NOLA Boards uses only environmentally responsible and renewable woods in making our products. Here is a listing of our most popular types of woods.
Prized for its distinctive rich and robust color, black walnut is commonly used in furniture building. It is grown throughout the eastern and central United States.
Cherry is one of the most highly valued furniture building woods due to its strength, beautiful color, easy workability and the incredibly smooth and glossy finish that it displays when properly sanded. It is grown in the eastern United States, mostly in northern and lake states.
Appearance: Light pink to reddish brown with straight, uniform, fine grain.
Aging Qualities: Darkens significantly with age.
Other Qualities: Highly shock resistant.
Maple is valued by furniture builders for its workability, consistency, hardness, and easy to paint surface. It is grown in all over the United States, but primarily throughout the eastern states.
Sapele is a beautiful hardwood that is often compared to (and even marketed as) mahogany due to its rich reddish brown color and denseness. It is grown in tropical regions of west Africa.
Appearance: Textured reddish brown grain with golden hues. Interlocked grain with a fine uniform texture and a nice natural luster.
Aging Qualities: Color will darken with age.
Other Qualities: Very dense and rot resistant.
Cypress trees are iconic in Louisiana, and are incredibly valuable to furniture and home builders due to their remarkable durability and rot resistance. The “sinker” in “sinker cypress” refers to how these logs were pulled from the bottom of a river.
In the late 1800’s through the early 1900’s, when the preferred method of transporting wood to locations downriver from where they were harvested was by lashing the logs together in a crude raft, it was not uncommon for these rafts to break apart and for some logs to sink to the bottom of the river. The cypress logs would lay there for up to a century!
The outer layers of the wood slowly decomposed, but the lack of sunlight and oxygen perfectly preserved the dense, oily heartwood. Sinker cypress is always found in the rivers and bayous of the southern and coastal United States.
Appearance: Varies due to the different minerals the wood is exposed to depending on where it has been submerged in water. Usually the wood displays a rich, glossy yellow and greenish hue.
Aging Qualities: Darkens to a rich, yellowish brown with age.
Other Qualities: Extremely durable and rot resistant. Oily, almost waxy feel to the wood.
The most widely used hardwood in the United States, white oak is grown primarily in the eastern United States.
Appearance: Creamy white to medium brown heart and sapwood. The heartwood often exhibits an olive colored cast. Has an exceptionally straight and uniform grain.
Aging Qualities: Does not darken much with age.
Other Qualities: Nearly impervious to liquids and highly rot resistant, white oak has been extensively used for ship timbers, barrels and casks.
Wooden cutting boards need to be kept clean and daily maintenance is usually a good scrub with hot soapy water after using. Do not soak your boards or any other wooden utensils in water or they'll crack and warp. Absolutely no dishwasher use! Some people use a very weak bleach solution or hydrogen peroxide to clean their boards after they've been used for cutting raw meat as a precaution against bacterial contamination. Depending on how often you use your boards, maintenance should be at least every couple months.
