Overview

Unique end-grain cutting boards: a fusion of function and art. Sold throughout North America and abroad.

Bold grain. Varied patterning. Natural colouring. Renowned durability. All are inspiration and part of the story behind our handcrafted larch wood cutting boards and chopping blocks.

We also make flooring, stools and other kitchen and living products. Every product is meticulously handmade using eastern Canadian larch (Larix laricina) by our own in-house local craftspeople to ensure it meets or exceeds our high standards for quality and design.

The durable, self-healing, end grain construction of the Larch Wood board provides a smooth, impact-resistant, cutting action that is kind to knives – making our chopping blocks, cutting boards and countertops a practical choice for chefs in busy commercial kitchens or for daily use at home.

We take pride in bringing to the fore the beautiful wood grain of the larch; each of our products is uniquely and carefully crafted into a piece of functional art. Our boards are just as wonderful to look at, as they are to work on.

Why choose Larch Wood?

Canadian larch, also known locally as tamarack and juniper, grow in abundance on Cape Breton Island. It is a fast growing, tenacious species that can tolerate less than ideal conditions, like wet or recently disturbed soils.

It is a renewable resource that we source from sustainably managed local woodlots.

The wood of the Canadian larch is resilient and durable but also flexible. It was traditionally used in boat building and for other exterior applications such as decking and fence posts. Juniper is also noted for possessing antimicrobial and rot resistant properties making Eastern larch a great choice for kitchen cutting boards, countertops and chopping blocks.
