I have read where some do not recommend oak for end grain cutting boards. Has anyone had problems with this?
What about using poplar for these? I have made a couple, however, they ended up sitting on a counter and not being used, so not sure of the durability.

I am not a cutting board builder but I think the reasoning on oak and cutting boards is this: Oak has open pores or open grain and food is easily trapped in those pores. Contamination occurs and food poisoning occurs. A closed grain species should be used. That is what I think I have read on here.

Have your say...
