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. (Sold separately on Amazon.)

6-month update: Still awesome. So fast, easy to clean, solid as a rock, and enough space to make lots of veg piles.
Solid, heavy, nicely finished board. I've only unwrapped and chopped some veg and some chicken on it so far, but this thing is nice. The 1 1/2" is legit. The handles are smoothly routered-in with no rough edges. It's pretty, each slat has a nice grain, for the most part. Best of all it's a hard, fast surface that is actually pretty quiet for how hard it feels out of the box. Even with my dull knife, a few habitual higher pressure slices didn't seem to leave a mark yet. This is quite possibly the nicest piece of equipment I've now got in my kitchen, if only because it is one of those simple, heavy-duty items that looks like it will make cooking more fun and easier. The 15" x 20" size is great for piling-up on some product and not running out of room, while also not completely dominating the whole counter. Happy early Festivus to me. I threw a 99-cent rubber draw liner thing under it, and it works great for staying put. I'll update with use, but so far can't imagine something this thick and solid having any issues going forward. Worth every penny of 50 bucks right now.
Edit 1: A few days in and I'm still in love. This thing makes me feel like I'm a real chef. Makes chopping fun.
I have had no problem with warping as I'm very carful how wet I allow the board to get. If I think it got too wet I sit it on it's edge to dry. I use butcher block oil from a popular home DIY depot store, which is less expensive than the BOOS brand, to keep the board conditioned. I clean with a moderately wet, soapy dish cloth then immediately rinse with a damp, no soap, dish cloth. I do not use this board for cutting raw or cooked meat although I guess you can if you wash the board with a bleach solution. Be aware that some of the boards natural color and tannins will leach onto your dish cloth when cleaning. This is normal and you may want to consider using an old cloth or a devoted dish cloth for cleaning.
Despite that issue with the ends separating, having this giant cutting board is great. You can cut and place multiple things on the board at the same time so you don't have to worry about getting separate bowls/plates to clear up additional space.
The knife feels good against the wood and there's a special bounce you get when you're chopping (other buyers know what I'm talking about). The wood board just looks great in your kitchen and has essentially become a decorating piece.
I also recommend purchasing a mat to put underneath. I bought "San Jamar CBM1318 Saf-T-Grip Board-Mate Nonslip Cutting Board, 18" Width x 13" Height". It's smaller than my board, but I saved a few bucks and it works just fine.
In addition I purchased the Boos oil and cream.
I put it on top of some rubberized shelf liner that I got a a beyond bath type store and cut to size. I cut it a bit smaller than the actual cutting board and it looks great on my counter. The cutting board sort of appears to float atop the counter and it is very sturdy when I cut on it, it's doesn't move at all.
The hard maple is great on my knives and is supposed to not dull them nearly as fast as other materials.
I oil this about every few weeks with some mineral oil and it seems to be holding up well.
I got the 12x18 size and for me, it's plenty large. Yet it's also small and not super heavy so that I can bring it over to the stove if I need to. Or, if I'm going to someone else's house to do some cooking, this size is easily transportable.
I'm happy with my purchase!
