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.
Please send an email with any questions or to arrange other payment methods or shipping outside of CONUS.
I recently started using the Proraso white pre shave cream before my shaves. I have been using pure organic coconut oil but wanted to try something else to see if it would be better. After 2 uses with 2 different shaving soaps just to be sure I have come to the conclusion that the...
So today I tried cold water shaving purely by luck. The hot water in our building ran out in the middle of my shower so in had to lather and shave with cold water. I think it was destiny because I've never enjoyed a shave more. The menthol in my Proraso Green combined with the cold water is the...
I have had my wife's grandfathers razors for several years now, and recently took the plunge to have them cleaned up and honed. Sent a Case Red Imp and a John Pritzlaff Brilliant off to Glen and got them back on Monday.
Since I took today off, I took the plunge this morning and tried out the...
Can we talk about Slants? Why do you like them? Why do you NOT like them? I want to hear people's opinions of them.
Looking at the Merkur slants and interested what it is about slants that make them attractive/offensive to folks. To me they seem it would be a more efficient way to attack...
I've heard about these Israeli Personna blades and the consensus is that they are pretty good. Does anyone have any experience with these and are they worth sourcing? I'm a Feather user and have tried others here and there but always come back to my Feather blades.
I have received and returned 2 Bent Apple pipes recently because the draft drilling was in the upper third of the briar stem. The mouth piece is centered properly, but the drilling does not align with the hole in the mouth piece. The hole is instead in the top wall of the briar stem. Just received...
So I've been experimenting with Astras this month. Went through about 4 of them so far. Throughout the blade cycle it's all the same
1st & 2nd shave - usually I'll cut myself so I back off and just give it a light touch which doesn't trim my whiskers as much
3rd & 4th & 5th shave - this is...
What's that one watch you continually pull up online to gaze upon? The one that is just out of reach? The one that will require saving, sacrifices, planning, and patience to acquire?
My preferences are divers and "tool" watches. The Seiko Prospex Field Master is the one I lust after. An...
