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.

Good morning all! I have come to the conclusion that I need to change some things in my life to be healthier. This is my thread to allow me to track my progress and allow you guys to keep me accountable for making it happen.

Good morning and Happy New Year! I received a Thiers-Issard #69 Medaille Argi from lmarkow yesterday and today was my first shave with a straight. I have been wanting to try str8 shaving for awhile now and was really excited to receive the razor, strop, and shave stick. The razor was sent to Doc...
I started DE shaving in August 2013 and have really enjoyed the challenges and rewards and was gifted a shave-ready straight by buca3152 this afternoon at a local meet and greet in NYC. :laugh: I shaved with it as soon as I got home in true OCD fashion.
I travel quite a bit and...
Used my new-to-me aluminum handled British tech tonight for the first time. Loaded it with a new Astra SP and went at it as normal.
Does it make sense that it felt much more aggressive than my Merkur 34C, and my Canadian fat handled tech? The alum block had a lot more bite tonight than I...
