There’s nothing quite as powerful as family members uniting together. The same truth is seen in Gum Creek’s Mixed Red Oak and White Oak Cutting Board. Red Oak and White Oak are both very common types of wood, and the trees that provide the wood for Gum Creek’s cutting boards grow from the ultimate North (Canada) to the ultimate South (Texas and southern Mexico). Just as the trees themselves are incredibly attuned to thriving despite diverse weather, the wood that our cutting boards are created from is naturally suited to last through practically any challenge. Like two brothers joining hands against life’s struggles, the two hardwoods are a power couple together not quite like any other in reliability, readiness, and radiance. Both types of Oak are incredibly popular in Western homes because of the workability that enables gifted woodworkers like those at Gum Creek Boards to craft these woods together, as well as their hardiness over the years. White Oak especially is incredibly durable, but Red Oak is also durable and the deep red hues compliment White Oak’s natural elegance in a unification of woodworking art. White Oak is also easier to engrave than Red Oak, but engravings will look striking on the combined cutting boards. Both White and Red are heavier, more stable hardwoods, so these boards are doubly built to serve your family through countless wonderful home-cooked meals.
Gum Creek offers several types of styling choices to create the ideal Red and White Oak cutting board to perfectly fit into your unique kitchen setting and cater to your culinary needs. White and 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, combined with the elegant paleness of White Oak, and portray the intricate grain of both types of wood. Also available are multiple different sizes of White and Red Oak cutting boards, all specifically designed to meet your particular cooking needs. These include Prep, Small, Medium, Large, and Carver.
