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!

Damages which occur during return shipping will be the responsibility of the customer.

Defective Items

Defects are described as anything that will render the board unusable such as cracks, splits, or warps. Natural coloration of the wood is not a defect. All defective items will be repaired, replaced or refunded. Defective items accepted for return will be shipped back to us at our expense. Return shipping to the customer will also be at our expense. Returned items must be in the original packaging, sent insured.

Repair, replacement or refund will be at our sole discretion.

Returned items must be in the original packaging, sent insured. Original and return shipping costs of non-defective items will be the responsibility of the customer.

Customer Induced Damage

All items with customer induced damage will not be acceptable for returns.

Special Orders

Due to the customer specific nature of special orders, special order boards are not eligible for returns. 

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. 

 

The best way to care for a butcher block is with a combination of Cutting Board Oil and Board Butter. Chopping board oil penetrates deeply into wood fibers, and board butter is a great surface protectant that also gives the board a nice luster. Our cutting board care kits contain the same board butter we've been making for the last 20 years and the same oil that we soak our butcher block in before shipping them to you. Our chopping board oil has a lower viscosity than some on the market, allowing it to penetrate and protect wood fibers better

Includes Board Butter (a mixture of Beeswax and USP Food Safe Mineral Oil in a resealable tub) and Cutting Board Oil (USP Food Safe Mineral Oil in a resealable bottle).

Available in three sizes - Medium  (4 oz Board Butter + 12 oz Cutting Board Oil), Large (8 oz Board Butter + 16 oz Cutting Board Oil), and Extra Large (8 oz Board Butter + 24 oz Cutting Board Oil)

*As a point of reference, an un-oiled 16 X 22 maple butcher block can typically hold 12-14 ounces of cutting board oil. Boardsmith butcher blocks have been oiled prior to shipping, but they still need heavy initial oiling when you receive them. 

How to use:
  • Thoroughly clean, sanitize, and dry the cutting surface of your board

  • Pour Cutting Board Oil on face of the board an ounce or two at a time until oil can no longer absorb into the board. This process might take a few minutes. Let dry and wipe away any excess. 

  • Using a soft cloth apply a quarter-sized dab of Board Butter and rub in

  • Finish by buffing off any excess butter

This product is intended to be an add on item. Due to the weight of the cutting board care kit, we must charge for shipping when it is ordered on its own. To save on shipping, consider ordering with one of our other items to reach the free shipping minimum.
Note: Because these are consumable items, care kits can not be returned.

The board arrived perfectly. After I oiled it and used it a few times it did crack a little. I reached out to John at the company and he helped me figure out what happened. They were great and are sending me another board. I will keep this one well oiled/buttered.
