We just got our Jatoba hardwood cutting board in from Custom Cutting boards this week. A beautiful 2" slab of wood, nice addition to our classroom kitchen at the shop.

    I made this cutting board my self over 20 years ago.  I expected it to be disposable and figured I would make a new one about every six months.  Made out of red oak, and runs through the dish washer about twice a week.

    Looks too nice to cut on.  I like your timer as well, I saw one like it in a Restaurant Supply a few years back but they wanted around $40 for it and it seemed like a lot for timer at the time.

    Beautiful board, Smitty!  
    After cutting up only the first two cooks off my Egg, and seeing the juice flow off my old board and onto the counter and floor, I sprung for a "moated" board, although its not near as purty as yours.  Enjoy!

    Beautiful !  I have a dilemma about cutting boards.  If they're too soft, your knife makes cut marks in them.  If they're too hard, it dulls your knife.

    I hope your board is too hard.  It's too pretty to have cut marks in it.

    I go the way of have good knives, sharpen them about every 4 to 6 months and have a good hard cutting board.  I would rather have to sharpen my knives then have bacterial issues with cutting boards.

    I believe that cooks illustrated did an article a couple years ago about the natural enzymes in wood killing bacteria and how wood cutting boards are actually safer than other materials. Most of my knives cost double what even a nice custom cutting board does so I stick with softer boards and will replace them if need be. I recently found this chunk of wood on sale at a William Sonoma outlet for $60 and really like it. Thats two 9 pound boneless shoulders on it so needless to say it's pretty big. Wish I had better pics of it. If you ever watch Chopped its the same board they use on the show.
