It is no secret that I love to cook and create recipes and I love having the best tools available to get the job done. My favorite, and I mean absolute favorite tools for my Kitchen are my John Boos boards. They are in one word…. superior. That really says a lot and I so truly mean it. These amazing cutting boards are made in the USA. That is the very first reason I fell in love with them because I knew they would be made amazingly well by skilled craftsmen as well as made to last. These cutting boards are treasures for sure that you will have forever and they are just so gorgeous to look at as well. They are an amazing addition to any cooks kitchen and makes an amazing gift for anytime including the Holidays!
You can see the gorgeous detail of the John Boos Oval Maple End Grain Chopping Block in this side profile shot. It is just so very pretty. I can see myself using this for a cheese and meat tray at Thanksgiving for an appetizer tray. It will look so pretty too and I will have to take some pics! This board is made amazingly well and is created using Hard Maple End Grain Construction and after being made it receives a Boos Block Cream Finish With Beeswax to protect it. This board is awesome in that it is reversible as well! One side provides you with a juice groove for carving and resting meats and the other side is flat and perfect for chopping and dicing. This beautiful piece comes with a stainless steel band and handles and again, as I cannot stress enough, it is all crafted and created in the USA! This is a nice size too as it is 20x15x2-1/2”! It weighs in at 25 pounds! Now That is a big board! It is a masterpiece and you just cannot appreciate the quality and craftsmanship until you see it for yourself. I was in love the minute I took it out of the box.
It is also a good thing to talk about your John Boos Care and Maintenance. If you take care of this piece properly, and who wouldn’t…. then it is so worth taking the time to give your board a little love! It will last forever in return. I recommend purchasing some of the Boos Block® Mystery Oil. This oil is a food-grade oil that easily absorbs and penetrates deeply into the grain of the wood to help protect, revitalize and moisturize the wood fibers. I give it a good application about once a month. It just looks refreshed after oiling it. This is a must have item when purchasing your John Boos Board of choice.
Here are some shots of my board when I unpackaged it…. I was in love!

A Little History On John Boos Boards:
John Boos & Co., based in Effingham, IL is one of the oldest manufacturers of premium quality foodservice equipment and butcher blocks in the U.S.A. Boos has been in business continuously since 1887. It was in his Effingham, IL blacksmith shop that founder, Conrad Boos first invented what would become the original Boos Block®. Having harvested sycamore from local wooded areas, and processed it in his sawmill, Conrad brought it to his blacksmith shop for finishing. That first block of sycamore slab placed on three legs evolved with sheer purpose of a block to absorb the shock of this smith’s hammer against the anvil. It was the local butcher, who having seen and admired Conrad’s block, became impassioned about owning a block for his meat market. Unknowingly, Conrad’s son, John, who having made and sold that first block to the local butcher, took John Boos & Co. into the infancy of the 125 year reign of serving customers in the commercial market sector.
