The blacksmith used a sycamore tree placed on three legs to straighten horseshoes. The wooden block absorbed the shock of the smith's hammer. When the butcher saw the block where the anvil was resting, he realized he could use one in his meat market. So John Boos made him one and the rest is history. In the early days the butcher blocks were built for commercial meat markets. At the turn of the century meat purchased at the local market was not refrigerated or frozen, but hung.
The company currently occupies approximately 150,000 sq.ft. of total production capacity in Effingham, IL and approximately 65,000 sq.ft. of manufacturing capacity in Philipsburg, PA and Suring, WI, which produce wooden school furniture. The company has four dry kilns that will dry up to 210,000 board feet of lumber on a continual basis. There are 140 employees in the Effingham facility. Most of the hardwoods used for manufacturing is shipped from Great Lakes states via truck, while their second largest commodity, stainless steel, comes from steel warehouses and distribution centers in Chicago, Indianapolis, and St.Louis. The company currently is cutting up about five million feet of maple and oak each year.

I have been very pleased with this oil. I bought a John Boos Prep Table and read that it is important to keep it oiled. It does keep the table looking fresh and new. I read that it was important to use an ample amount of it at each application. I recommend that you do that. It absorbed well and does help to prevent staining.

Used the oil when I received it and it made a wonderful difference in my wood cutting boards and bamboo pieces I have. The all look much richer and more vibrant not to mention they are now well protected. Great product.
Jackie from Chippewa Falls, WI– Verified Buyer
Just got a new butcher block island top installed and it needed to be prepped. After doing some research, I found that this oil has been around for a long time and I decided to try it. I was really pleased with the results. No smells and not greasy, plus it brought out the beauty of the wood. I will certainly get more when needed.

Boos cutting boards

I was so thrilled to be able to find this oil. It's not easy to find. It really does a good job of preserving your cutting board. I have 2 Boos cutting boards and they will last forever if you use the oil.
A "Must Have"

If you buy an authentic takle made or real wood, then this product is a "Must Have" Using mystery oil results in a deeper, richer appearance.
