Sidekick End Grain Cutting Board

Regular price $140.00


  • 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.

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. 


Smaller and lighter in weight, these boards make a great companion to our larger cutting boards. Use around the kitchen for smaller cutting and slicing jobs.

  • Constructed of long lasting end grain hardwood
  • Includes a finger groove for easy handling
  • 9" x 12" x 1 3/8"
  • 3 lb

Beautiful board

I opted for the walnut cutting board and sidekick. I suggest having the feet out on both as I regret not putting them on the sidekick which slips around without them.

The wood is beautiful and the craftsmanship terrific.

Perfect compliment to Carolina Cut

All the aesthetics and functionality of my Carolina Cut in a smaller package that’s a bit easier to fit into my sink for cleaning. I added feet to it after the purchase and would recommend you do the same at the time of purchase provided you’re tall enough to comfortably use it. I reach for it everyday for all the smaller kitchen tasks. In spite of its smaller size, you can get a lot done on one of these!

Sidekick fits in a drawer!

We ordered the sidekick in the same beautiful Walnut wood as our Carolina Cut end-grain. They look great together, and even apart when the sidekick is across the room near our prep sink. It's the perfect size for when we have more cooks in the kitchen! And surprised us that it stores perfectly in the top drawer when we need the counters clear. We also got the feet which makes it so easy to pick up and move. Nice discount when ordered together. You'll be glad you grabbed it too!

Might also be a main character

I love this board! I've owned this board for about 1.5 months, and I got the maple sidekick with juice grooves but no feet (so I could use the other side as a smaller board), and I absolutely LOVE this board. I find myself using this board more often than the 12x18 board (mostly due to it being easier to clean). I use this board multiple times a day, every day, and there is not a single sign of scoring from my knives despite the daily usage. I find this board dries out more quickly than my 12x18 (probably because I use it so much!), so I find myself oiling every few days. Definitely get the board butter, I used it for the first time since getting the boards, and the butter was key to returning the maple to its glory.

Rubber feet

For extra stability & air circulation

Perimeter Juice Groove

To catch messy liquids (on the top side only)

Finger Grooves

For easy lifting

"A superb craftsman"

"This maple butcher block is the most beautiful and useful kitchen purchase I could have made. John Loftis is a superb craftsman who was most accommodating and a pleasure to do business with. Thank you, John, your passion is evident in your work. I will enjoy this cutting board for many years." - Michele K.
