Meet my new favorite possession, a walnut cutting board

Just yesterday, I received this beauty from J. Aaron.

Look at this grain!

I have a weakness to end all weaknesses for Walnut. It is, without a doubt, my favorite wood species and J. Aaron does amazing things with it.

Here's a counter sample they sent me too. It's also Walnut and features their London edge. It's a softened ogee and it looks spectacular.

J. Aaron doesn't stop with Walnut though. They work in Maple, Bubinga, Sapele, Cherry, Brazilian Cherry, Iroko, Teak, Zebra Wood and Wenge too.

What's more, they work in concrete for both counters and trough sinks.

They have an artisan's eye for the products they manufacture, they'll sell directly and they do custom work from their Scottsdale, Georgia location. If my new cutting board is any indication of their dedication to what they do, and I believe it is, give J. Aaron a consideration the next time you're looking for counters. Look over J. Aaron's website, you'll be impressed.


  1. What a beautiful cutting board. The wood is just so luscious, and the samples of edge profiles are just marvelous, too. Off to check out the site of the sender of that nice piece!

  2. Walnut is definitely one of my favorite woods. One of my early projects was a vanity for my wife of maple and walnut. I also made an eight-foot-high entertainment center for the bedroom of walnut. It's just a 25" TV, but my wife ends every day in the bedroom, all snuggy in her bed, watching her TV!

  3. So pretty! I love walnut, too! I love the striping of Sapele, too. I'll have to check them out. Thanks for sharing.
