I took all my leftovers from making end grain boards and made this nice little long grain block. I cant make them fast enough…people buy them on sight! Like (degoose) I love to watch the wood light up when I apply the oil and beeswax for sealing. I really do enjoy making these and knowing they will be around for a very long time.

Happy Cutting!

Hi jaykaypur…yes as a matter of fact I have had some luck with the farmers markets. A few of the local hardware stores are beginning to shelve these for me also. The extra money sure helps on lumber costs.

Good to me you neighbor!

Great looking cutting board. I can see why they sell so good.
