The modern butcher block was developed to provide a more sanitary and stable cutting surface. Prior to the invention of butcher block, butchers cut on “tree rounds” or a section of tree trunk set on legs. A Butchers block, because of its construction, was fundamentally more stable.

The modern butcher block was always solid and usually very thick, allowing the butcher to work on the block for a long period of time. A butcher would buy a block as an apprentice and use it for his entire career! Today, as well as keeping their usefulness, butchers blocks make an attractive and stylish addition to many kitchens.
