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


  • 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


  • 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.

My niece loved the board!

John Sindell

John, As you know, this is the sixth board I have purchased from you, and I will be ordering a seventh soon. These boards are works of art and incredibly functional. Each one is unique and incredible. I kept three boards for myself and have given a board to each of my married children so far, with one to go. Everyone LOVES their boards and use them daily. After years of use, my boards still look brand new when I oil them up with coconut oil. Thank-you again, for your commitment to producing the finest boards out of gorgeous wood at a reasonable price. - John Sindell

The Mercedes of cutting boards

I absolutely love my board - quality and workmanship are fantastic. It’s obvious that the Boardsmith cares deeply about what he’s doing and I’m thrilled to have one these boards. They’re not only gorgeous, they’re also highly functional - thick, heavy, and stable.

Mike Mortenson
The Best Cutting Board Company

I've had two of these so far. Hands down the best end grain cutting board. Because: first and foremost, looks great! The build quality is phenomenal, there are no gaps vs some that you'll roll the dice with on Etsy. This board will also not damage your knives. I use very thin high end kitchen knives and the end grain construction as well as the type of glue that is use means years of use without worry of damaging your kitchen cutlery. Last but not least, this board will last a lifetime and you could hand this down to the next generation.

Rubber feet

Perimeter Juice Groove
