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.
What are you (tent) camping essentials. The things you can't leave without. I'm planning to go camping a few time this spring (much to the delight of my wife 🙄) and getting a way too early start on planning lol
Have been DE-shaving for a couple of months now.
Since there are so many soaps and creams to choose from,
I've ordered samples from several websites hoping to find a few to put in my daily routine.
I rated by scent, lathering, shave and skin feeling after shaving.
In most cases I...
Itís time, once again, for us to band together to 3017 a puck of our beloved Williams Mug Soap. What does that mean? Basically, just commit yourself to using a puck of Williams Mug Soap for every shave until itís gone. For the average user this will probably be around 20-35 shaves.
Ok, let's see your great, fool-proof CRISPY waffle recipes.
At one time I made waffles in a new-fangled non-stick electric waffle iron. But I found it never got hot enough to get crispy and I think the teflon coating also inhibited the crunch. So I went on Ebay and got a old 1950s waffle iron...
So the thinner more flexible DE blades started appearing in the 1930's and that's the blade we're all used to in stainless form now.
But why the change from the thicker blades - the change in cutout patterns was due to patent design competition.
The thicker blades (like SE and Injector...
I'm a new wet shaver, and as of now I just splash my face with some water and then use aftershave balm... looking into maybe getting an alum block or using witch hazel before the balm.
But what are your post-shave routines?

I want to learn how to use a double edged safety razor, dont mind if its used or brand new as long as its clean. Wanting something good enough to start with but not expensive so preferrably in the $10-$15 range would be great. Preferring a double edge but will consider other types if they are more...
Just curious as to peoples reasons really.
I always liked the look of the 'old fashionedí DE and straight razors and the spiralling cost of cartridge blades just pushed me over the edge (see what I did there? :lol:) one day.
What made you want to drop the convenience of the modern stuff and...
