The Boos 1887 Collection was inspired by the original Boos butcher blocks that were made from a solid piece of hardwood. Their Northern Hard Rock Maple Rustic-Edge Design cutting boards are as close to nature as you can get. The cutting boards are 1-3/4″ thick and are kiln-dried, with rustic edges and no glue joints. The smooth one-piece surface will make for a great food prep surface or an elegant serving board. You can even count the age rings within the rich tones of the wood grain. Each board is slightly different and has its own unique story to tell. Some will have more rustic characteristics than others, like knot holes, and vibrant color variations. All these features make each board beautiful, unique, and chock-full of marvelous character.
