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. 

International Shipments

Different countries have widely divergent policies regarding taxes, tariffs, VAT, etc. on items shipped from the United States. Customers are responsible for any such fees, if applicable.  

Comprised of hard maple on the interior with a walnut border on the outside, these butcher blocks combine attractiveness with durability.

Be sure to order your maple and walnut butcher block well in advance, as these are labour intensive and made-to-order. Allow for several weeks prior to shipping.

I could not be more pleased with this cutting board. It is even more awesome than I thought I would be. Definitely an heirloom! I intend to take great care of it.

My niece loved the board!

John Sindell

John, As you know, this is the sixth board I have purchased from you, and I will be ordering a seventh soon. These boards are works of art and incredibly functional. Each one is unique and incredible. I kept three boards for myself and have given a board to each of my married children so far, with one to go. Everyone LOVES their boards and use them daily. After years of use, my boards still look brand new when I oil them up with coconut oil. Thank-you again, for your commitment to producing the finest boards out of gorgeous wood at a reasonable price. - John Sindell

The Mercedes of cutting boards

I absolutely love my board - quality and workmanship are fantastic. It’s obvious that the Boardsmith cares deeply about what he’s doing and I’m thrilled to have one these boards. They’re not only gorgeous, they’re also highly functional - thick, heavy, and stable.

The Best Cutting Board Company

I've had two of these so far. Hands down the best end grain cutting board. Because: first and foremost, looks great! The build quality is phenomenal, there are no gaps vs some that you'll roll the dice with on Etsy. This board will also not damage your knives. I use very thin high end kitchen knives and the end grain construction as well as the type of glue that is use means years of use without worry of damaging your kitchen cutlery. Last but not least, this board will last a lifetime and you could hand this down to the next generation.

Rubber feet

For extra stability & air circulation

Perimeter Juice Groove

To catch messy liquids (on the top side only)

Finger Grooves

For easy lifting
