Our most versatile boards and complex patterns are found in our end grain cutting boards. We choose to use the end grain for all of these boards to ensure a long-lasting quality that can withstand most regular use. The end grain of the wood has the ability to somewhat "heal" itself, similar to the way a dartboard can. Cutting and flipping the grain also allows for the intricate patters you see in a Jack & Jill Cutting Board.
Butcher Blocks are our most heavy-duty boards. Always end grain, they are also typically less intricate patterns only because of their thickness. The Butcher Block line at Jack & Jill tends to be between 2.5 and 3 inches thick with grooves in the sides for handles.
