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.

Greetings all of my newly found brothers of the Bush and the Blade!
While I am a "Noob" here and in many ways, "Greener Than Green" to the art of Wet Shaving, I find myself as addicted to the art of the wet shave as the rest of the Badger & Blade membership!
If you don't mind, please just...
OK, I guess I am an infidel. I have adopted most of the culture of wet shaving. I have a really nice shaving brush, I use good shave creams, I only shave after a shower, I'm careful about preping my face, and I'm particular about after care.
And I use a cart razor.
I understand that this...
Thin Section Slide.
Finally - I think I sent this out in May. Ironically, I probably won't be able to get it on the scope for a few days.
This section is 30Ám thick, no cover slip or sealing/polishing.
I just tried smell Stirling Ozark Trails, that was PIF'ed to me. I love the scent, and it provides a very slick lather.
Which other Stirling soaps do you members like, or dislike. And, why do you like or dislike them?
This is not a collectors question :) So, how many straights do you have and use and what is your favorite straight as far as how it feels/shaves?
For whatever reason my Boker seems to shave the best but I'm working on getting them all like that.
I have 7 straights and use them fairly...
