Advice on cutting board / butcher block

hmansion I read your posts about the product you received the other day from David (The Boardsmith) It is great to receive it is it not? I bought a 30x22x2" cutting board from David I beleive back in Feb of this year (2011)After my initial order from his website, I was in contact with him via e-mail as well as a few phone calls. At first I was kind of hesident ot call him so much on the phone (as I was chomping at the bit to receive my board. After talking to David via phone and several e-mails I was completely assured (to my satisfaction) that everything I had wanted would be realized. When it came I (beleive I called him) or via e-mail, and told him that I had expected a very beautiful board, but upon inspection it had surpassed any desires I had had before hand. It did take a few weeks to get in the mail (iabeit by UPS). I'm pleased that youdid receive your board, and hope you have as much delight as I have had with mine. I plan to order another one in the near future,but as you know the econamy is not that great as I type this. I would suggest to anyone that wants a nice cutting board, that could be a piece of furniture, please call David Smith. You will receive a board that you specified, but not only that. I beleive it will surpass all your expectations. One thing that I have heard on these topics is that the delivery may be a little longer than anticipated, but beleive me that it is not his fault. In my case he had to order some more wood stock that I wanted my board constructed of. Don't be shy to call David or send e-mail (as I did). I'm sure he loves to talk to his customers. I can't recommend The BoardSmith more highly. All it takes is to order a board and receive it in the mail. I know you will be just as happy as I was, and will be in the future. I plan to pass this board down to my future generations, as I'm sure they will do. Thanks' for the oportunity to tell you of my expeeience with David Smith. Hope all goes well with all that read this in the coming year. David Moore

Advice on cutting board / butcher block

Not calling anybody "petty". I think that their issues could be resolved without much ado about it is all I said. Anyway I know if you're looking for something that you want and the least thing is wrong is a big deal to some. I have had a very deloghtful experience with David. Sorr if you took it the wrong way.

Advice on cutting board / butcher block

I just recieved my new cutting board from David( The Boardsmith). It's a custom 22x30 x2 inch board. I could not be happier with it. The construction is perfect as well as the beauty of it. It's a Mahogany board that to me is more like a piece of well made furniture. The only word I have for his piece of art is Beautiful. It took about four weeks to recieve it only because he had to order some new wood stock. I haven't used it yet because when I got it in the mail I oiled it immedeatly, and it soaked up the oil yvery quickly. I have been oiling it 5 times a day for three days before I attempt to cut anything on it. I think that will for sure prolong the life of the board. I have read some petty complaints here and there about his shipping(not his work or product). I can't say enough good things an\bout David and his work. I will deffinatly be purchasing more cutting boards from him soon. I had NO problem with communicating with David via emailo or phone in the least. He does exactly what he says he will and exactly to your spefications. I will be ordering one soon by the size of 30x 24 x2.. It will be a hard maple center with black cherry border. Thank you so much David for my just perfect cutting borad. I reccomend any and everybody to call or email David for a fine piece of furniture. The only thing was I might have bothered David a little because I was chomping at the bit to recieve my new board. Good luck with your future endevors David,and I will be calling you soon.

Vintage Henckels

My parents have a set like that,which they got from their father who was 86 when he died in 1963. I would think my grandfather bought the set after getting married too. So that puts the knives and steel pretty old.

Teak chopping block by ProTeak

I'm thinking about getting one of these chopping blocks,and wondered about the quality so forth. They do look beautiful, but the Boardsmith said something about using a board you couldn't eat the fruit from the tree it's made of. Has anybody had any experience with this board? Thanks' David

Cowboy, that's what I think too about the belt sander. The one thing I like about the EdgePro is it does let you keep a precise angle every time(which I can't do hand holding) I think that is the single most important aspect of blade sharpening. Thanks'

I don't think that is the brand Chem. It looks like it has a lighter brown almost bone looking handle. I thought it may be the Nenox but I'm not sure. They are defintly single bevel knives.

Do you have a deep fryer?

I bought a Krups deep fryer from Williams Sonoma for 299.00. You can't beat it. The only one on the market with a full NO FOG window that I'm aware of. I cook all sorts of things in it. Really does french fries great, and as I'm a fisherman fries my stripers like nothing I've used before. Simply the best on the market, and I've tried most of them so far. Happy cooking.

Thanks' etub. That's one thing though that I don't have much of LOL Usually the steel keeps them reitvely sharp for my needs. It is fun to play around with new toys though.

I think I might just invest in some stones thanks'. I had a set of Wusthof's but gave them to a friend when I started collecting the myrid Shun knives. I do like a Japenese knife all around. I think they have the shape and feel for me,also sharp as anything I could get myself.

What do you think about the Nenox? Is that the right name? Also who would know what knives Morimoto(spelling) uses on Iron Chef?

I have to agree with you there Chem. They are next to nothing in cost (which I like) and real easy to hone.

I thought about that or the belt sander,but would that not eat away the steel too quick? IDK

I also fell in love with the Kiwi brand. Very sharp knives out of the box(for me anyway). I do love a sharp kitchen knife. Of course the one I let company use are the ones that I won't mind having dulled by them.

Thanks' I did just order a couple of veg. knives from the Wokshop. I can't wait to get them inthe mail. I suppose that would be a great knife to try it on. I'm not very good with a water stone so have to rely on electric for now. I have have my Shuns for 2 years and havn't had to sharpen them because I do use their steel every time I use these knives.

Yes that's the one cowboy.I'm a knife freak I guess you could say. I have a set of Shun Pro,Shun Elite several classics and a Bob Kramer. I also have Globals,but don't like them much. Like you said I would have to try it on one of my cheaper knives. I would think it does work pretty well though. Thanks' for the feedback.
