Getting It Handled   3 comments

These aren’t a new idea.

These aren’t really a new design … but they are definitely a bit different. The handle is longer. There’s a juice groove on most of them. Not quite new, I think, but definitely different.

I’ve got a plan, you see.

I call these boards Sous Chef boards, as I think they are mobile. Give one to your assistant to chop an onion … and then they can carry the board to their workspace, chop away, and then return to you so the onion can be added to your work.

It’s good to have help. And, a mobile board works best with a handle, I think.

So, here’s the first batch in a long time of handled boards. But, wait, there’s more.

I’m making 3 other related designs with handles, and combining them with a 4th serving piece/cutting board that’s going to be my next post. When all 5 of these boards are done, I’ll be making a new interactive display to hold them all.

Big display. Big idea.

So you see, it’s all in process, but I’m going to get it handled.

Choosing: A Very Good Idea   Leave a comment

This was one of my Mrs M’s best ideas of 2019.

The idea was so good, fortunately, that I was required to make a LOT of them. A good problem to have, yes?

Garlic Dipping Boards, for the win. These are 2-sided boards. One side has a carve-out to sit the Great Garlic Grater into, and the other side is plain … to be used for charcuterie, or serving bread, or whatever you like. You’re an adult, you get to choose.

There are 2 shapes of Great Garlic Graters, hexagonal & square. The buyer also gets to choose which shape, then the color of the GGG, and then the wood design of the Garlic Dipping Board to pair with it. Choosing is part of the fun.

Some say that I make the choosing very hard … and I believe that is my job. You see, I get to choose, too.
