Getting garlic/onion odors out of wooden cutting boards?

Last year for a holiday gift I got a huge, beautiful wooden cutting board that I adore. Problem is, garlic/onion odors have taken up residence. I can no longer use the board for fruits or any vegetables that I don't want to taste like onion. Can anyone help? I have tried salt and lemon juice/vinegar to no avail.
