White Oak and Sweetgum cutting boards available, all specifically designed to meet your particular cooking needs. These include: Prep, Small, Medium, Large, and Carver. Also ask us about our custom engraving service.
