No Roads   Leave a comment

Alaska has been called “The Last Frontier,” and at Lake Clark National Park and Preserve that holds true. This backcountry park – accessible by boat or aircraft – has no roads or campgrounds and only one hiking trail. For the intrepid few who reach this remote gem, solitude reigns in a land of immense glaciers, active volcanoes and boreal forests.

The Perfect Wedding Present   Leave a comment

Mr-Ms-Logo---LargeI make 4 kinds of boards that are often purchased to give as personalized wedding presents, and this post will (for the first time!) summarize all 4 in one place. It’s amazing how you never do some things that are really, really helpful when you get them done!

All of these boards are intended for 2-sided use. There are routed finger holds on the edges to help hold them as you move or flip them over. The first 2 boards are full-fledged cutting boards, with juice grooves on the front side (which also serves to protect the engraving). The back side of the board can be used for fruits and veggies … or whatever!

I endeavor to keep “blanks” of each of these boards on hand, so that I can engrave, finish and ship them to you within 3 weeks. But, please, don’t push the envelope for important wedding presents!

End Grain Wedding Board

This board is made from hard maple, and is in the classic “butcher block” end grain style. This board will show the least wear, as it’s end-of-the-board cutting surface will self heal when you oil the board.

13″ x 18″ x 1-1/4″. $150 + $20 shipping.

Edge Grain Wedding Board

This Hard Maple cutting board will last for decades with proper care. Styled much like the end grain version, above, this board has clearer engraving, since the sides of the boards are being engraved instead of the ends.

12″ x 16″ x 1-1/4″. $125 + $20 shipping.

The “Established” Board

The front of this board is display only, and the reverse side can be used as a cutting board or a board to serve cheese & crackers.

Engraving on the front can be in any style that you please; I’ve done many different layouts to suit the occasion. No wrong answers here!

9″ x 11″ x 3/4″. Black Walnut, Cherry & Hard Maple. $75 + $15 shipping.

The “Scrollwork” Board

This Hard Maple board is also intended for display on one side, and cutting or serving on the other. Engraving can be in any style you need.

The size is 7″ x 11″ x 7/8″.  $60 + $15 shipping.

Muscatatuck   Leave a comment

Muscatatuck National Wildlife Refuge – the first wildlife refuge in Indiana created 50 years ago this week – protects habitat for more than 280 species of birds like sandhill cranes. The refuge was also instrumental to the comeback of the state’s endangered North American river otter, serving as the first release site to bring populations back to healthy numbers. This amazing landscape of lakes, marshes and creeks is a quick trip from major metropolitan areas in Indiana, Ohio and Kentucky. Photo by Susan Harner, USFWS.

Alpenglow   Leave a comment

Fall has arrived at Glacier National Park, and it’s stunning. Crushing clouds and rain greeted Nate Luebbe at Glacier, but as he crested Logan Pass he was treated to one of the most spectacular alpenglow sunsets we’ve seen. “The sun shot golden fingers between jagged peaks and illuminated the clouds from below, and I couldn’t help but admire the timing. Montana was welcoming me home.” Photo by Nate Luebbe. Posted on Tumblr by the US Department of the Interior, 10/8/16.
