Could I ask from the vast experience of Baren members if beechwood is suitable for woodblock cutting? I ask because whilst strolling through a kitchen store I came across a 12" x 18" x 2" butcher's block. It was constructed by using polished 2"x1" solid "end" grained beech and cost 11 ($19.50 ) a price at least 10 times less than holly or box.
