The butcher's block officially originated in the late 19th century. Butchers initially used sycamore wood as a block because it was an excellent shock absorber. Eventually, strips of maple wood were glued together to form sturdy butcher blocks, which became the standard for butchers in the 19th and early 20th centuries. Today, butcher tables are made from a variety of woods and have been perfected and transformed into a variety of cutting boards for everyday uses.
