John Boos’ Classic "AA" Butcher Block Is For True Culinary Enthusiasts As Well As Nostalgia Buffs

Even if you’re not a pro you can chop, pound, slice and dice like one on this professional block from John Boos. It features a 16-inch-thick, hard rock maple block atop four sturdy, square, gently tapered legs. At 34 inches tall, it's the ideal height for food preparation tasks.

Not Just For Butchers, This Stylish Block Features Traditional End-Grain Style Construction

End-grain cutting surfaces hold up better, plus they’re easier on knives. That's because end-grain surfaces are comprised of wood fibers found at the ends of cut pieces of wood. These fibers better absorb the impact of knife blades, helping keep them sharper longer. Also, malleable and forgiving end-grain surfaces are more resistant to nicks and gouges.

These Butcher’s Blocks Come In A Variety Of Sizes

Eight sizes, to be exact, ranging from 24" x 18" up to 40" x 35". Also available is an optional wood knife holder and shield that attaches to the side of the block. It's a handy and safe place to store carving knives and meat cleavers.

The Block’s Surface Is Protected with Boos Block Board Cream

Boos Cream penetrates wood’s fibers and leaves a protective barrier that locks in moisture. You'll want to maintain this finish to protect and preserve the wood, so consider adding Boos Mystery Oil or Board Cream to your shopping cart. The sides and legs of the block are protected with a semi-gloss finish that's long-lasting; is virtually maintenance-free; and allows for quick and easy clean up using mild soap and warm water. You should also consider adding an attractive and utilitarian knife shield to your block. It keeps bladed utensils safe and close at hand.

Order Cancellation

If you decide to cancel your order, please call us immediately. Typically, we are able to cancel an order and issue a full refund if production of the item(s) has not yet begun. If an order is already “in production,” it cannot be canceled for any reason.

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. A 20% restocking fee will apply, since all John Boos products are made-to-order. Plus, you will be responsible for return shipping costs.
