Large and Very Large Cutting Boards   Leave a comment

Mr-Ms-Logo---LargeI display boards at events as large as 16″ x 21″.

Those are large cutting boards, especially when they are 1-1/2″ thick. But do I make bigger boards, people ask?

Of course. And today I delivered 2 of them.

These boards are not for the faint of heart. They are big. They are heavy. They are big enough for the Thanksgiving turkey (and that’s why they were delivered TODAY!). And, importantly, you need a lot of space for a board this big. If your house has an open floor plan, and the kitchen has an island with a 24″ square space … you’re in business.

Just don’t forget that you need a sink big enough to wash these boards in!

One final thought about today’s delivery: each year, I’ve had one board that was delivered horribly late. I missed Christmas for one customer (I thought it was a pickup, not a board to be shipped.), and for 2 customers, I missed an early fall delivery only to barely make a Thanksgiving delivery.

I carefully explain to everyone that it’s just me in the shop … and the boards will get done in the next batch after I get the order. But, when I miss a window, or make a mistake … well, as they say, the wheels come off. And that is never pleasant.

The happy ending is that the new owners of these boards were ever so excited to actually hold them in their hands today. I trust that made the waiting somewhat more tolerable, as they now get to experience the happy ending.
