Why Choose One Of Our Arctic Maple Chopping Boards

Our Arctic Maple chopping boards and unique handmade wooden gifts are among our premium items here at The Wooden Gem. This is mainly due to this hard maple wood having an incredibly stable and dense natural structure. With a hardness of 1,45o on the Janka hardness scale. Hard Arctic Maple is the industry standard among chopping board makers. Maple hardwood is more scratch resistant and adverse to impact marks than beech, teak, oak or black walnut. However, it is not so dense that it will dull your knives. Our handmade Maple products include a wooded maple serving platter and a stunning hard maple chopping board. Showcasing designs with soft & delicate finesse with oodles of practicality. Made from stunning Arctic Maple hardwood to last a lifetime! Do you love hosting dinner parties and just fancy some romantic evenings in with your loved one? if so, our wooden charcuterie boards have got you covered!

Planting Trees With The Woodland Trust

So, how can one warrant making wooden goods, fully conscious of its impact on the environment? This has been an important one for me. Since making woodwork my career path I knew choices would need to be made, to rebalance what I would be sacrificing for my happiness in woodworking. I feel the best way for me to feel content in what I am doing, is to give back in some way. So, for every order made, The Wooden Gem will be purchasing and planting a tree. The Woodland Trust will be my go-to, to ensure The Wooden Gem customers are at ease with purchasing handmade wooden goods from me for years to come.
