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.

I'm curious as to what others are using as part of their travel kits. Please post pics if you have them. I'm always looking for new ideas.
I put together what I call my "minimalist" travel kit. I like to travel as light as possible.

I'm new to Cella and I've enjoyed everything about it. Apart from the smell! Not that it's terrible or anything, just a bit odd to have such a sickly sweet smell from a shaving soap. Not something I'd use every day, only for that reason. On the other hand Biotique has also a lovely summery smell,...
So I've long since mapped the grain etc, put as little pressure and as shallow an angle as possible while still being able to cut. My face and even upper lip are fine. My neck still gets alot of irritation. I've found little to no pulling or resistance going xtg/atg on the sides and wtg/atg on...

If you are interested in this PIF, simply reply with the words, "Count me in!" I will randomly select a winner.
I am willing to ship these anywhere in the world so...
