The 200th Cutting Board, Third Time ‘Round   11 comments

Mr-Ms-Logo---LargeThe rarest of air.

I only get to reach this summit of inventory creation occasionally … it’s only happened twice before. But, today, I’m pleased to announce that I have 200 boards in inventory.

However briefly.

Depending on how sales go at our weekend event, actually, I will probably be below 200 boards come Sunday. So, I must enjoy it while I can!

I was very busy in the shop in July, and finished over 100 boards during the month. Some of those left immediately as commissioned pieces, but I did successfully grow the inventory, especially for Cheese Boards & Magic Bottle Openers. I made very few cutting boards as I define them, but this board made it to the finish line. Two things make this board very unusual for me:

  1. It’s only Hard Maple. It’s the classic end grain cutting board, of course, but most people prefer the boards I make with an array of colorful exotic woods in them. I enjoy making the classic, but only get to make a few each year, so I have to make the most of each opportunity.
  2. This board, like the cheese boards featured yesterday, is also square. And I think that’s now out of my system. Back to my rectangular world.
