John McLeod End-Grain Counter Block

Handcrafted in Vermont by John McLeod Ltd., our hardwood cutting board resembles the thick butcher blocks found in old-style meat markets. Its end-grain construction provides exceptional strength and durability. Handcrafted of yellow birch, the board is gentle on knife blades and endures years of chopping and slicing. End-grain construction provides exceptional strength. Cut-out depressions allow for easy lifting. Also serves as a rustic presentation piece.

Great cutting board
January 22, 2013
I needed a new cutting board for everyday use. This is perfect, I like the feel of the wood against the blade. Very well made, I like the cross design. I did oil it before use.
Pros: Durable, Easy to Use, Quality, Easy to Clean

Awesome cutting board!!!
January 23, 2012
I have had this cutting board for over six months and LOVE it. It has a gorgeous finish and is heavy so it doesn't slide around. I have never had issues with warping (maybe a bad shipment???). I have had boards in the past that have warped, but that's because I did not take care of them properly. I use the Boos Block (mix of beeswax and mineral oil) available at WS about once every couple of weeks to keep the board looking brand new. I do have to say that the plastic feet that are supposed to keep the board from slipping on counters come off periodically, but it sits on a section of counter above our dishwasher causing the glue to heat and loosen the feet. The feet are easily glued back on.
Pros: Durable, Quality, Easy to Clean, Size, Shape, Weight, looks good sitting out!
Cons: Difficult to Store

Poor Quality
January 1, 2012
My kids bought one of these for my Christmas present. The first one was badly marred. I took it back to the store. They had five in stock, only one of which was of acceptable quality. I bought that, and it looked great for 2 days. It then warped to the point where it is useless.
The quality of this item is horrible. Williams Sonoma should not be selling something this poor, especially for this price.
Cons: Quality, warps
