These "Heirloom Grade" end grain cutting boards are made by a professional woodworker using local kiln dried oak from a local hardwood mill and local air cured black walnut.
They are constructed entirely with food safe materials approved by the FDA for cutting board use.
The dimensions of the block are 2x12x20 inches and rests on rail feet 1 inch high and 1.5 inches wide for stability on a variety of surfaces.
Note that some slight variation of those dimensions will be present as each is hand built and the nature of the materials must be accommodated.
The feet are attached with high torque, Industrial Grade, non-corrosive screws permanently capped by flush walnut plugs and walnut through doweling for added resistance to twist and impact.
The blocks are first assembled, planed, and burnished to a smooth finish. The blocks are saturated and cured with boiled walnut oil and beeswax for a minimum of three weeks.
Over that period they are rubbed and burnished daily with washed and lightly oiled burlap to bring the most out of the finish and grain and to insure the long term stability of the block before shipping.
After the block is well cured the feet are attached and oiled as well. Each cutting board is shipped with a 100ml corked glass bottle of boiled walnut oil sealed with bee's wax for convenient maintenance by its proud owner.
Boards will be shipped eight to ten weeks after receipt of payment. Many of our members should receive their boards sooner than that.
To order, send your payment of 145.00 USD to [email protected]..CONUS shipping is included in the price. Please ensure your ship to address in PayPal is correct.
Please send an email with any questions or to arrange other payment methods or shipping outside of CONUS.

So after reading another thread about Chiseled Face soaps, I thought I'd give them a try. I go to the Maggard's site and settle on Summer Shower soap and A/S. I placed the order and in short order my stuff arrives, (I love Maggards, great people to deal with). After a shave today using my...

Just a little something to give back to the members. It is open to all members, no matter how long they have been around. ALSO, CONUS and NON CONUS alike. All postage paid by me.
The only rule is to tell us what you plan on doing this 4th of July.

I'm thinking about purchasing my 3rd safety razor, and was looking at the Parker 26c. I was wondering if there's a handle I can put on the 26c that's shorter. I have used my 2 Merkurs several times now that I can tell I prefer the shorter handle of the 34c over the longer 38c handle. The Parker 26c...
