Beautiful piece of wood, looks lovely in my kitchen.
K. Chaudry
I've used butcher block conditioner or oil on it occasionally, and that keeps it looking nice.
It is worth the little extra expense because you will have this a lifetime!

I love my cutting board. I use it for all cutting and much preparation. It is beautiful, which is a good thing since it stays out on the counter. This thing is huge. Which is nice for a cutting board, but not if you must find a place to store it. Fortunately, I have a lot of counter space, so I don't mind leaving it out. It is also reversible, so you can cut on both sides. I wipe mine down with a damp sponge, and I've oiled it a couple of times in the couple of months that I have owned it. It looks like this might be something that I pass down to my kids.

This board is STUNNING! The craftsmanship is impressive, to say the least. End-grain boards are much more difficult to make. They are much kinder to your knives though and well worth the extra money. This Catskill board is of remarkable quality and exactly what you would expect from American craftsmen.

It's big and I have found when preparing a large meal, I have used every part of it. If you have the space, it truly is the perfect size, giving you plenty of room to work. As a bonus, the thickness adds height and proves to be more ergonomical for me as well being 5'9". The weight is wonderful because as you work, it does not move on you. It is completely reversible if you would need it. I do keep it out on my counter. It would be rather difficult to store due to its size. Before I begin preparing food, I simply mist some white vinegar onto the board and wipe dry to clean it.

When it arrived, it was just as thirsty as others said it would be. I used a different prepping technique. After 3 or 4 applications of mineral oil, which it soaked up instantly, I wiped it thoroughly dry and let it alone untIl the next morning. I then began applying generous layers of walnut cooking oil. Walnut oil is in the grocery section with your other cooking oils. I chose to finish the board off with walnut oil instead of mineral oil because walnut oil is most certainly food safe. Not that there's anything wrong with mineral oil per se, but it is derived from petroleum, which I am fine with it wicking to the center of the board, but I preferred walnut oil at the top most surface where food dIrectly contacts the board. Despite what you may have been told, walnut oil in particular does NOT go rancid. It is a hardening oil. Therefore, you also don't have to wipe off the excess.

After reading the reviews this is the cutting block I decided to go with good or bad this was going to be it. I wanted a nice sized board but man I wasn't prepared for the size of this thing I knew what the measurements were but unless you measure this out on cardboard and place it on your counter the amazon photo will fool ya this thing is what they call it SUPER SLAB.

Ordered on the 5th arrived this morning 7th kudos Amazon. Wow! 30lbs I'am disabled so this board wont be moving around my kitchen I've seen some reviews say the wood had cracks or showed signs of splitting and I don't doubt their claims upon removing from box and shrinkwrap I got out a magnifying glass to get a really good upclose look I could find nothing not even a scratch this board was sanded so finely it kinda has a satin like look just beautiful I havent received my walnut oil yet so one can only imagine how much better this is going to look after a week of oiling.

Nothing bad about this board at all but i havent oiled or used it yet but you can prep a few things on this board at the same time I will say this I've seen some boards that cost twice what this one does are smaller and IMO dont look as nice.

My Sister was here when I took it out of the box first words out of her mouth were "I want one" lol I will update my review after I have oiled this beast

UPDATE: Out of the box you can just start oiling this board however I wanted a really smooth surface so I sanded it using a superfine 400 grit then a 600 grit 1000 grit 1500 grit and finished it with 2000 grit using 5 sheets for each grit two for the top two for the bottom and one sheet for the sides took two days.

I decided to use a roasted walnut oil I like the color it gives the board and it hardens the wood over time.

I know the dimensions are listed, but I was still taken aback when I saw the size of this thing in person. It has quite the presence in our kitchen. My husband thinks it's too large, but I love being able to chop everything for our meal without having to move anything off the board. I wanted a chopping "station" and this is definitely it. It has such a solid feel under the knife as I chop. I received this block as a gift after putting it on my Amazon wishlist. I think it's quite a good value for what you get. I looked high and low for a large end grain chopping block and if you can find them at all, they usually cost hundreds. It's also important to me to buy American made products when possible. My only complaint is that this item is described as "domestic hardwood", which is rather vague. I wish it were all maple, but I don't think it is. I believe the correct way to care for this board is to keep it well oiled at all times, thoroughly scrape the board when you're done using it (with a bench scraper) and only use a damp sponge or washcloth and perhaps a light mist of vinegar or lemon juice to remove stains and odors. Don't try to "wash" it. It's too heavy for that anyway. More people need to realize that wood has natural antibacterial properties. I haven't had the board long, so I will update my review if any defects appear.
