This beautiful board is designed to ensure a perfectly stable work surface – no matter how vigorously you're chopping. A wooden lip on either side of the board, attached with handsome dowels, anchors the piece securely on your countertop. One side of the board has a well to collect tasty meat juices.

  • Crafted in the USA from sustainably harvested North American walnut.
  • Edge-grain construction is gentle on knives – and stands up to years of slicing and chopping.
  • Use the grooved side of the board for carving and the flat side for chopping.
  • The handsome board is ideal for serving buffet-style foods from your countertop.
  • Made by John Boos & Co., the leading manufacturer of butcher blocks and respected the commercial cooking industry since 1887.
Dimensions & More Info
  • 17 1/4" x 17 3/4" x 1 1/4" thick.
  • 9 lb. 8 oz.
  • Made in USA.
Use & Care


  • Board should be seasoned with a food-grade mineral oil before first use.
  • To season the board properly, warm the mineral oil slightly and apply it in the direction of the wood grain using a clean, dry cloth. Allow the oil to soak in and repeat with another application. Allow the board to dry and wipe off any excess oil.


  • Hand-wash with hot, soapy water. Dry thoroughly.
  • Do not soak or submerge board in water.
  • Occasionally rub with a food-safe mineral oil to keep wood from drying out.
  • To sanitize, wash the board with a solution of one part vinegar to five parts water.
  • Remove odors by rubbing the board with kosher or table salt and half a lemon. Let sit for 2 to 3 minutes then wipe clean with a damp cloth. Remove excess moisture with a clean paper towel and stand the board on end to air dry.
  • Store in a dry area away from extreme temperatures.

  • Rated 1 out of 5 by from Great design and nice wood but cracks I bought this in February 2017 and it started to form small cracks several months in. Now, the crack has further developed half into the board and made it unusable. I’m not expecting this from Boos’s or William Sonoma

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Buyer beware We had this cutting board for a little over a year before small cracks started forming between the seams of the "checkerboard". I oiled this board with 3-4 coats of mineral oil every quarter for the first two years. We also never cut directly on the board, but use plasticized cutting sheets on top. This board is primarily an accent piece. We are now 4 years in and the cracks have become so pronounced that we will have to get rid of the board completely. It was beautiful. Now, it is not.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from So beautiful BUT I received this and immediately oiled it as recommended. I had it for a little over a week and it CRACKED. You do not expect this from a BOO for so much money. I called Williams Sonoma and they immediately replaced it. I received it yesterday and I really hope I have good luck this time! I oiled it and-------------- Williams is so great to deal with. Love that store!

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Too expensive to CRACK after a few months This would be a 5 star review (the design is clever, the board is beautiful) but the board got a deep crack within months of having it. Now when using the carving board side, rather than the juices being caught by board, they seep and go all over the counter. Wrong for such an expensive board!

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Beautiful but disappointing Was happy to receive beautiful board, but after a month, a deep crack 3" long developed on the edge of the board. Customer service sent a replacement. Careful to keep away from water and heat with the second board and a crack developed 2" inside from edge on replacement board. It's beautifully designed and seems solid, but there is something wrong with the design/product. Frustrating.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Have reservations about recommending This board is lovely, but I'm having some seam warping and splitting, which really makes it unsanitary when food gets in the cracks. I oiled it and thought I took good care of it. I still use, but put a plastic cutting board over it, if there is the least chance of moisture. I also have a problem with food sticking to it like glue. I have to scrape it off with a knife after I've used it….very strange.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome Board This cutting board is very user friendly: it hooks over your counter top and is very stable. I have two other Boos boards and while I love them for their versatility, this one is the best by far. I thought that I would prefer the flat side for most chopping and cutting tasks, but the grooved side totally rules as it catches everything from liquids to solids and I use it more than any flat surface cutting board I own.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Outdoors Cooking This Boos Carving Board is the bomb. I've used and owned several cutting boards over the past 30+ years and never found the same quality. This is a kitchen tool that if you keep it well oiled, could potentially out last the owner and could be handed down to the next generation family chief.
