Generations of households have had to cope with the abominable, chronic problem of damage to kitchen countertops from overzealous slicing and dicing. After all, who hasn’t rammed a knife into said tabletop, while trying to separate two hamburger patties frozen together, only to chip a tooth on that ever-present formica shard?
Now, especially with the advent of Corian and granite countertops, careless filleting results not only in unsightly scratches and scars on your surface, but raises heck with your workksharp-ed edges of your knives.
I pondered the situation, and came up with this: A fibrous structural tissue with a cellular composition that resists all sharp objects, tools and knives, to be placed between your wild boar road-kill and your precious counter-top.
I just can’t think of a name for it.
Seriously...my wife complained to me this morning about how her 20 yr old cutting board will no longer lie flat on the counter, and would I please make her a new one? An hour later, from a stock of laminated maple, I presented this to her.
Now, hmmm, I should start a thread about what finish to use on it, cuz I got absolutely no freakin’ idea.
Wow… start to finish in an hour, what a break from my ungodly long, complicated projects that take forever to complete. Hope ya like it!!
