Hard Maple End Grain Cutting Board / Butcher Block
Butcher block boards are made from the end grain of hardwoods, creating the most durable and cut-resistant surface for food preparation. This is the board to buy if you want the ultimate in beauty, durability and refinement.
These boards are reversible, and come with finger grooves cut into each side for comfort. Beautiful and made to last a lifetime, this board is made from solid hard maple.
Butcher block dimensions -
Small - 17"L X 12"W 1 1/2" D
Large - 23"L X 15"W X 1 1/2" D. As these boards are made to order, natural variations in wood grain and pattern are to be expected.
This board is handmade in our small woodshop in Rosharon, Texas. Attention to detail is our specialty, from purchasing the highest quality wood products to shaping the boards and creating a seamless finish. Each board is soaked in 100% food grade mineral oil and waxed with our signature conditioning balm, "Axel's Board Conditioner", which is made with natural Texas beeswax.
Our cutting boards are naturally food safe and safe for your family! Some wear and knife marks are expected with use, but can be minimized with regular maintenance. Axel's Board Conditioner is available in our store and is and easy and safe way to preserve your board.
If your board ever needs refinishing, this service is included with the purchase of any board. Simply mail your board or message us for local drop-off, and we will do our best to make it look as good as new!

Keep it clean! Do's and Don'ts
DO hand wash your board regularly using mild dish soap and water. Wash all surfaces including the sides and underneath your board, using a rag or sponge.
DON'T - wash only the top surface of the board. When only one surface of the board gets wet, it may swell unevenly and cause warping of the board.
DO - Dry it with a clean, dry cloth and stand it up on it's side to dry. Remember - uneven moisture = warping. You want it to dry with both large sides equally exposed to air flow.
DON'T - put it in the dishwasher! Wooden cutting boards are NOT dishwasher safe.
Regular care -
Yellow Dog Woodshop boards come pre-saturated with 100% food grade mineral oil and protected with our special blend of oil and beeswax (Axel's Board Conditioner). This blend repels stains, moisture and food; however, with regular washing this barrier breaks down and your board will get thirsty. Make sure that you quench that thirst with oil - or it will absorb moisture!
We recommend conditioning your board with a natural blend of mineral oil and beeswax at least once a month! Of course, if you use and wash your board a lot or if you just want extra protection, you can condition it as frequently as every day. Be sure to clean your board and let it dry completely before applying conditioner. We make our own blend of oil and wax called Axel's Board Conditioner. Click here to check it out!
If your board is very dry, you can coat it with mineral oil before coating with an oil/wax blend. This can penetrate deeper into the wood, providing more protection for dryer wood.
Removing stains -
Lighter woods such a maple may develop food stains with regular use. To treat and remove these stains, create a paste from baking soda and the juice from a lemon. Rub it gently over the surface of the board, focusing on the stained areas. Rinse and wash your board, and follow up with a good board conditioner to protect and prevent additional stains.
