For starters, this is what they refer too as an end grain butcher block. (wood rail end pieces fused together). Its far more of a common block than the edge grain, (wood rails that run the entire length of the board), and for good reason. The work surface on an end grain not only makes it a more handsome piece, but also is much easier on knives, and offers better resistance to nicks and gouges. During cutting or chopping, the end grain wood fibers absorb the impact of the knife blade better. This helps keep knives sharper longer and helps maintain the integrity of the butcher block surface. End grain butcher block construction is also the strongest and most durable, which is why end grain butcher blocks are far more well known and popular. At 14 by 18, this medium sized end grain block is I feel the perfect size for just about any kitchen without taking over the whole counter. At a full 2" thick, it is also not so high and heavy as to have it lay at an awkward height for cutting. (I have seen some 3" or more blocks that when set upon a 35" counter, is a little too high for comfortable use by many). This is a very nice looking, exceptionally well crafted block that has carrying handles on the side, as well as four wooden feet with rubber booties on them for solid gripping without moving around. My own opinion is that I have never had much use for either reversible, or any kind of chopping block that come without feet.Read more ›
Be forewarned on this one - it is NOT for you.
Within several months my board warped and developed cracks along the edges where the glue was failing. YES, I had been keeping the board properly oiled and protected from water. In a call to the manufacturer I received a bewildered reaction from the technician along with a suggestion that "perhaps you can fill the cracks with soft bees wax."
So I have been following that suggestions and meticulously attending to oiling and drying down the board after every use.
Sorry - the glue joints are now cracked EVERYWHERE, large food catching cracks through out the board.
I am convince this was not an issue of poor handling but of poor construction.
This board is headed for the trash. Too bad I could have bought a disposable cutting board for under $10.
And my experience is not unique. Wish I had read the reviews before buying but you can read lots of them on Amazon for yourself.

We looked in the FAQ on the Catskill website on how to correct a warped cutting board by applying dispersed pressure onto one side under a damp cloth (we removed the feet and used books on top of a glass cutting board on top of a damp cloth) and although it flattened out the board, even more cracks appeared! We now have 1/8-1/4"" cracks on three sides that go all the way through the cutting board (see video to see how it looks). To try to prevent more cracks, I put mineral oil on the board and the board soaked up the ENTIRE BOTTLE (8 oz.). I'm now left more confused on how to take care of this fickle cutting board...I sent in for an exchange of this board and will try again, knowing what I know from suggestions in reviews here and on other Catskill blocks on Amazon. I don't mind taking the extra time to care for the product, I just wish it was more clear from the start!!Read more ›
I would not recommend this product for anyone unless you are looking for an over-sized paperweight.
