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.

Meanwhile safety razors were emerging - the Kampfe brothers et...
Hello dear forum members i like to know if there are quality badger brushes under the $20 that perform well and have decent backbone to build a good layer.
I hope to find information and experience here.
Thank you dear members.
I'm a fairly infrequent shaver (once or twice a week). I'm finally getting near the bottom of my shave soap. I believe it was a Razorock mentholated soap. Based on looking at the Razorock website, it seems like they have discontinued their line of hard soaps and now only carry soft soaps....
Herein I submit, according to my own observation and not based on any scientific method, my personal opinion on the most common shaving myths.
YMMV, so if you read this and don't agree - that's your option. You don't have to agree with me, and I don't have to agree with you!
