The Boardsmith's Essentials are our flagship line of end grain butcher block cutting boards that we’ve been crafting by hand for the last twenty years. Made from solid hard maple, black walnut, or black cherry, each butcher block features a staggered brick pattern, hand-chamfering on all edges and corners, and heirloom quality that stands the test of time. Each board can be customized to your preferences, with feet, finger grooves, a perimeter groove, and even personalized engraving.
