Where can I find John Boo Cutting Board in Toronto?

I'm looking for a John Boos Walnut End Grain chopping block 24 x 18 x 2 1/4 inches (

I haven't had much success finding retail stores that resell this one in Canada and any websites that do sell it online like the one above don't ship to Canada. Where else am I likely to find this?

Thank you!

      OP is looking for the walnut cutting board so the 2nd link won't help them. Also, the first link only mentions The Pepper Mill in Hazelton Lanes which I am pretty sure went out of business.

      OP, did you try contacting the company directly and asking if they have a retailer/distributor in Canada?

      Otherwise, you might have to order to a US address (like CBI USA) and pick up over there.

      If you aren't set on that brand, I recall seeing some Walnut end grain cutting boards at the One of a Kind show last year. Sure there are some Canadian manufactures with similar types of boards.

        Thank you yisf. I tried calling all of the authorized dealers in Ontario listed on their website and none of them seem to carry this one. I missed the one of a kind show last year so maybe I can check out the one they host this year instead.

    2. If you want nice handcrafted cutting boards made from walnut and other hardwoods, Greg at Hacher and Krain on Dupont makes a selection for what I am guessing will be a significantly lower price.

        Just gave them a call and unfortunately they don't believe in end-grain cutting boards which is what i'm looking for :(

        Thank you for the suggestion though!

      2. If you can't find anything local I highly recommend this guy.

        I have a Maple end grain 22" by 16" and I couldn't be happier. He will ship to Canada but there might be a bit of a wait.

          If you're willing to pay Boos prices, might as well go w/ a boardsmith. More highly regarded and yes they'll have end grain walnut.

          tosho knife arts has an end grain walnut board also....

        2. homesense carries Joon Boos. I think i saw a walnut end grain in the yonge/queen a couple of months ago. i'll check this afternoon.

          1. Check out Nella Cucina, (416) 922-9055, on Bathurst north of Bloor. They carry Boos boards (although they don't have the one you are looking for in stock at the moment -- I was in there about a week ago). However, they will order one for you.
