Beech works very well, it seems to be particularly popular in Europe. Simple matter of doing a web search and confirming it for yourself.

Not all hardwoods make good cutting boards. You wouldnt want to use something with a large open grain like oak for risk of nasties getting packed into the crevasses. Closed-grain hardwoods like maple, or in this case birch

I was just wondering, since where I live there is an abundance of beech (eastern KY). Where I used to work we used beech almost exclusively (manufacturing various tool handles and brushes).
