The 200th Cutting Board, 6th Time ‘Round   6 comments

Mr-Ms-Logo---LargeRare air.

When you reach the summit of a mountain, you’re breathing rare air. And when I have 200 boards in inventory … it’s rare. Very rare.

It did happen 4 times last year … but only for about 2 days each time. It’s inevitable when I build my inventory up, pushing for my next big event. I barely reach the summit … and then the boards are sold when I go to that big event that weekend.

But that’s OK: it’s all about the journey.

Here, then, is the official 200th cutting board in only the 6th time I have achieved that nice, round number or accomplishment.


Cutting Board 17 – 403. Cherry, Hard Maple, Goncalo Alves, Yellowheart, Jatoba, Caribbean Rosewood, Bloodwood & Purpleheart. End Grain. 14″ x 18″ x 1-1/4″.

I call it Kaye’s board, as she received the first version of it.

I’ve made this basic design 8 times over the last 2 years. This retrospective of photos has taught me 2 things:

  • Every one of these boards is truly different!
  • My product photography has gotten better, but I’ve got a long, long way to go.
