Freight Damages, Loss, or Theft

As of October, 2022, The Boardsmith is using allowing customers to purchase Route Shipping Insurance as 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. This insurance is entirely optional and The Boardsmith does not profit in any way from the service. If you elect NOT to get shipping insurance, and if your order is damaged, lost, or stolen while in transit, you are agreeing to assume liability for that loss or damage. 

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


Known for its lasting strength and durability, maple has long been the traditional wood used for cutting boards and butcher's blocks. We use sustainably harvested (certified FSC) premium-grade maple for these beautiful blonde colored end grain cutting boards.

Prior to shipping, each maple 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 Cutting Board Butter.  

Built to be beautiful. Built to last.

average weights of butcher block (after oiling) are:

12 X 18,  9-10 lbs
16 X 22, 18-19 lbs
18 X 24, 23-24 lbs

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

The Best

This is the best cutting board I've ever owned. I cook dinner almost every night and this board makes prep easy. Although the board now is stained from constant use, it otherwise has no chips or scratches from my knives. Although it's thick and heavy, the hand groves make it easy to carry or move. I also liked the option to get a board made with a juice groove. As a plus, the board itself is very attractive.

I love my new board. 16x22 end cut, juice groove, handle grooves, no feet. It was delivered inside the promised time and packed beautifully. When they say keep your board well oiled, they mean it. My board developed a small wobble and John emailed me right back with instructions on how to fix it. It worked like magic. Super fast, responsive customer service. Just can’t say enough how much I love my board. It’s a beaut!!

Beautiful but not robust

This is a beautiful board that serves its purpose as a solid cutting board. Initially I ordered one without feet. Within the first 2 weeks, it developed a crack at one of the edges. I was promptly sent a replacement at no charge, this time with feet on it. I followed the instructions carefully, oiling throughly the first week and still at least once a week after that first week, using board butter as well. We used Palmolive and cool water only and wiped down immediately. However, despite all this, two large cracks have developed within the first 4 months. We do use it a lot, every day, so it's getting pretty frequent use. It's possible we're not perfectly using it, maybe letting moisture from food on it for too long, but with frequent oiling and waxing, if even that is not enough, then I think maybe these boards might be not robust enough for people who cook a lot. The customer service was excellent though and the boards are truly beautiful and look well made, but I wanted something more than a showpiece and I don't think this board will survive the year. Something to consider.
