The corners of a counter tend to seem useless: I have some jars and spices sitting in mine because the corner is just too deep for me to be able to use the area effectively. But the John Boos Corner Cutting Board sits on the corner of a counter top, turning the space into a prep station. The cutting board extends out over the edges of the corner, with a lip that fits snugly into the corner and holds the cutting board in place on any 90 degree corner. The lip extends only far enough to hold the cutting board in place: most cabinets and drawers will still open comfortably even with the John Boos Corner Cutting Board in place.

The John Boos Corner Cutting Board is constructed from hard-rock maple, protecting your counters no matter what you need to chop. The manufacturers use edge-grain construction--which preserves the edge on high-quality knives--and have added a drip groove to collect juices, keeping your counter dry. It has a protective finish of mineral oil and beeswax. The oval cutting board measures 24 inches in length, large enough to easily fit the Thanksgiving turkey. The John Boos Corner Cutting Board is $138.95.
