Cutting boards

Cutting boards -5-7-9

Here is a simple, basic nothing fancy but very effective cutting board. These boards are made from 3/4″ thick solid piece of sugar maple. The total length from end of handle to the end of the cutting area is 14″. The workable length is approximately 10″ and approximately 9″ wide. Each handle has a hole for easy hanging off a hook for out of the way storage.  They can be finished with a food grade “Butcher Block” oil. Due to allergies etc. I do not finish the cutting boards unless requested at time of sale. The board may be slight oily upon receipt. We personally use 2 here at the house. One for cutting fresh foods that are to be eaten raw, and the other for cutting foods that needs to be cooked.

 I can make them in other woods that are local to area. Feel free to ask.

 Please Note: I have multiple cutting boards using this picture. The grain pattern will be different from what is shown in the pictures.

Coffee Grinders – Canning/mason Jars

MJCG2 (2)

Here is my reproductions of the mechanical grinders that some of our grandparents would have used with the exception that the grinding surfaces are made of ceramic. It is solid and functional, let alone aesthetically pleasing. It will also add that rustic touch, let alone make a great conversation piece. To me, you get to enjoy the coffee twice with one of these, once while you grind the coffee. The other when you drink the coffee. This is a burr grinder, which crushes the coffee bean, while others cut it.

The grinder itself is screwed on to a new Ball Mason canning jar. With this grinder I used a solid piece of red oak, finished with a natural/clear stain or Jacobean stain and multiple coats of shellac, and finished with a wax and hand buffed. The overall height of this grinder is approximately 12” tall. For a smaller box to ship with, I removed the handle. The handle has to be removed to adjust the grinding and reinstalled.

Cleaning and operating instructions come with each coffee grinder.

The base of the grinder is made from red oak and the drawer compartment is also made from red oak. The joinery that I used to make the base and drawer are butt joints and rabbit joints. The joints are then held with glue. The butt joints are reinforced with dowels. The wood is finished with a natural clear stain or a jacob bean stain, followed with a couple of coats of shellac.

 The inside on the drawer is finished with food based oil. The grinder sits on a base that measures approximately 4 3/4” tall, (widest 7” – narrowest 6”) wide and (widest 7” – narrowest 6”) depth. The overall height is approximately 12” tall. The inside drawer compartment is approximately 1” high, 3 3/4” wide and 3 3/4” deep. Depending on your grind, the drawer should hold up to 1/2 – 3/4 of a cup of your favorite fresh ground coffee.

Pepper Grinders

If you enjoy fresh ground pepper, then here is a unique handmade pepper grinder for you. It will bring a decorative and rustic touch to your kitchen. The woods I use, I select from mills that are local to me. The woods I pick are all rough cut; some of the boards have the edges left on them (referred to as “live edge”). The mills in turn harvest the woods local to them. I dimension the woods for my needs, glue them together, turn them on the lathe, sand, shellac, and finally hand waxing.

If you see something you and would like additional pictures, just send me the SKU# and your email addy.

Salt and Pepper Shakers

All1_tn

Here is a salt and pepper shaker set that is going to bring a accent to your table, besides being a conversation piece. The two pieces may look similar, but aren’t. I turn them one at a time on my lathe. The second is done by eye, using the first as a guide and without the use of a duplicator. The approximately size of the shakers is 3 1/2” tall and the base has approximately diameter of 1 7/8”. They are both made from solid maple. The tops unscrew for easy filling of your favorite salt and pepper. One top has 4 holes, while the other has 1 hole. The tops are interchangeable and chrome plated. Your salt and pepper is contained in a plastic compartment.

The finishes I use are 2 coats of shellac inside and out. The last thing is the outside is hand rubbed with a polishing. With smooth lines and soft curves, it is easily cleaned.

Nut Crackers

Here is a solid nutcracker to take on you toughest nuts. From walnuts which fit easily within the cup like cracker to a second cracker on the outside for your smaller nuts. With approximately 4 1/4” – 4 3/8 long handles to assist in the cracking of your nut. This one will stand out from all the others, for it is meant to crack nuts. It’s solid and heavy metal cracker, accented with wood turned handles. No 2 handles are the same. I try to make them look the same, but.

The overall approximate length of the cracker is 7 1/2”, the cup opening is approximate 1 3/4” wide, the handle spread varies with the design but is approximately 3” from center to center of each handle.

The wood handles are made from solid white oak. They are then finished with a couple coats of shellac, followed by a wax.
