Getting Serious About Cutting Boards   5 comments

Mr-Ms-Logo---LargeIt’s February, so it’s time to get serious. It’s been a nice couple of months without any events … but those days are gone.

Our first event is this weekend, so these boards were finished this evening in anticipation of a great weekend in Bakersfield.

Which is not something you hear said too often, by the way.

These end grain boards include some very large cutting boards (including a rather spectacular Jarrah & Bloodwood board that my photography simply does not capture) as well as some large chaos boards. These are full size cutting boards of many designs and sizes, so there’s something here for everyone … well, something for 10 homes. Let’s just leave it at that!

  1. I really like the Jarrah board! Wishing you all the best of success this weekend!

    • The Jarrah is the star … and about twice the weight of similar sized boards made out of Black Walnut!

      • Really?? I take it that Jarrah is an extremely dense wood? How does it work up, easy or difficult? Daddy’s only niece brought him an ebony statue from Africa years ago that had been carved green then allowed to dry. The bottom was not level so he tried to shave it off – after trying several knives, a file, a rasp and anything else he could think of, he put it to the electric grinder in his shop – and produced just visible scrapes on the wood. To this day, it still rocks on its uneven base!! Hope the Jarrah works a little more easily!

        • It does. Ebony is the one of the hardest woods and very difficult to work. Not for cutting boards … but looks great on Greene & Greene-styled furniture. The Jarrah works fine, but does sometimes have mineral inclusions that have to be avoided. It’s always something!

  2. I finally bought my second piece from Mr. Mowry. I have a walnut and maple cutting board and I love it. Just purchased a lazy Susan and I love it! Thanks for being a wonderful craftsmen and citizen of our earth.
