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.

There were 5 areas which were very rough, as if they had never been sanded. I hand sanded those areas and was able to get them pretty smooth. Per the instructions, I applied the Boos Mystery Oil and let it soak in overnight, then applied a generous coat of the Boos Cream and left it overnight. It was not until the next morning when I was at the final step of wiping off the excess cream when I found there was a 3 inch cut along the top of the board!
The cut was deep enough that I was concerned about bacteria growth, so once again, I got the sandpaper out. After an hour of hand sanding the cut was half as deep, but you can still noticeable.
Knowing the reputation of Boos boards I do not believe the problems I encountered were due to a quality control issue. I think the boards they're selling at a discount on Amazon are "seconds". In the end, I now own a Boos board, but I'm very disappointed by this experience.
