Butcher Block Cutting Boards

I can't believe it's been soooo long since I've done anything with my blog!  Is it too early to make a New Year's resolution to post more frequently!?!  I vow to post at least once a month.  There... I've said it.  Now I just need to hold myself to it!  At least this way, I haven't set an unrealistic goal.  If I said once a week, I could see myself not updating every week.  Saying once a month minimum, I can do that!  If I post more frequently, then I can pat myself on the back and have a feel good moment!

So to get down to the nuts and bolts of it... the reason for my posting today is purely on a technical note (or should I say *lack of* technical note.  I have fallen in love with Pinterest and I am not savvy enough to figure out how to post pictures on Pinterest without pinning it from a website.  So now I can pin from this page and I don't need a Tylenol to get me through the figuring it out ;-)

My brother in law is starting to make these cutting boards.  They are BEAUTIFUL!!!  They truly are!  They are made from butcher block wood.  Since I am not a wood worker, I couldn't accurately relay how he makes them without getting my terms messed up... something about jigging, router, sanding (ok... so I'm not unschooled enough to not know what sanding is... but you get my point!)  He is making these to sell.  Lucky you!  He is taking orders for the following sizes: Small- 12 1/2 X 10, Medium- 13 X 17, Large- 17 1/2 X 15 1/2, and an Extra Large- 21 X 12 1/2.  Prices range from $20-$50 depending on what size you want.  They will come with a butcher block coating on them, but you will need to re-treat the boards periodically to keep the wood in condition.  Home Depot carries a Butcher Block wood conditioner.  If you are local to Utah County, you can pick them up from him, if you are not local, you can have them shipped to you.  I'm sure the shipping will vary in price depending on size as well.  You can reach Richard at (801) 367-5398
