Looking to upgrade my cutting board to a higher end grain one. I have read on-line (Chow, blogs, knife forums, etc…) about Boos and Boardsmith and these seem to be the clear brands to get. Some recent grumblings about Boos boards quality but also some shipping delays for Boardsmith. I take care of all of my “stuff” so paying more is not a problem if it is definitely worth it and will last over time.
I can buy the end grain Boos boards at my local Sur La Tab store, so that is nice cause I will not have to pay for s\h. I don’t mind waiting a few weeks for a Boardsmith board (and paying the s\h) if I am going to notice a big difference in quality.
I would love maple but it just does not match my kitchen as much as the walnut, so I will be getting walnut (love the darker color). Board will be approx. 12x18x2. Prefer the Boardsmith board as it already has feet and I would have to add feet myself to the Boos board (I don’t plan to flip the board).
Any opinions or info is appreciated!
