Is there such thing as a solid wood cutting board?

I wanted to stop using plastic board because I thought that cutting out little plastic pieces may stick to food. So I bought a wood board. Now I'm thinking, there's glue or resin used to hold the wood pieces together that gets cut into.

Any reason why we can't just buy a non-treated 2x12" cedar or redwood, and cut it to size as a cutting board?

Edit1: Found from a search: Home Depot has a DIY "How to Make a Cutting Board". They recommend dense hardwoods such as maple, walnut and cherry.

Some time ago, I bought a red, hard plastic cutting board that I use for all the meat. The color is an obvious reminder, and it gets washed in hot, soapy water after use, never co-mingling with veggies or anything else.

I've used a 1" maple cutting board for years now. After it gets grooved, I break out the palm sander and grind it down to a smooth surface then reseal with some oil. Going strong for something like 15 years now. Acacia is not that durable of a wood, at least based on some Ikea furniture that I have, but maybe it's a different part of the tree?

End grain cutting boards are NOT the preferred cutting boards. End grain boards tend to soak in more liquids and have a tendency to expand and disengage the glue joints causing splitting. Furthermore, these boards have to be oiled to keep them from drying out, and end grain boards tend to soak more oil. The best board to go with is a Teak board that is durable, cuts smoothly, and doesn't dull your knife. I've been using my same board for about 8 years. Proteak Edge Grain Teak board.

I picked up 3 of these cutting boards over christmas time when they were $20 each. One for myself, parents, and daughter. I use this board a ton, lots of space for cutting. I use this for everything but mainly cutting up meat. This board is huge and heavy, it really would not fit in a dishwasher well because of the thickness and you never want to do that anyways.

I did sand the top with a palm sander to remove the coating layer and applied a coat of mineral oil and wax. I do a ton of cooking and so does my daughter and these have held up very well. I really do love this board and was a steal at $20. I would buy over at $40 if I did not already have one.

Junk, bought one from Sam's the last time it was on a deal and it literally started splitting after maybe a little over a week.

Like others are saying, the quality is dubious. You can buy this, but you'll need to go to Sams and go through them to find one that was made well with no cracks or anything. I grabbed mine from the pickup area, wasnt happy, went back to the display and went through them (took awhile!) to find a good one. We've been happy with that so far, bought it back around Xmas.

Wow, this is a good price. I have recently made my self an end grain cutting board using maple and cherry. Wood itself cost me about $60.
I would expect you May have to season it yourself. It will soak a tons of oil.

The amount of conflicting, anecdotal evidence in this thread is making my head spin.

So I rub baby oil on the plastic board to absorb bacteria to dull my expensive knives?

These videos from America's Test Kitchen might help.

Totally off topic, but there is a Russian guy who makes incredible end grain cutting boards. Search for MTMWoods on YT. Some are legitimate works of art.

Buyer beware...

According to the reviews, this is NOT a real end-gain board. Instead, this is either veneered or has a printed pattern.
See this review, and others:
https://www.samsclub.com/p/viking...F216083251

Looking carefully at the reflection/glare off the board in this photo, specifically, the area between the bread, it seems like there might be truth to that.
https://scene7.samsclub.com/is/im...?$DT_Zoom$

Photo reviews on amazon make it seem like it truly is an end grain board, but that it has a thick varnish on it.
The best finish for a cutting board is repeat oiling. No varnishes, polyurethanes, or lacquers.

There is...if you can find one that imports directly from the source. Once they cut down the tree, the use thin-blade saw to cut them into 5-inch or so slabs.
They are not glued together. I know coz we owned one when I was a younger Stick Out Tongue
