Feet are installed on your board to provide stability and air circulation. We strongly encourage this, and most of our customers agree.

If you need your order in time for a birthday, anniversary, etc., please don’t hesitate to reach out at and we'll see what we can do.

Otherwise, we look forward to shipping your board out to you once it is ready!

Freight Damages, Loss, or Theft

NEW: As of November 20, 2023, The Boardsmith is paying for Route Shipping Insurance on your behalf on all orders, including international ones. Route is a third-party insurer on packages. In the event your shipment is lost, stolen (eg porch pirates), or damaged in transit, Route will replace your items at no charge to you. You will contact them directly and they will process your re-order. They also offer additional package tracking services via app. 

Historically, loss, theft, or damage occurs in less than 1% of shipments. Incidents are normally far higher during the Christmas season than at other times of the year. 

International Shipments

Different countries have widely divergent policies regarding taxes, tariffs, VAT, etc. on items shipped from the United States. Customers are responsible for any such fees, if applicable.  

Cherry is the softest of the woods we use and is reported by customers as the easiest on high-quality knife edges. Our boards are crafted with sustainably harvested wood from Northwest Pennsylvania. These cherry wood end grain cutting boards have a rich brown-red color that will darken beautifully with age

Cherry tends to have much more variation in the wood grain, with mineral spots and streaks, small pips, etc. No two are alike. Aesthetically, the wood works best in a traditional-style kitchen. 

Prior to shipping, each cherry end grain butcher block is sanded smooth, given a soak in our pharmacy-grade mineral oil tank for 30+ minutes, allowed to dry overnight, and then buffed with Boardsmith Cutting Board Butter

Our standard butcher blocks are 2" thick. Feet add an additional 3/4" and are highly recommended unless the user is under 5'3" (160cm) in height. 

Built to be beautiful. Built to last.

*Photos are for demonstration only. Yours will look unique due to the variations in natural wood

I love the cutting board!

The quality is outstanding!!

Frederick Labib-Wood
Cherry End Grain 18x12 Cutting Board

Love the color and the quality. I was not planning to do heavy chopping so I kept the feet and use it as a server piece. This color goes well with a family heirloom large cherrywood dining table that my Grandfather made as a wedding gift for my mother in 1945.

Experience joy

This is my second Boardsmith. My first is a walnut sidekick that is too beautiful to use. After that one I rationalized if I had my mass market maple board sanded and I oiled it, it would be good enough.

Of course, it wasn’t. Did I unconsciously sabotage it to justify buying another Boardsmith board? Maybe but not important. What matters is the way my knives glide across the cherry. How effortlessly it cleans up. Its sharp but solid sound when I set my knife down. I’m delighted with it and while beautiful, it’s getting a lot of use. Great tools are a joy to use and this is a great tool.

What more can I say that hasn't already been said? I got the Cherry Big Block and as I waited and kept looking and relooking at the website, kicked myself for not taking advantage of the discounted Sidekick. I emailed John about a week after the initial order and he agreed to honor the discounted Sidekick without hesitation. I ordered the smaller board in Walnut. Both arrived within 3 weeks and are a thing of beauty and function. Zero complaints and I'd love to buy more even though I don't need one; they're that special. Great for yourself, great for a gift. Thanks John and family!
