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.

Hi, I've been lurking for awhile and finally decided to say hi. I'd always wet-shaved with a can of foam and a cartridge razor but
straight razors intrigued me. Probably because of old westerns like High Plains Drifter. I finally decided to go for it because I got tired of sending cartridges to...
Just ordered a vdh de from target today. Can't wait to try it. I have seborrhea dermatitis so if I do grow out my facial hair, I get real itchy all over my face, so I've tried to start shaving more frequently than once a week and just not zip through with an electric razor, so all the dead skin is...
Hello, gentlemen (and any ladies that may happen to browse the forums here). Long time lurker, first time poster here. DE shaving has long fascinated me and I've frequented the forums here sporadically for a few years but have never taken the dive into DE shaving. I guess I have been a little...
Hi fellas. Just dropping in to introduce myself.
I am new to shaving with a DE / Straight but I have used a brush and soap for years with multiblade razors. I shaved with canned goop when I started but always gets bumps (ingrown hairs?) and razor burn/irritation everytime I shave and have...
Hey all just wanted to introduce myself. I wet shaved when i was younger but brew a beard for the longest time. Then my son got me back into wet shaving a two years or so ago. And I love it more now than I ever did.
I've enjoyed snooping around here picking up tips as I work on improving my technique with my EJ de89. I've been at it for about 1.5 months. I've used Derby's (that came with it), Personna Blues, and currently Astra SPs. I'm on the second of three Astras and perhaps it's just this...
