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.

The brush has obviously not broken in yet, but it has amazing backbone and ultra soft...
Welcome to the new week and be sure to support our "Saint" Sue Moore charity auction. With the leaves changing up north, it's time for our "Autumn" theme week. For me, that means breaking out my Parfumerie Generale Coze 02, which reminds me of a walk in the woods on a Fall day. Next...
Thinking about getting a Shavemac knot for a handle I have. The handle I have has a 26mm hole. Probably go with a 25mm knot. I haven't used one of their regular 2 band brushes so I'm not sure where to set the knot. I typically face lather. Any help is appreciated!
Alright guys, quick back story first.
I am 24 years old and like all guys my age have been brought up on the 3, then 4, then 5 blade cartridges for as long as I can remember.
No matter what cartridge I used I never got a good shave, rash/burning/neck lumps/ingrown hairs/acne etc - if I used...

My wife picked this bowl up at Wal-Mart about 3 weeks ago in the dish section for $4.50 and its a great lathering bowl for an even greater price, the only thing that it lacks that other more expensive bowls have are the ridges in the bottom. what do you use for a lathering bowl?
