Our 1st Carving!!
Though this has been “on the list” to try for some time, we needed a special order to give us the push and it happened.
The font style and size of the T needed to be chosen. Our client picked Merriweather, we recommended the size and away we go!
The template for the T took some time and with a few adjustments the carving begins. We did have a backup large board – just in case.
As our cutting board designs evolve and grow, we are realizing what our customers tend to respond too and what wood species sells the fastest. Any guesses?
Rustic Cherry Set – Shown in small and medium sizes. Though since the Sandy arrived, our smalls aren’t as popular. It’s medium and large all the way!
Big brother Preston and little sister Wendy are both tremendous hits.
Small circles are still selling, only because they are so darn cute…the mediums are a more reasonable size. And, a larger end grain circle is in the works. Stay tuned!
Another big brother – little sister set. The Ryan and the Sandy shown in Walnut – Maple combo.
Small – Medium – Large, will likely become Medium and Large. Learning as we go is great fun.
Ok, back to the most popular wood species…if you guessed walnut, you are correct!
Thanks for stopping by our blog, comments are welcome.
Yes, shapes are happening!

Rustic Cherry, see the grain variation? Love that.
This side wins me over, I am drawn to the character of the wood.
