Have you ever meet a Boos Block...?
If not, you should.
They are made of rock hard maple wood, and we can tell this wood is good.
They stand tall on your counter for excellent chopping ergonomics. Boos blocks are well made of well-dried and oiled wood that is stable and tough. This particular square block offers the end grain chopping surface: hard and durable. Place this block on your counter top and it immediately becomes a centerpiece of your kitchen!
The 3" legs lift the block high enough off the counter that the underside of the block dries easily between uses - unlike the usual 1/4" air space of ordinary blocks where suspicious moisture can lurk for days at a time...
