3 Styles of Cutting/Serving Boards and Countertops
Face Grain is what you would normally see of the "outside" of the board. It's where you see most of the grain and beauty of a piece of wood. Woodworkers typically use the the face grain to make table tops or panels that you might see on cabinet doors.
Edge Grain is the "side" of the board. It's usually the side that woodworkers measure the "thickness" of a board. Finally, End Grain is the end of the board.
Which is better?
Face Grain - best for serving boards where the beauty of the grain really shows through. Best suited for countertops, tabletops, serving boards
Edge Grain - Provides more durability than face grain. Grain is straighter and less figured than face grain. Suitable for countertops and cutting boards.
End Grain - True butcher block style and provides the most durability for cutting. The knives actually stlip through the fivers fo the end grain and keep your good kitchen knives sharper much longer and the end grain is self-healing. Best suiting for cutting boards.
