The History of John Boos & Co
In 1887, Effingham, Illinois blacksmith Conrad Boos used a Sycamore tree placed on three legs while hammering horseshoes. Three years later, a local butcher realized a wooden Boos Block could be used for cutting meat, and had one custom made. Word spread to surrounding small towns and cities and by 1911, John Boos & Co was shipping custom butcher blocks from coast to coast. Throughout the 20’s, 30’s and 40’s, John Boos expanded their production and product range to include tables and workbenches, the majority of which went to the war effort during WWII. By the 1940s, John Boos had earned their outstanding reputation for quality and craftsmanship, and John Boos butcher blocks were found in every restaurant, food store and butcher shop in America. Today, the traditional craftsmen work ethic is still alive and well at John Boos, where all boards and butcher blocks are still proudly manufactured in Effingham, Illinois. Often imitated, John Boos boards and blocks are favorites of professional chefs and can be found in restaurants and commercial settings worldwide.

Care and Maintenance
Keeping Your Board Sanitized:
Wash your John Boos cutting board with hot soapy water after each use and dry with a clean towel or let it air dry. For further sanitation, the board can be rinsed with a vinegar or chlorine bleach solution. (1 teaspoon bleach to one quart of water/5-to-1 ratio of vinegar to water) Do not soak the board in water, this will damage the wood. Like all natural wood cutting boards, John Boos boards are not intended for the dishwasher.
Maintaining Your Board:
Oil your cutting board on all surfaces every 3-4 weeks to maintain the original Boos block cream finish with beeswax. This quick task will protect and prolong the board’s life and ensure it is enjoyed for decades to come. John Boos recommends using John Boos Mystery Oil and/or John Boos Block Cream.

I have lots of other boards that I take just as God care of, have owned for years and do not have these cracks.
I would avoid this board and perhaps this brand altogether.
This item was defective upon leaving their manufacturing facilities & having personally done woodworking in my past I can state the exact problem with this item’s manufacture.
The manufacture process is simple. Long staves of wood are cut, the wood on the glued sides is lightly roughed, glue is evenly applied to the roughed sides, the wood staves laid out with the rough edges meeting & then the entire block is clamped together tightly until the glue dries.
In the case of the block I purchased either the glue was unevenly applied to the wood or not enough glue was applied or the block wasn’t clamped until the glue dried completely or the block wasn’ Clamped under enough pressure.
Total junk. Correctly made this should have lasted a lifetime. I should have noticed the short return period & realized from that this was total junk.
The pictures don’t show it real well yet (it is only going to get worse), but the first two pics are from the defective end and the last pic is from the good end & shows how tight the seam should be l.
They are very high maintenance, and very bad quality. I have had very low cost bamboo boards that have held up MUCH better than this board. Don't believe the hype about this brand.
Update after several weeks of use, terrible board. Very warped, heavily cut so that I'm difficultly properly cleaning it. I'm going to have to throw this one out. And hey, brain surgeon, the description says this is end-grain construction! And I don't see a 1/4" in thickness making a difference. Nowhere nears the quality of the boards I got from some Amish craftsmen which have also seen heavy use at home.
The first night, before going to bed, I covered the surface and the edges with a light coat of food grade mineral oil. I let it sit overnight to allow the wood to absorb the oil. I awoke the next day and wiped off the excess oil. I repeated this process for five days. After the fifth day, there was much less excess mineral oil to deal with, and I noticed the rough surface had completely disappeared.
To date, there has been no cracking or chipping of the wood. This isn't to say that there won't be changes further down the road. I mean, this IS wood after all, so I expect some normal wear. I don't expect it to crack since I plan on keeping the piece oiled.
I'm pleased with it's weight, and it's added just the right amount of height to my counter's surface allowing for easier access of use when prepping foods. It's really made a difference in how I prep food! Who woulda thunk a little piece of wood could do this?
I wash the board in warm, soapy water (I've heard this is against the Cutting Board Biblical Convention, but I've always thought convention is overrated) regularly, but I immediately dry it off with a dish towel and place it over a dish drainer to allow for the natural evaporative process to complete the drying job. So far, so good.
John Boos lives up to its reputation once again. Thanks, JB!
