Cutting boards 30% off sale

I have posted and been searching for a butcher block style about 2 inch or slight less.  I wanted a custom edge or end grain.  I wanted drip valley around the edge but yet reversible flat on the other side.  I wanted Recessed cut out handles.  I really wanted it etched and filled but couldn't afford it.  There was a member here making them but lost touch.

I settled for this for now.   Teakhaus has a sale 30% off and free shipping.  Got a 24x18x2 for $120 At the Atlanta Grill Company.  Wife found the smaller one at home goods.  Then I found the sale site online to share.  Ignore the 3ft spaghetti.

    @CTMike makes some beautiful boards.
    If it is worth doing, it is worth overdoing.

    It amazes me, how many people do not realize how the future works.

    JD-you will love the thicker boards. They don’t move under pressure.  I made my shop board 2 1/2” thick, and it’s a workhorse & heavy beast.
    The walnut boards in the house are 1 1/2” thick, and the wife uses them daily.
    Enjoy your new toy!

    If you go too thick on a counter top cutting board it will force you to change your motion and technique while cutting. My Boos block has to be pushing 3.5 - 4" thick. It was quite the adjustment coming from a half inch cutting board. Something to be mindful for when looking at cutting boards. 

    i usually use the cutting boards on the kitchen table because of this. even my boos block table is lower than the countertop

    Regardless of the thickness that is one beautiful board!

  • @TechsasJim …thanks.  That one was made with some scrap oak pallet lumber.  The ones in our kitchen are walnut, maple, and cherry wood.

    Ditto. My workhorse boards are either HDPE or UHMW. No muss, no fuss, no oiling. Most will fit in the dishwasher if needed.
    A lot of cool looking boards on the market but so many of them have patterns that would probably give me vertigo, which is the last thing I need when chopping veg.

    I have a hole on one corner to tie it to a rope, nice to toss it in the river over night after cleaning and filleting fish. Quick bleach in the morning. It's a better board, just doesn't present a cheese spread well😁

    If I can’t fit a cutting board in the dishwasher, I don’t want it.
