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.

Before switching to DE's from multi-blade cartridges, I always shaved in the shower. Then a couple of years ago I found DE and shaved at the sink. Today, I experimented and tried traditional wet shaving in the shower. The experience was pretty good. It felt a little bit clumsy, though, because...
Seriously, I've been chasing the "ultimate" aftershave for years. Czech and Speake; Acqua di Parma, Guerlain, Tom Ford, multiple artisans, etc. While I enjoy some of them, the aftershave that I reach for the most is cheap, reliable, dependable, Floid Vigoroso. Makes my face feel wonderful after...
If there is something I find very pleasing for the eye, it is curves.
Man made or natural doesn't really matter, so for this month's challenge I would like to see your take on curves.
I have an example from a small church I came by the other day - a window with several curvy lines.
I have a bunch of shaving gear I want to clear out of my den before a move and I figured the best way is to put it all in a box a send it out in a pass around box to give others a chance to either try new products, or even keep the ones they love and maybe add to it and keep it going. ...
