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.
FYI, in Texas there's legislation proposed that would let "cosmetologists" offer straight razor shaves. Currently, only licensed barbers are able to do this, but this new legislation would open the practice up to a lot more people. Apparently the barber community is pushing back. (And...
Hello, fellow wet shavers. I'm finally back after a four-month bout with a Norelco electric shaver. Unfortunately, the rotating blades dulled already, even though Norelco advertises that the blades are supposed to last a year (a year my ass, Norelco!). They only lasted me four months instead,...
Joe from Italianbarber.com and Razorock mentioned that Proraso has released a new Green Aftershave Balm.
I emailed the company about the new product, but was advised that it has only been released in Italy.
Has anyone seen or tried this elusive new Proraso balm? Pictures would be welcome!
I have been shaving for two months now and have experienced both highs and lows. I have had some nice shaves and a few blood baths ( thanks to the aptly named shark blade, lol ). My last shave though seemed to go perfect. I had reread several advice post here and got set to rework my technique. My...
I'm interested in how many members are likely to buy a synthetic shave brush in the future. I asked this identical question in the past, and am curious if responses have changed. I'll post the original poll results in a few days for you to compare.
I am new to brushes and got off the gel in a can and went with Proraso White soap and a super cheap 100% natural bristle brush for maybe 5 bucks at Sally's Beauty with a plastic handle.
Initially I liked it but now I am shaving bristle off my face.
I would like a firm brush that can really...
