Union Stock Yard 3" Butcher Block

Regular price $158.00

A top-of-the-line chopping block that will serve you for years to come. Unlike traditionally made boards, end grain construction is less dulling to cutlery because the wood grain direction accommodates cutting instead of resisting it. Wear and tear is minimized on both cutlery and on the board, giving more longevity to your cutting tools. This multi-functional board serves as a prep station, cutting and serving board to satisfy all your kitchen needs. 

  • 20" x 14"
  • 3" thick
  • End grain construction with food-grade glue
  • Wash with warm soapy water and prop up to air dry
  • Oil the board regularly to prevent cracking and maintain its rich colors
  • Wash your Ironwood products in warm water and soap.
  • Towel dry. Prop up to allow the wood to fully dry. 
  • Never submerge acacia wood in water or put it in the dishwasher!
  • Regular oiling will help to maintain the deep luster of the Acacia wood and ensure your Ironwood products last for years to come. 
  • When your Ironwood cutting board first arrives it will be thirsty, oil your board once a day for the first week to "season" the board.
  • Once your board is seasoned, oil it once a month for the first year, and at least once a year for life. 
  • Our food-grade blend of mineral and citrus oils is great at preventing cracks. 
  • Don't use an oil that can go bad like olive or canola oil.
  • To deep clean and deodorize your board or bowl make a paste with coarse salt and lemon juice.
Apply Salt: Sprinkle the cutting board with coarse salt like kosher salt.
Scour the surface: Using a lemon half with the cut side down, scour the surface while squeezing to release lemon juice.
Let sit, then scrape off: Let sit for at least 5 minutes, then scrape away the dirty liquid using a bench scraper or metal spatula.
Rinse: Give the surface a final rinse with a clean sponge. Prop up to dry.
  • It is highly unlikely that your board will warp if you avoid submerging it in water and oil it regularly.
  • If your board warps, wet the warped side of the board and place a heavy object on top and let gravity do its thing. A glass baking dish that is a similar size as the board works well. 
  • Feel free to contact us at sales@foxrunbrands.com with any questions.

Beautiful and heavy

So I received my cutting board today, I�m very pleased with it! I applied oil and will apply more later if warranted. I measured it and it matches the description as advertised. At 16 lbs. it is heavy, I wouldn�t recommend dropping it on your foot!
I did see a blemish on the edge, but as I will be using this I�m not concerned, it adds some character to it.
I would recommend this to anyone looking for a cutting board.

I�m updating my review, I�ve had my cutting board for a few weeks and have oiled it and used the Boos cream. It�s turning out very well. I used it for the first time last week to prepare 2 Cornish hens.
It was great, and cleaned up fast. I did removed the rubber �feet� from the bottom so I could oil that side as well and be able to use it to cut, chop.
I�ve oiled it and have used the cream also.
This is a FANTASTIC cutting/work station board!!
The third photo is the �bottom � after I oiled and sealed it.
OH!!! when I apply the oil and cream, I use my hands, the heat created while rubbing them in helps the board to absorb them easier.

Fantastic chopping block

Heavy and sturdy. Love the color. Easy to clean and treat. Great purchase.

Pleasure to use

My Union Stock Yard Butcher Block arrived with minor shipping damage. I thought about returning it, but the item was out of stock. I'm happy I kept it, it's been a pleasure to use. It's a very thirsty board. I oiled it many times a day for a week before I dared use it.

It's THIRSTY! See edit

The craftsmanship is wonderful. I have half a dozen other bamboo boards, and an overnight oiling seemed sufficient, in that all of those bamboo boards displayed refusal; that is: there was still a lot of oil left on top of them.
This end grain Acacia board, I have been oiling for three days now and it's just starting to display refusal. I will probably let it soak overnight one more time and call it good to go.
I'm on my seventh day, and I'm STILL oiling...it continues to absorb more slowly, and it COULD be running off the sides into the paper towels I have surrounding the board, but the surface was covered in oil at 10:00 last night. When I got up this morning, the top of the board was dry...I will probably quit fussing over it after today.

ALSO; I just put it through its first abusive use: I had a rack of baby back ribs on it last night, and I ran into five spots that I couldn't push the cleaver through. So I took my Osborne wooden mallet and beat the cleaver through.
I looked for the gouges in the board, but I didn't see any!
It must be true what they say about 'self healing'!

This board is heavy duty. I was looking at buying the John Boos version for years but this board is better quality at a better price! What's not to love about that?
