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.

Well I bet this doesn't happen often, but I picked up my Parker 26C yesterday and the handle fell off! :blink:
More specifically, it seems to have failed where the threaded central shaft connects to the cap (I think that's the name?)
I never dropped it so the only thing I can think of is that I...
Today, I decided to stop in at the one local Antique Shop in town. Place is huge, used to be the old Post Office, and I think even after roaming through the place for many years, I've never delved into every little nook and cranny in the place.
Virtually the size of a Basketball Court.
Hi guys. I've been doing DE shaving now for over two and a half weeks, and for my face it's just not living up to its promise at this point. I'm getting pretty significant irritation every shave, and the shaves aren't very close either even after multiple passes. I'm trying to do what you guys say...

For years I have had an on and off again try at smoking a pipe. I love the idea of it. I really love the smell and taste of aro's but am plagued with tongue bite. I really want to learn to smoke aro's but ether I get a tingling in the mouth or on the tongue or it out and out burns. This happens...
Here's another German razor maker who produced some very nice razors in the mid-1930s -- before the onset of WWII. They made slants along with some non-slant style razors. But these 2 -- especially the invisible ("Wonder Woman") designed one -- are among my favorites.
The marbled Bakelite...
From posts in various other threads I know there are more of you gents out there, so this is sort of a roll call. A "one razor guy" is defined as a gent who either has one razor that is used every shave or almost every shave or is still searching for that one "perfect" razor to serve that purpose....
