best type of wood for cutting board in Canada

John Loftis and David Smith working together in Dallas, TX

For the last ten years, David Smith has poured his heart and soul into making the absolute best end grain butcher’s block on the market. With recent health issues, David needed to turn his attention towards family. So he worked out a gradual transition plan with John Loftis, a craftsman who has been making butcher block for a living for four years and doing fine woodworking since the 1980’s.

Our goal in this partnership is to produce products today that are completely indistinguishable from those we produced 5 years ago. We intend to maintain the same tradition of dedication to craftsmanship that has been the hallmark of the BoardSMITH brand for the last decade. This collaboration has been extremely exciting, and we can’t wait to see where things go from here.
