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 [samsclub.com]

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.

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.
I have the board on my lap sitting in front of me right now. This is an end grain board, you can tell because the pieces match all the way through the board. End grain makes it easier to cut on the board and your knifes will dig just slightly into the board giving you a clean cut through any food.

As I pointed out earlier best to sand the varnish layer off of the board and then add food grade mineral oil. They have a ton of options on Amazon, with the Boos Block being one of the best.

I picked one of these last time they were on Clearance at Sam's for $19.91. The grain on the cutting board split within 3 weeks. Super disappointing because it did look beautiful until I took off the plastic wrap.
Did you oil and maintain it properly? These board are great but you need to oil it every now and then. Cant soak in water, have to handwash.

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?
Yes. Check out those asian market. In my vietnamese asian market we sell round cutting board that is basically just a slice cutting off tree trunk. It is end grain. No glue. They do have metal frame on the outer edge. Will last for years. And cost you around $20

Cảm ơn Anh. Không biết mấy chợ trong phố San Jose have them. I'll check out the stores near by. If I find it, hope they were not chemically treated, or grown w/ chemicals Big Grin

Acacia wood is hard, but when wet it swells and bulges.

Had the same experience. Sat on my counter and after a month It was splitting badly in a couple of areas. I returned it (no prob, got a full refund). At $19 would have taken a chance on a replacement being "mindful" to keep the replacement as dry as possible, but Sam's doesn't seem to do replacements- return/re-buy was all they offered, and this thing just isn't worth more than $20 at most. Sad junk from Viking, very sad (ala trump)

Go this for $20 last time. It definitely has some type of coating/varnish over the wood.

lots of good advice here but also lots of real bad advice. end grain boards are best, but as with anything nice you need to take care of them.

on end grain boards the cells run from the top to the bottom of the board, which means that the knife is slicing between the cells, meaning less resistance and therefore they stay sharper, longer. these cells also draw liquids in easier. this is bad, because if left to its own devices that will eventually warp and crack the wood. this is why you need to oil your board, and keep it oiled. wax away if you want to. that doesn't mean you can't wash them or cut wet items, it just means you need to wash quickly and dry the board. always store the board on its side.

this cell structure is however good for cleanliness. it draws bacteria down into the board, which then die in the anarobic environment. cut raw chicken until your heart's content, then give it a quick wash with soap and water. if you're going to do meat and veggies I'd save the meat for last.

not to say edge grain is bad, but there's a reason a high end board is always end grain. and acacia is not a good wood.

Beware. Nothing to do with current situation. In general they will do anything to cut corners and save a penny. You could be buying a cutting board glued together with anything you could imagine. Good luck.

Seems like I'm wrong. Original post below, but it seems to come down to maintenance to keep wood boards intact and in good condition.

Looking at it, I actually said why would the use the end grain. That looks nice but is going to fall apart if not 100% sealed and maintained.

End grain cutting boards are very popular. They're easier on quality knifes and more resistant to deep scratches which can harbor bacteria. Ppl that have had issues with the integrity of one generally don't know how to care for them. They should not be exposed to high heat for a long time (ie. Dishwasher) and no hard chemicals should be used. Lukewarm water water and a drop of regular dish soap does the trick followed by a light rinse. Oiling it with grocery store mineral oil occasionally is also a good idea.

This is a Butcher Block style cutting board, showing end grain, rather than a classic cutting board. End grain is less durable but more forgiving on the knife edge.

I spray my wood boards with hydrogen peroxide, after I wash them at the end of the night.
