  • 1.25" thick
  • End grain construction for heavy duty cutting, gives more longevity to all your cutting tools
  • Multi-functional board, serves as a prep station, cutting and serving board
  • Made from beautiful and sustainable acacia wood
  • Wash your Ironwood products in warm water and soap.
  • Towel dry. Prop up to allow the wood to fully dry. 
  • Never submerge acacia wood in water or put it in the dishwasher!
  • Regular oiling will help to maintain the deep luster of the Acacia wood and ensure your Ironwood products last for years to come. 
  • When your Ironwood cutting board first arrives it will be thirsty, oil your board once a day for the first week to "season" the board.
  • Once your board is seasoned, oil it once a month for the first year, and at least once a year for life. 
  • Our food-grade blend of mineral and citrus oils is great at preventing cracks. 
  • Don't use an oil that can go bad like olive or canola oil.
  • To deep clean and deodorize your board or bowl make a paste with coarse salt and lemon juice.
Apply Salt: Sprinkle the cutting board with coarse salt like kosher salt.
Scour the surface: Using a lemon half with the cut side down, scour the surface while squeezing to release lemon juice.
Let sit, then scrape off: Let sit for at least 5 minutes, then scrape away the dirty liquid using a bench scraper or metal spatula.
Rinse: Give the surface a final rinse with a clean sponge. Prop up to dry.
  • It is highly unlikely that your board will warp if you avoid submerging it in water and oil it regularly.
  • If your board warps, wet the warped side of the board and place a heavy object on top and let gravity do its thing. A glass baking dish that is a similar size as the board works well. 
  • Feel free to contact us at with any questions.

the Charleston End Grain cutting board is beautiful. I almost hate to use it for fear of harming it!

Cheaply made, broke twice

I bought one of these boards because Kenji Lopez-Alt plugged them in his book The Food Lab. I bought some of Ironwood's branded board oil and meticulously followed all the instructions for oiling it; Starting with every day for the first week, once a week for the first month, not leaving it in water, etc . Within about a month, the board had cracked (delaminated?) into one side. I contacted Ironwood, and they were kind enough to replace it... once. About 7 months after receiving the new board, following all the exact same care instructions, the replacement board cracked in the exact same way. I contacted Ironwood/Fox Brands for another replacement and they said they would only replace a maximum of one board. For a decently expensive board like this, I had much higher expectations, both of the board, and of the company. Sadly, I will not be buying or recommending this brand to anyone else.

Beautiful board

The board was exquisite!! Gorgeous grain and directions on taking care of this board will make it extremely easy to give as a Christmas Present. My daughter will love it!

Could use some sanding and drinks a lot of oil, but the price is unbeatable

Wow, this is a thirsty board; it drinks mineral oil like nobody's business without any signs of being saturated after two days. The surface is also rough enough that it'll tear little fibers off of paper towels.

Still, eventually it'll have its fill of oil and sanding was a very easy task. For the price it's going for, I think it's still mostly worth it.

So far so good

The difference in quality between this cutting board and other end grain boards is not immediately obvious but the differences are there. My board came in good shape and did not have glue everywhere as others have noted. The surface did come with some sanding marks on certain parts of the cutting surface. Now wishing I had a go at it with my sander to smooth it out more. Not a big deal and does not affect the performance. Time will tell how it stands up over time but so far it seems well worth the $60.
