Our commitment to quality and the environment is unwavering. Every material we use is sourced right here in the USA.

Our dedication to sustainability reflects our respect for the environment and our desire to leave a positive impact.
At the heart of Brooklyn Butcher Blocks is Nils Wessell, the founder and visionary behind the brand. Nils’ passion for woodworking and his commitment to quality have been the driving forces behind the brand’s success. As a family-owned business, we take pride in our roots and the close-knit bond we share. While our team of craftsmen may evolve, one thing remains constant: a collective dedication to excellence. Each member brings a unique skill set, ensuring that every product we craft tells a story of dedication, precision, and love for the art of woodworking.
Over a decade ago, I founded Brooklyn Butcher Blocks. At the time, I used whatever shop space I could find to put together my boards. I would head to farmer’s markets and haul my blocks in suitcases up and down the subway stairs. Slowly but surely, one purchase led to another, and I’ve been able to build a livelihood out of this craft. It’s all because of your support. Thank you for supporting my small business throughout these twelve years. Being able to grow this business and bring joy to you all through these products means the world to me.
