No seriously.  They can be.  Roses come in a variety of different colors.  Most popular (especially for Valentine’s Day) is red.  They can come in pink, yellow, sterling and white.  Did you know that wooden cutting boards can come in a variety of different colors as well?  Most wooden cutting boards you see is usually light like beige-ish or dark.   But woods, especially hardwoods come in not only in a variety of different types of trees but also in an array of gorgeous colors.  Can you believe nature gave them their colors?

Look at a few we’ve made from beautiful hardwoods.

Paddle Cutting Boards

One of the dark colors you see in the paddle cutting boards that is brownish red is otherwise known as Brazilian Cherry.  Cherry hardwood grown in Latin America.  The darker brown wood is Walnut grown here in the United States as well as globally same with the lighter color hardwood which is Maple.  Stunning isn’t it?  I still can’t get over how nature gave them their color.

Purple Heart End Grain Cutting Board

Sometimes leaving the wood under the sun, oxidizes the board and the natural color becomes even more brilliant like purple heart.  The more it sits under the sun, the more deeper purple it gets.  Want to the colors come out more?  Add mineral oil.  You’ll be amazed!
