Use

  • Your board will arrive already seasoned and ready for use. We use a pharmacy grade, food safe mineral oil, followed by beeswax, for water resistance and protection.
  • End Grain cutting boards are more scratch-resistant and easier on knives than other boards, but still avoid using serrated knives

Care

  • Hand-wash with hot, soapy water. Always dry thoroughly.
  • Never soak or submerge board in water, or place in the dishwasher.
  • To help maintain water repellency, apply our Board Butter (or a combination of heated mineral oil and beeswax) to the cutting surface periodically. First clean and sanitize the board, then apply paste with a soft cloth. Rub into the surface and wipe off any excess.

Not my favorite go to board

I would rate the craftsmanship a five and the size is perfect. The reason for the 2 star rating is because of the finger slots, they’re too shallow. I have small hands and when I reach for the board it feels like the board is going to slip out of my hands. Because of this I have only used the board a few times so sad because I had such high hopes and expectations.

Love it. Use it every day. Constant go-to board. Slightest seam separation but not growing larger.

Great Bar Accessory

I bought this along with a full size cherry board a couple of years ago. Though I normally use the full sized board, my wife prefers the sidekick. It is light and nimble and excellent for smaller jobs. After having the sidekick for some time, coincidentally I got into making home cocktails and have found this to be an absolute essential bar accessory now. When I’m making a cocktail, cutting citrus, prepping garnishes, etc. this is my base.

It has held up completely and looks and functions today just as it did when I purchased it. Both the full sized and this board are of the highest quality (I believe that statement gets overused in general but I do not know how the material or craftsmanship could be any greater in this case.) They are an absolute joy to use on a daily basis.

Sidekicks are good to have around

Several years ago we ask Boardsmith to make us several small utility cutting boards. These are easy to move from place to place as you need them. These are beautiful to look and and have withstood daily use with no deterioration-- just achieving a venerable look on the cutting surface.

Recently we bought two Sidekicks so we would have some boards with a juice groove. These are a bit bigger than our earlier ones, and so a bit heavier. They are again absolutely beautiful, and we look forward to them also becoming venerable over many years of use.


Rubber feet

For extra stability & air circulation


Perimeter Juice Groove

To catch messy liquids (on the top side only)


Finger Grooves

For easy lifting

"A superb craftsman"

"This maple butcher block is the most beautiful and useful kitchen purchase I could have made. John Loftis is a superb craftsman who was most accommodating and a pleasure to do business with. Thank you, John, your passion is evident in your work. I will enjoy this cutting board for many years." - Michele K.
