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 Cherry wood from Northwest Pennsylvania. These 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 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 Board Butter.
Note: prices on cherry lumber have been relatively steady in 2021-2022, rising only 25% or so during that period. As a result, we don't expect major price increases on our cherry butcher blocks.
Built to be beautiful. Built to last.

Cherry End Grain Cutting Board
Quality workmanship. A wonderful bit of woodwork.
I now have three boards from The Boardsmith. One in each of the woods they offer and in three different sizes. There is no comparison to other boards. Prior to finding the Boardsmith I had some pretty nice and expensive boards from nice stores like Williams Sonoma and Sur la Table. While those were good, these are so much better. The quality and details don’t come across in pictures and the quality of the wood is clearly better. Chopping on them is such a pleasure and the knife makes this really enjoyable sound I have not experienced with other boards. I wonder if that has something to do with the custom feet they use (which you should always get in my opinion). If you have good quality knifes, you need a good quality board, trust me this is it. They do require significant oiling (true for all end grain). If you aren’t used to that, you will need to accept it and take good care of the boards. It’s not hard, just need to remember to do it every month.

I bought the Father’s Day special big block and received it within two weeks. This thing is a serious work of art. Just incredible craftsmanship. I have been oiling and buttering like crazy to build up a layer and it is just a joy to work on. Seriously great work. I’m so glad I saved up for as long as I did to get this board.
