This Maple End-Grain Butcher Block from John Boos Features Slots for Carving Knives

This stunning chopping block comes with two slots that house paring or cheese knives and a sloped cutout that accommodates their handles. It’s the safest way to keep knives where they’re needed most – right there in slots cut in the board. With knife in hand, make good use of the board’s spacious cutting surface, which measures 12 inches square, including space dedicated to the knife slots.

Use the Hand Grips Carved in Two Ends to Flip This Reversible Cutting Block

Adding to this remarkable butcher board's convenience are grips carved into two ends. Slip your fingers into these grooves and get a good grip on this 3-inch-thick block. You’ll need a firm grip in order to raise and flip this substantial board, which weighs 13 pounds.

End-Grain Butcher Block Provides a Sturdy Surface for Chopping, plus an Exquisite Look

The surface of an end-grain board resembles a checkerboard, but shows color and texture variations you'll never find on any game board. Each rectangle on the butcher board displays the fibers at the END of a strip of maple wood which has been sawed. In aggregate, this grid of maple ends shows a diversity of colors and grain patterns for which end-grain blocks are renowned. An added benefit is that the fiber-rich surface that results can take a beating from sharp edges without suffering serious scarring and without markedly dulling sharp edges that contact it.

John Boos & Co. backs up its products with a one-year warranty against defects in material and workmanship.

Boos will either repair or replace a product determined to be defective. This warranty does not apply to damage resulting from normal wear and tear, accidents, abuse, neglect, misuse, alterations* or exposure to extreme conditions. Nor does it pertain to wood products ordered unfinished. Neither Boos nor Butcher Block Co. will be liable for any loss or damage arising from use of products or for any consequential damages.

*Cutting into a Boos countertop (e.g., trimming its length or width or executing a miter cut or a cutout) will void the manufacturer's warranty.

Precision Warranty

Boos warrants that the exact length, width and thickness of any countertop will not vary from specifications by more than 1/8 of an inch.

Returns & Exchanges

If you are unhappy with your purchase for any reason, you may return or exchange it within 30 days of the date of purchase. Since all John Boos products are made-to-order, a 20% restocking fee will apply and you will be responsible for return shipping costs. Custom countertops cannot be returned or exchanged unless the goods arrive damaged and the word "Damaged" was written on the bill of lading or other receipt of shipment.  

Lowest-Price Guarantee

If you find the identical, brand new product for less (including shipping & handling) on another website within 3 days of your purchase, email us the URL of the webpage where you found the lower-price offer. If the online seller is an authorized John Boos dealer, we will refund the difference. Butcher Block Co. will not always be able to match a lower price offer (e.g., in cases where doing so would violate legal agreements between us and our manufacturer-partners) and any refund may be limited (e.g., in cases where the competing offer is below our total cost).
