Maple End Grain Cutting Board

Regular price $300.00

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.

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.

Top quality

I'm a first-time wood cutting board owner, and I'm so happy I went with Boardsmith. I ordered the Maple End Grain 12x18 board without juice grooves and without feet (so I could use both sides). I was debating between Boos & Boardsmith, but saw so many reviews of Boos boards splitting shortly after use or even arriving split. Not the case with Boardsmith, the board arrived extremely well oiled & buttered - the wood looked absolutely gorgeous and it was wrapped in paper that absorbed some of the oil/butter (definitely a sign these boards are prepped and packaged with care, which I appreciate because these cost a pretty penny). The board came with detailed instructions that I refer back to every once in a while.

I've been using the board religiously (multiple times a day) for about 1.5 months now, and this board is AMAZING. Shows absolutely no signs of knicks from my knives, and no signs of splitting. I already had the oil they recommended, but I'd also buy the Boardsmith board butter. The butter really helped return the board to its original glory. Oiling once a week, and buttering once a month seems to do the job for me.

Rubber feet

For extra stability & air circulation

Perimeter Juice Groove

To catch messy liquids (on the top side only)

Finger Grooves

For easy lifting
