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.

Cutting board is cutting edge.
John from Milford, PA– Verified Buyer
Great board, excellent weight for balance,with no assemble required.
neal from san antonio, TX– Verified Buyer
This cutting board is big and heavy. That is NOT a con, but a plus. It doesn't slip. It is also very pretty. Very solid, but easy on knives. HINT: It is dry; be sure to put mineral oil or beeswax on it.
Barbara from Tucson, AZ– Verified Buyer
Purchased to use as base for my Coffee brew station... It works great... Make sure you apply your mineral oils, so no stains can surface...
BoosBlock is the best!
Paula from Cranston, RI– Verified Buyer
This is a great cutting board, it is heavy duty and nice to look at. It gets the job done and the finger handles are great for maneuverability. It does take up a large amount if counter space.
