    General Information

    Rare. Solid wood.

    Solid wood is rarely used for cutting boards. Usually the material is sawn, glued and only then further processed. Not so with these solid cutting boards from John Boos in Illinois, which are actually made from one piece. Like the tree, like the wood: The fact that each of these heavy cutting boards is a unique piece can be seen not only in the small irregularities that may occur in the wood surface, but also in the fact that the dimensions may well vary. Since it is still real handwork, please consider our measurements as approximate. A note for you: Boos boards do not have a front and a back. To prevent warping of the wood, you should even use them regularly alternating between both sides.

    Still founded as a blacksmith's shop in 1887, the Boos company soon developed into a woodworking workshop with a national reputation. This may have been pure coincidence, as the specially constructed wooden buffer stop, designed only to absorb the hard blows of the blacksmith's hammer, soon attracted the interest of the local butcher. However, when a few years later the German immigrant Adalbert Gravenhorst bought the company, it had already specialized in the production of chopping blocks for the butcher's trade. These came to Europe for the first time with the Paris World Fair in 1900. Today, you can find especially maple chopping boards from Boos in restaurant kitchens all over the world.

    Product Information

    Article Number 37577

      Made from solid wood. Length 53.5 cm, width 29.5 cm, height 5 cm. The manufacturer treats the wooden surfaces with a beeswax-containing care oil. Please note that occasionally there may still be traces of this oil in the sawdust when you open the packaging; this is not a sign of sloppiness but shows how meticulous the involved craftsmen care for these cutting boards. We offer them in two versions.
