The Butcher Block Store by Northside Hardwoods, LLC

Welcome to The Butcher Block Store, where we offer manufacturer direct cutting boards, custom cutting boards, wooden bread boards, wooden cheese boards and more.

The origins of the butcher block are not known with any certainty. Some say the use of butcher blocks first began in ancient China. Others say that wood has been used in the preparation of food since the prehistoric ages. Butchers used tree rounds to carve meat on and found over time that the rounds were often too soft and quickly became unsanitary. As time marched on and technology advanced to the creation of machines - nicer, cleaner slabs of wood were cut. This led to smaller boards since the slab of wood could be cut to any size - and so began the days of the modern cutting board. As soft woods were the most available type of wood at the time, they were the material of choice to be used for cutting boards. Hardwood butcher blocks were the preferred choice of the butcher industry since they were extremely thick and durable. So durable in fact, that it wasn't uncommon for a butcher to use the same block for their entire career.

Exactly when they started may be unclear, but one fact remains true: butcher blocks have been used for centuries, and remain a staple of the modern kitchen today. The Butcher Block Store prides itself on bringing you high quality, long lasting, timeless cutting boards for your lifetime - and perhaps beyond!
