Only a few of the thousands of tree species in our natural world are regularly used to make custom carving boards and butcher blocks. But why are maple, walnut, cherry, teak, and bamboo popular woods while pine, fir, and cedar are not? It turns out that there are many factors to consider when selecting the best raw materials for printed carving boards:
Hard, tight-grained woods should be used to make custom carving boards. The majority of custom carving boards are made from hardwood trees. Hardwoods are flowering plants that are angiosperms. Consider maple, oak, and birch. Softwoods are gymnosperms that account for 80% of the world's timbers.
Another difference is that hardwoods have pores to transport water, whereas softwoods use a different mechanism known as medullary rays. Because of their higher density, they are harder and more durable than softwoods. They are an excellent material for custom carving boards because they do not score easily. Knife cuts and scratches create an uneven cutting surface, allowing bacteria and water to enter the board.
For woodworkers who are exposed to raw materials and wood dust, wood poisoning is a worry. Wood toxicity can cause hypersensitivity, poisoning, and other unpleasant side effects. Whether the wood is suitable for food is brought up even though the average custom carving board user isn't exposed to wood dust. When using rare or exotic woods that are not frequently utilized in carving board construction, it is crucial to remember that oils and resin can leak into the meal you are preparing.
