Fame never comes without reason. People like Elvis Presley or George Washington reached the pinnacle of human adoration because of their skills in music and being the first president of a democracy, respectively. In the same way, there’s a superstar among hardwoods, and its name is Red Oak. Red Oak has been a staple in Western homes for generations because of its many excellent qualities. Woodworkers applaud the wood for the hardy resilience and workability that makes it such an excellent candidate for hardwood fame. Used in cabinets, paneling, floors, interior finishing, and so much more, Red Oak makes exceptional cutting boards because of its close grain, stability, and compatibility to styling.
Red Oaks (the trees) are encouraged by the Arbor Day Foundation to be planted by families who want a tree on their property to last for a century…or five. With branches stretching to the heavens, these majestic oaks are a dazzling sight whether in a forest of similar hardwoods or standing alone in a backyard. Similarly, our unique cutting boards will stand out in your kitchen. Your Red Oak Cutting Board is built to last for thousands of meals and give your family a beautiful—and useful—kitchen accessory.
Gum Creek Boards offers several types of styling choices to create the ideal Red Oak cutting board to fit perfectly into your unique kitchen setting and cater to your culinary needs. Red Oak 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 rich autumnal colors of Red Oak and portray the intricate grain of the wood. Also available are multiple different sizes of Red Oak cutting boards, all specifically designed to meet your particular cooking needs. These include: Prep, Small, Medium, Large, and Carver.
