For small parcel packages, such as cutting boards or chopping blocks, transit time is usually 2 to 5 business days.
Larger products (countertops, kitchen carts, kitchen islands) are filled by our vendors directly, as these items are usually made to order. The lead times on these items are as follows:
- Kitchen Islands, Tables and Carts: 2 to 4 weeks
- Countertops: 2 to 4 weeks
- Butcher Blocks: 2 to 4 Weeks
- Back Ordered Chopping Blocks & Boards: 1 to 2 Weeks
- Specific large items are considered "Quick Ship" and will be available sooner
Note that these are business day estimates and lead times may be extended during the holidays.
Our automated systems will send out an email immediately with your shipping carrier and tracking information once your order ships.
Freight Shipping Information
Over sized items or products over 130 pounds (and some items below 130 lbs) will be delivered via freight truck directly to your home or business. Freight deliveries will go directly to your home or business and will require someone to be present to accept the delivery. We always notify the freight carrier contact you beforehand to schedule a day and time for delivery.
As an complimentary service, we always request a lift gate service for any order where any one item weights over 130 lbs. A lift gate is a powered lift at the back of the delivery truck that can raise and lower goods to in and out of the truck. This ensures that you are not required to lift items out the back of a delivery truck, which can be very heavy and unsafe.
Be aware that most of our competitors do not provide lift gate services by default and will either charge extra for the service or simply deliver your order without a lift gate.
If you would like to schedule a lift gate for your delivery for a lighter load, we would be happy to do so as well, for an added fee of $50. Please call us to to schedule this service.
Please note that all freight deliveries are "curbside", which means that the delivery truck will unload the shipment as the nearest curb adjacent to your home or business. In most cases, this means the front or end of your driveway. It will be your responsibility to transport the shipment indoors, so we highly recommend having a hand truck, dolly or extra set of hands during the delivery.

Canada and International Shipping
We are happy to ship to Canada and have discounted carrier rates with DHL Express for parcel shipments into Canada. Larger and heavier shipments will be shipped by freight into Canada. Use our checkout directly to get rates for Canadian shipping costs. Please note our rate calculator is based on non-remote locations and we may be required to add a shipping surcharge if you require delivery to a restricted* area.
For other international shipments to the UK, Australia or anywhere else, we are happy to use DHL Express as our parcel shipping partner and can deliver within 2 to 3 business days for most of the world. Please contact us at email@example.com for a rate quote.
Please note that we do not offer refunds or exchanges on international shipments. In the event that a product is damaged during shipping, we will send a replacement product. For defective products, we will arrange for a replacement, but shipping costs will be the responsibility of the customer.
All customs, VAT or duties will be the responsibility of the customer. In the event that duties are not paid and the shipment is not released, ChoppingBlocks.com will not refund purchase payments.
Your kitchen island or cart will come with assembly instructions. Most John Boos equipment can be assembled in 1 to 2 hours, assuming you have two people. We are happy to provide instructions for assembly of your kitchen island or cart prior to delivery. If you require assistance with assembly, we recommend contacting a local furniture installer or handyman. Unfortunately, we cannot recommend any specific installers because we have found it difficult to recommend a national installer that provides a consistent level of service.
*Restricted locations are defined as remote, land locked or difficult to access locations. UPS and freight delivery trucks require turn around space and will not be able to fit in tight alleys, drives and are prohibited from driving on dirt or gravel roads for delivery. In the event that you require delivery to restricted area, our free shipping promotion will not apply and surcharges may added to the shipping cost.

- Hard Rock Maple
- End Grain Construction
- Reversible and can be used on both sides
- Grooved hand grips
Beautifully built, this John Boos maple chopping block is made of end grain North American maple. Featuring an attractive end grain checkerboard design that highlights the myriad of natural wood colors, this design is also longer lasting and better for your knives than traditional edge grain construction. With clear wood grain on both sides, the block is reversible usable on both sides. The grooved hand grips help move the chopping block around the kitchen or between the kitchen and dining room. A food safe oil along with Boos board cream is applied liberally to each chopping block, ensuring a protective finish that penetrates the wood and prevents dryness and moisture.
Note: The 18 x 18 x 4 inch chopping block is not reversible and does not include grips, as it weighs 36 pounds and is meant to be a stationary chopping block.
To maintain your John Boos chopping block, simply re-oil your block with cutting board oil and/or board cream every 5 to 6 weeks or when dry to the touch. All chopping blocks come with a one year warranty from John Boos and are made in the USA.
In stock items ship out same or next day. Otherwise will ship out within 7 to 14 days.
