Cutting Board Process

When you buy a cutting board from us there are a lot of hours and labor that have to go into making one of these beauties. We start with selecting lumber from our local mill - Kansas Walnut is one of our favorites because we can get it locally and the color and grain are just beautiful.

There is nothing quite as warm and comforting as fresh cut lumber. Choosing the right lumber for a project relies on a lot of factors be it size, hardness, grade, or grain. I am quite partial to using walnut in my project, for me, there is nothing quite like spalted walnut. These pieces are soon to be laminated and made into beautiful cutting boards. ⠀

We are working on laminating boards for our new walnut cutting boards. This is just the first lamination. We will do this process of sanding, cutting, and lamination one more time. Cutting boards can seem simple, but a lot of work and loved go into turning bits of lumber into beautiful end grain cutting boards. ⠀

Surfaced and cut to size. Time to start finishing. Also should pick a different place to set things than my table saw... Looks like finishing that work station is in my future.
