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:
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.
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.

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.
ChoppingBlocks.com provides a 100% satisfaction guarantee with your purchase. If you are not satisfied with your product for any reason, return it within 30 days of receipt and we will credit, refund or exchange your product.
Conditions for Returns
Unfortunately, due to the nature of our products (big blocks of wood), we are unable to absorb shipping costs for returned items. We would prefer not to have a restocking fee, but shipping just one-way is, on average, 20% of the cost of the board.
To share in the cost of returns however, if you would like to exchange your purchase for store credit, we will NOT charge a restocking fee and only ask that you cover the return shipping.
For damaged, defective or incorrect orders, please contact us within 3 days of receiving your merchandise. We may need to request pictures of damage for shipping claims. An RMA will be issued to you once you have contacted us. If we or the shipping carrier is at fault, we will replace or refund your order at our cost.
Please note, for custom work, we are unable to offer a refund or replacement except only in cases of defective or damaged merchandise.
Please send all RMA or return requests to firstname.lastname@example.org

Style your kitchen with a majestic walnut countertop from John Boos. Made from strips of American Black walnut, this joint edge grain design blends the surface to showŒæcomplexŒædark coffee colors to streaks of bronze highlights. Blended countertops have the benefits of an end grain look but are less than half the price for a true end grain top!
Built by John Boos, each countertop is still made in Effingham, Illinois, where Boos first built its reputation starting in 1887. To this day, John Boos is known for fine craftsmanship and allŒæcountertops sold areŒæcovered with a full one year warranty against defects. Each countertop is also guaranteed to be "clear wood" (defect free) on fiveŒæsurfaces, so that tops can be used for kitchen tables or islands.
For food preparation, John Boos recommends finishing your countertop with Boos oil, a food safe blend of mineral, linseed and orange oil. This formulation penetrates deep into wood fibers and protects countertops from water stains and foreign liquids. Keeping countertops oiled also helps to prevent over drying and Boos recommends re-oiling countertops every 3 to 4 weeks to ensure longevity.
Varnique is a semi-gloss coat that protects countertops against spills and everyday chemicals. This coatingŒæprovides an almost impregnable barrier to stains and liquids and is great for a low maintenance surface. However, varnique is not food safe and not recommended for use as a cutting surface.
