Walnut is very popular and makes a beautiful board. Many times the walnut will have curly designs in the wood and cream color streaks that add character.

One of A Kind

I have started making one of a kind cutting boards and serving boards! Each board is numbered and is designed to be unique so that it can be displayed in your home but also makes a great accessory for cooking, cutting and serving.

Like all the boards, I  hand select each  piece of walnut, maple or cherry. Did I mentioned all my boards are handcrafted one at a time by me and only me and they all  have beautiful grain, shiny finish, and smooth to the touch.

My supplier for walnut told me today that the price of walnut is going up very soon, it appears that there is a shortage of walnut. Only hope that the price doesn’t go up too much!

The above board is Curly Flamed Maple, as you can see it has beautiful color and character! My wife really  loves the Curly Flamed Maple, if I don’t get a buyer for this board she said that she will be keeping it.

What do you think of my new boards?

Round Walnut Cutting Boards or Serving Boards with Handle

I have been really busy making cutting boards, serving boards, and custom woodwork for special wedding gifts. I have gotten a good many orders for wedding gifts. It seems that the round walnut cutting board in all three sizes is the most popular at the moment.

This year I was fortunate to buy a large amount of beautiful walnut 1 inch thick, random widths and lengths. This walnut is beautiful with colors ranging from light to dark and includes some black streaking.

A good friend of mind gives everyone he knows getting married the same wedding gift. On the day of the wedding he buys a new cooler and fills it with water bottles, sodas, beer, wine, champagne and ice. Along with the cooler full of drinks he also gives one of my cutting boards. The bride and groom always love the cutting board and the cooler full of drinks, especially if they can take the cooler with them on their first night together!

Cutting boards are very popular with people looking for a special handcrafted gift. All of my work is handmade so they become an instant heirloom and will last forever.

With each order I always send along my Wood Conditioner and instructions on how to take care of the board. My Wood Conditioner is also handmade using food grade mineral oil and food grade beeswax packaged in tins and will help keep the board looking good.

Today I shipped these three boards directly to the bride and groom in Pittsburgh, PA for someone who ordered the boards as a wedding gift. Nice surprise, I wish I could be there when they open the package.

Is Today the Day!

I have been trying to get several large chains to purchase my cutting boards. I’ve spent alot of time writing letters, sending emails and shipping samples. Only a couple of the stores that I have contacted have responded but were not interested. I had one store that I received a requested for a sample board. The sample got shipped earlier in the week. Several local shops are selling my boards which is nice.

Since I love to cook I watch alot of cooking, baking and grilling shows, including the Food Network. I got the idea that would try to contact a few of the chefs so I send out some emails. I got one response today from Ina Garten, who is the chef on Barefoot Contessa. I am custom making her a board and hope to have it shipped next week. I sure hope she loves it and uses it on her show.

I handcraft each end grain chef cutting boards one at a time from maple and cherry in my shop. It is a great product that will last a lifetime and will look beautiful in any kitchen. Don’t you just love the look, the ramdon pattern of Maple and Cherry wood makes each board unique. It’s GORGEOUS! My boards are sure to be a converstaion piece at your next party. What a great way to display cheese with wine.
