Maple End Grain Cutting Board

Regular price $200.00
/

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

Use

  • 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

Care

  • 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.  

MADE-TO-ORDER - please allow 4-5 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 4-6 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 this out to you once it is ready!

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 boards.

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: maple lumber prices have risen steadily for the last year and a half, increasing 70% during that time. According to our sawmill, prices are expected to continue rising throughout 2022 due to supply shortages and higher transportation costs. We will be making periodic pricing adjustments as our costs increase. 

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 butcher blocks are 2" thick. Feet add an additional 7/8" and are highly recommended unless the user is under 5'3" (160cm) in height.

Beautiful cutting board! I love it. It’s one of those classy upgrades that made me buy a new knife to go with it. It also has made me want to cook more. Cutting up vegetables is now an enjoyable task. I’m very happy with my board!!

Truly Beautiful Board

My cutting board arrived today, and it’s truly beautiful. I was nervous about buying an expensive board that I couldn’t see prior to purchasing. I shouldn’t have wasted the energy on worrying; this board looks lovely on my counter, and the care and craftsmanship that went into making it is apparent. It feels good to support a small family business that takes pride in their products. Thank you Board Smith.
