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

MADE-TO-ORDER - please allow 2-3 weeks before shipping

As a small, family-owned business, we take pride in crafting each butcher block by hand.

Depending on the number of orders in the queue, it may take up to 2-3 weeks to make and ship your butcher block. 

If you need your order in time for a birthday, anniversary, etc., please don’t hesitate to reach out at john@theboardsmith.com 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.  

Crafted with sustainably harvested Black Walnut. These boards have a deep chocolate color highlighted with black streaks and some lighter-colored sapwood. Some black walnut end grain cutting boards are fairly consistent in color, and others have high contrast between lighter and darker woods

Of the three hardwoods we use, walnut arguably has the highest 'Wow!' factor. In terms of durability, the walnut end grain butcher block has the perfect balance of scratch resistance and gentleness on knife edges

While we can't guarantee any particular look, you are welcome to request a preference in the 'comments' section and we will accommodate if we have one available. Some customers prefer it more uniform and others like high contrast. 

Built to be beautiful. Built to last.

12 X 18,  8-9 lbs

Most beautiful boards!

We bought this during the Black Friday sale which we received a free charcuterie board. After having them for a few months, I can assure you this will be one of the most beautiful pieces in your kitchen. Excellent craftsmanship, it feels like quality and elevates your cuisine. We love our cutting boards! they were not cheap but they are well made and are so beautiful. I never thought I would care so much about something so simple as a cutting board. I felt weird spending that much money on it at first but trust me, it was worth it 100%. Our boards will last forever and are great for the knives.

Walnut end grain board

This board is gorgeous! I researched Cutting boards after reading reviews getting a better understanding of high quality boards. I knew ordering from boardsmith was a great decision! Everything from opening the box to placing it on the counter for the first time felt special. Then chopping on it seriously makes me smile.It lives up to the high quality. Thank you so much!

Beautiful craftsmanship, a functional statement piece.

The board is beautiful, heavy, and quality made. The feet and grooves on the side make handling it far easier than without. The board absorbed a lot of mineral oil the first week and seems to have settled out now. I look forward to many many years of using this in my kitchen.

Excellent Product & Excellent Service

What a great experience! I ordered the Carolina Cut Walnut End Grain board and it’s absolutely beautiful. I asked for a board with similar characteristics as the main one they show on the website and it did not disappoint. I was worried that I might regret not going with the Big Block, but glad I didn’t because this size fits great in my kitchen. Also, the board is heavier than expected. This board means business; I expect it to last a long time with regular maintenance. On top of a great product, the customer service is amazing. (Hard to find these days.) Many thanks to John for such quick responses to my questions via email and for expediting my order and to all involved in making/prepping/shipping the board. Great experience. I’ll likely be back for another!
