From the BoardSMITH website:

David Smith founded the BoardSMITH in 2005. A lifelong craftsman, he built his first butcher block in 1993 and refined the design and techniques over the years. As a result, the BoardSMITH has earned a reputation for creating one of the finest butcher blocks in the world. John Loftis took over the BoardSMITH upon David’s retirement in 2015.
