So I just had to post these. I dabble with woodworking (as you can see from some of my past projects), but this time I wanted to do something a little more traditional. For Christmas presents to my parents and my in-laws, I made some end grain butcher blocks. End grain butcher blocks are better for your knives and they show less cut marks after use (as apposed to standard side grain cutting boards). I made them from hard maple and Brazilian cherry. I routed out a notch on each side for handles (makes it easier to pick up) and some self leveling feet. They measure out to be about 13 inches deep, 18 inches wide, and 2 inches thick. They are definitely hefty and should last forever. I love these things and they were relatively simple to make, just a little time consuming. A big thanks goes out to thewoodwhisperer.com for showing me how to do these. Now I need to make one for myself. Enjoy

Actually, if I can make more of them and figure out how to get my etsy page up and running, I will have to make them available. You can buy these online for $100 and up. But I'm sure I can make them for less. Keep on the look out.

They're GORGEOUS, and I'm sure as you say they'll be useful for a long time. A high-quality butcher block is a very good thing to have.

Those are amazingly awesome!  I don't cook much myself, but I would LOVE to buy something like that for my sister, the culinary whiz.  Yes, please let me know if you are going to start selling those.  Cheesy
