Last year I made and sold close to 1200 cutting boards, all end grain. I only use hard maple, cherry and walnut and stay away from the exotics some seem to be so entranced with. With 6 months of the year gone, I believe we will blow the 1200 number out of the water with the busiest season yet to go.
The board on the left made from walnut will be going to the Czech Republic this week, the border board is available for sale, the brick pattern will be going to CA this week and the maple board in the front is waiting in line to be finished and delivered.
The second photo is of the maple rack which will be filled up and overflowing by the end of the week. I sell more of the maple boards than cherry or walnut so I try to keep them in stock.
I don’t use scrap, period. The last photo is of the load I brought back to the shop this morning. By 2 pm it will be processed and on the shelf and in two to three weeks all will be gone, made into boards and the shelves will be well on their way to be filled and/or overflowing.
