This handsome rectangular chopping block relies on traditional butcher-block end-grain construction to withstand heavy daily use. Made in the USA from solid wood, the 3"-thick block makes a beautiful, enduring addition to the kitchen. Crafted of sustainably harvested North American hard rock maple, black walnut or cherrywood. End-grain construction adds strength and resistance and is gentle on knife blades. Crafted by John Boos & Co., the leading manufacturer of butcher blocks and a staple of the commercial cooking industry since 1887.
