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.

From a pure performance perspective, which is better. I don't care about scent or what not. I've been using the Lime and nothing compares to it performance wise from what I've tried. However, don't love the smell. I don't think i'd love the smell of the lavender either, but it seems some on here...
I find time and time again that its always been great source of knowledge gaining and assistance to know what others do/or can suggest that would be greatly beneficial to others. So with that in mind, my quest today is to learn what many others do for their Shave Prep regiments.
According to the guy in the store they had them last year for Christmas, brought them back this year, had to lower the price (it was originally $50) and may not be bothering with them anymore when they sell out (they will still sell the travel brush). The store I was in only had 4 left including...
Lots of interest in another round of this box pass! So, please, if you are interested, PM me your name-screen name-email-snail mail-phone number. Please do this even if you were in the last pass. We will be using a Regional C box, and I will sort out the trajectory by zip codes in order to make...
I have been shaving DE for over two years now and I only own one brush, an Edwin Jagger best badger brush that I believe cost $35.
I don't see the point in brush AD, but then again, I don't see the point in RAD but I do it anyway:001_smile.
