J.K. Adams: A 2nd-Generation, Family-Owned Company

Kitchen storage solutions by J.K. Adams make it easy to save on valuable kitchen space while enjoying the best of USA-made craftsmanship. The family-owned company provides everything from pot hooks and spice bottles to wooden spice carousels, kitchen-knife blocks, bread boxes, wine racks, pot racks, and more. J.K. Adams' wooden kitchen items feature renewable and sustainable wood in Maple, Cherry, Walnut, Alder, Ash, or Hickory varieties. A thoughtful choice for gift giving, the high-quality kitchen items provide sleek designs and convenient functionality for year after year of everyday convenience.

Innovative Kitchen-Storage Solutions

In the late-1970's, when the gourmet-chef-tools market in the U.S. was still in its infancy, J.K. Adams owner Malcolm Cooper, Sr. conceived of the first slanted knife block. His goal was to create a cutlery organizer that would hold knives at a low enough angle that they could be easily removed from the block when it was pushed back under a cabinet overhang. The J.K. Adams Kangaroo knife block was launched in 1980--the first-ever slanted knife block, and still the best.

Recognizing the many opportunities to improve kitchen storage, J.K. Adams introduced the revolving "carousel" spice rack in 1982 followed by countless other well-designed storage products in the years since, including the popular in-drawer knife tray in 1994, a space-saving alternative to the knife block that offers the same safety and blade protection.

In 2011, J.K. Adams takes cutlery storage to a new level once again with the new Universal knife block. For over 30 years, J.K. Adams has continued to lead and inspire the kitchen storage market with their innovative designs, superior hardwoods, and exemplary craftsmanship.

Today, J.K. Adams continues to provide innovative designs, superior hardwoods, and high-quality craftsmanship.

J.K. Adams: Over 65 Years of New England Yankee Craftsmanship

Some of the world's finest woodworkers can be found in New England. The rich heritage and folklore of the great Yankee Woodworker is as well known today as it was hundreds of years ago, and the craft has been handed down through the generations. J.K. Adams' success is certainly attributable to the early Vermonters employed by the company while in its infancy who brought forth the techniques and quality craftsmanship that could only come from generations of shared knowledge and experience.

The J.K. Adams factory has been at the same location since the beginning. As many as three generations of families have relied on J.K. Adams to provide for their families. Located in a rural area of Vermont, J.K. Adams remains one of the largest employers in the area and is an important pillar of support for the local community.

J.K. Adams has always used the creativity and skill of their workforce in developing new products, and today J.K. Adams continues its New England craftsmanship with a wide variety of cutting boards, as well as wooden salad bowls, kitchen islands, and slate serving trays. And at the J.K. Adams factory, you'll find future generations of woodworkers building upon the traditions begun over 65 years ago.

Cutting boards and other products by J.K Adams are made in the North America.


About J.K. Adams' Logo

In colonial New England, three strokes of a broad ax were used to mark the finest trees in the forest for the Queens' Navy shipmasts. The broad arrow was adopted as our logo because it symbolizes the exceptional quality of wood that goes into our products.

J.K. Adams' Company History

  • Started over 65 years ago in a small garage in Dorset, Vermont
  • Cooper family purchased business from founder Josiah K. Adams in 1949
  • Began with the Speedy Racer toy, and then followed by manufacturing drafting and surveying tables, Kiwi shoe groomers, gifts, and furniture
  • Now the leading supplier of wooden storage and food preparation products for the specialty housewares industry

Our Wood

  • Maple, Cherry, Walnut, Alder, Ash, and Hickory
  • Either from New England or other North American sources
  • Renewable and sustainable
  • Hard and durable, yet forgiving to knife edges

Wood Grains

End Grain
  • Prized for look and longest wear
  • Identifiable by small pieces put together
  • Board usually thick and heavy
  • Many pieces, lots of glue joints, cracking can be a problem
Edge Grain
  • Most common in cutting boards
  • Moderate grain pattern
  • Stable with minimum glue joints

Why Choose a Wood Cutting Board?

Wood is naturally anti-bacterial, and any bacteria left on the board will actually lessen in time versus multiplying on a plastic cutting board. A wooden board will also be more gentle on your knife's edge, and it just feels and sounds better under a knife.

Caring for Your J.K. Adams Cutting Board

Wash by hand in warm soapy water and dry thoroughly, and oil frequently with mineral oil to help give it an optimal appearance. Do not soak, microwave, freeze, or put in the dishwasher. For removing stains, you can use a weak bleach-and-water solution or a combination of lemon juice and salt. Be sure to rinse and wipe with mineral oil afterward. Additionally, the surface can be sanded to make the board look like new--although a board with wear will add character to your kitchen. For storage, keep the board away from strong sunlight as avoiding UV rays will reduce the risk of fading.

Environmental Responsibilities

  • We only purchase lumber from a select few suppliers who we are confident practice sustainable forestry practices
  • Vermont forests are growing faster than they are being harvested
  • J.K. Adams has been awarded the Governor's Award for Environmental Excellence

It is nice looking, but split.

First board warped and began splitting within 3 days - after oiling it every day.

This board was highly recommended by Cooks Illustrated, which was why I bought it. It is nice looking, but split. I oiled it several times before using, and occasionally thereafter. I don't even own a dishwasher, and never soaked it. Even with all this, it split rather soon after getting it. The board also arrived with a rough, not fully finished-feeling surface. I now only use it for cutting bread. Eventually it will split in two length-wise.

I also purchased this on the recommendation of Cook's Illustrated. I read other reviews in which half were positive and the other half complained of warping and splitting. I went with the purchase, anyway, and it promptly warped, then began to split, and this weekend it came apart into three pieces. I can't even have a carpenter glue them back together because the warp makes it impossible for the pieces to fit against one another.

love the board for cutting, but am very disappointed in its durability;
I realize it's not an expensive board, however I did expect it to last longer that two months without splitting; I have handwashed it and oiled it according to the directions and it still split in two places; I guess you only get what you pay for;

I am not sure what others are doing to their cutting boards, but mine is fine and it has been with us for nearly two years. It is a very good size and at least our board seems to be well made. We use it pretty regularly for large amounts of veggies, greens, loafs of bread and larger cuts of meat, that need to be cut down or pounded into thinner cuts. We live in pretty constant climate with very minimal variations in temp and humidity from one season to the next, I think this might be why our board is in such good shape. I recently hand sanded it down with a 150 paper to reduce knife lines and then washed it with soap and water and then let it air dry. It now looks as good as new. I try not to use dish detergent when washing the board, unless I cut meat or chicken on the board and do not put it through the dishwasher.

I ordered this cutting board based on America's Test Kitchen reviews. It looked great and worked well for a couple weeks. After a couple weeks of use it became warped.
I took great care in using this cutting board. I used one side primarily and always washed, wiped and dried it after each use. I called Amazon Customer service today and they were kind enough to offer a refund. I am returning it and buying something else.

I am bound and determined to only buy Maple cutting boards from here on out because it's such a better wood for this application. This is a truly quality cutting board for preforming small kitchen cutting tasks. Awesome, awesome, awesome.

Only had the cutting board for a month and the wood is splitting already. Not as good a quality as I thought.
