Boos Premium Butcher Block Products Date Back to the Nineteenth Century
Specifically, it was 1887 when the Boos family made the very first butcher block, although it was really a block built for blacksmiths, who required an extra-strong work surface for serious pounding. Only later did butchers discover the versatility of those early wooden blocks. Nowadays, home chefs and professionals alike understand the virtues of Boos Blocks. They’re the blocks, tables, carts, cutting boards and countertops of choice, bar none.
