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.

I've tried 3 so far:
Lightfoot's Pure Pine - the scent was perfect, but the soap was crap. Really, truly crap (in my opinion).
Stirling Scots Pine Sheep - decent scent, too light and not "piney" enough. Good...
Well yesterday actually:biggrin1: I had a smallish cigar about 36-38 ring gauge or so that my mother rolled for me on her last trip to Puerto Rico. Think a corona but just a bit thicker. Sweet finish as many Puerto Rican cigars seem to. I've had better, but not as much fun!
Lately I've buckled down and started adding all my tins and jars to tobaccocellar.com. It was a long time coming and I figured it would be worth it to just do it and get it over with. I'll admit it's kind of fun seeing how many pounds and how old your tins are in a spread sheet. I recommend it for...
