Thread: Cutting boards

  1. #1

    Cutting boards

    This is part of a batch of 100 cutting boards going to the States soon. Each is 1 1/2 inches thick by 17 x 24 and has from 17 to 20 species in each one.

    Wow...very cool, Jim! And a great way to use up those beautiful cut-offs!

    Your pictures and stories from the Amazon are always intriguing...thanks for sharing.

    What would boards like this run retail in the states? I see inferior face grain boards at rediculously high prices.

    Price

    Matt: I don´t know what they would sell for. These are for gifts for a trade show.

    All I see there is a lot of ruined beautiful pen blanks.

    Jim,

    Those are certainly gorgeous cutting boards...but...I'd be wondering about food coming into contact with some of the exotic species you've included there...

    Just wondering...

    Out of curiosity, what would be the concern, Marty? Why would the exotics be any worse than walnut, for example?

    Vaughn,

    I know we "shouldn't" use certain woods for cutting boards because of the toxicity of the wood. There are endless lists of the various toxicity levels of certain woods. Here are a few links:



    I wasn't implying Jim was doing anything wrong, or that his unique cutting boards posed any problem, I was just wondering about the wood he used...

    Toxic reaction

    Marty:

    I have been working with these tropical woods for 25 years and just because I walk backwards and drink beer thru my ear I dont think I have been affected at all.

    Seriously Marty , with MSG, radioactive powerlines over your house , fish contaminated to the point where you are warned to eat it once a month, peanut allergies , red dye allergies , not to mention the constant attack of ecoligists looking for your money to save them from loosing thier house wood allergies are low on my list of nerve wracking priorities.

    Just having fun but I think I made the point.

    I just noticed you are from Southern Georgia, now that is grits country and I only had them once but they could cause a reaction.

    Jim
