Tropical Walnut Thin Cutting Board Strips

You're in good hands because these cutting board strips are cut from premium kiln dried lumber. They're ready to be ripped or cut to make your own custom cutting board. Be sure to grab 10-20 of these thin strips to build a 10"-15" wide cutting board.

You'll like tropical walnut because of its remarkably consistent and bold cocoa color. The wood is related to the American black walnut that you might be used to seeing, but this variety grows in South America. The wood is slightly softer, much more straight grained, and much more consistent in color.
