PLEASE NOTE:  As you can see my cutting board inventory is getting very depleated. For the past couple of weeks, I've had a run on items needing to be turned on the lathe & have not been able to re-stock my cutting boards. I hope to overcome this soon, but, in the mean while, if you have a special need, please don't hesitate to make a request, as I will make time for your project.  Thank you for your patience & business...........

SPECIAL ORDER;
Nicely grained piece of Texas Honey Mesquite Wood inlaid with Sleeping Beauty Turquoise. Very tight grain. Approximate size is; 8-1/4" x 13-3/4" x 3/4". Pre-conditioned with two hand rubbed coats of a non-toxic, food-safe, bees wax based sealant.  Item #7833.   Signed & dated by artist/craftsman..
$140.00 SOLD

SPECIAL ORDER:
"Live Edge" Cutting Board.  Customer requested a live edge style board & this is what I came up with. Leaving the outer layers of the tree intact, gives you a wonderful blend of color combinations not seen in a more conventional board design. This piece of Texas Honey Mesquite Wood has a beautifully grained heartwood & I was able to leave small sections of the inner, cream colored Cambium, as well as several areas of the  rich, darker brown outer bark. Combining the sky blue inlaid Sleeping Beauty Turquoise, you come up with a pretty unique cutting board. Customer also requested the addition of one of my Cheese Knives & I have suggested the "mini-cheese/veggie knife, because of its versatility for use with both soft and hard cheeses (works great on veggies too.)  Approximate size is:  10" x 16" x 3/4".  Pre-conditioned with two hand rubbed coats of a non-toxic, food-safe, bees wax based sealant. Item #7840.  Signed & dated by artist/craftsman.

Free Form, Live Edge Handcrafted Wooden Cutting Board. Beautiful grain pattern to this board & I left it natural with a live edge, giving a nice contrast between the small areas of dark brown bark, inner cream colored Canbium & the rich reddish brown heartwood.

HANDCRAFTED WOODEN CUTTING BOARD ~ RUSSIAN OLIVEWOOD
                       
A NEW WOOD that my lumber supplier talked me into checking out. Have to say, I'm glad I listened. The grain and color contrasts in this board is GREAT! Just by itself this wood makes a beautiful cutting board, but add a little turquoise & everything pops.....This is a solid hardwood & will make an excellent cutting board. Hand finished with two coats of a food-safe, non-toxic, bees wax based sealant to protect from moisture. Approximate size is; 6-1/4" x 12-1/2" x a full 1" thick.  Item #6952.  Signed & dated by artist/craftsman.

Live Edge, Free Form, Handcrafted Wooden Cutting Board

Couldn't resist, had to try something different with this piece of wood. It was pretty chewed up due to the ravages of weather & insects, but, underneath all that wear & tear was a beautiful inner core. Fabulous grain patterns & I was able to leave a bit of the old bark & inner Cambium, giving a mix of several different colors. Blending the turquoise inlay in really gives you a rare visual treat. This is Texas Honey Mesquite Wood. Approximate size is; 7-1/2" x 14" x 1-1/2" thick. Pre-conditioned with two hand rubbed coats of a non-toxic, food-safe, bees wax based sealant. Item #B7750. Signed & dated by artist/craftsman.

AMERICAN HARD MAPLE CUTTING/CHOPPING BLOCK
Finally got around to making another one of these heavy duty boards. This is made out of a beautiful piece of American Hard Maple & is a great size. The inlay is Sleeping Beauty Turquoise. I have added rubber bumper feet to the underside. These guys will keep your board from sliding around, prevent moisture from getting to the wood & make your board easy to pick up. Finally, it's been pre-conditioned with two hand rubbed coats of a non-toxic, food-safe, bees wax based sealant. Approximate size is; 8" x 12" x 1-1/2" thick.  Item #7403.  Signed & dated by artist/craftsman.

               HANDCRAFTED WOOD CUTTING BOARD with WIRE CHEESE SLICER

           


This attractive cheese slicer and server tray is ideal for a cheese-and-crackers presentation at a party, yet it's small enough to bring along on a picnic. Its high-tension stainless-steel cutting wire cuts through semisoft cheeses without sticking and harder cheeses without breaking.  The cutting wire is warranted by the manufacturer and can be replaced by mail. Washing with a mild detergent is recommended to keep the tray in good shape over time. Texas Honey Mesquite & Sleeping Beauty inlay make this a highly distinctive gift. Approximate size is; 7-1/2" x 12" x a full 1" thick. Finshed with two coats of  a non-toxic, food-safe, bees wax based product.  Signed & dated by artist/craftsman. Item #6709.

$95.00*  
         

Once I got this piece planed & sanded down, a whole lot of character started showing up in the design & patterns of the grain. With the addition of the Sleeping Beauty Turquoise inlay & 2 hand rubbed finish coats of a non-toxic, food-safe, protectorant, this came out fine.. Approximate size is;  9" x 19" x 1" thick. I say "reclaimed" because this was a really beat up piece of lumber, when I recieved it from my Texas source. Probably should have gone into the fire wood pile. It took some extra effort, but I have to say this turned out to be one nice looking cutting board. Item #6388. Signed & Dated by Artist/Craftsman

END GRAIN CUTTING BOARDS

 End grain Cutting Boards are made by turning several pieces of wood with the end grain cut face up and then laminating them together. There are several distinct advantages to a end grain cutting surface as opposed to a long grain surface. Not only do they look beautiful but they are the supreme cutting surface used in butcher shops for centuries. The surface is much harder and more durable than regular cutting boards and resists knife marks as well as keeping your knives sharp longer. A regular cutting board with the grain running the length of the board will soon show signs of wear due to the knife edge severing and crushing the wood fibers. Some of the wood grain may even break loose and splinter creating a rough porous surface serving as a hiding place for bacteria. With a end grain board the wood fibers are standing on end allowing the knife edge to pass between the wood fibers there for extending the life of Handcrafted End Grain Cutting Board Mesquite Wood
the board. It's been a while, but I finally got another one of these done.  Only find time to do a couple of these end grain boards a year, but it's usually worth the wait. Have to say, I think this one came out pretty good.  Laminated eight end grain cut pieces of Texas Honey Mesquite together & than boardered with two outer side grained pieces.  Inlaid with Sleeping Beauty Turquoise. Approximate size is;  9-1/4"W x 14-1/4"L x a FULL 1-1/4" thick.  A bit larger than ones I've made in the past, but, I feel a little more functional. Finished with 2 hand rubbed coats of a non-toxic, food-safe, bees wax based sealant. Item #B7740. Signed & dated.............
