Handmade Wooden Butcher Blocks
Have you considered custom made butcher blocks?
If you have nicer knives (as Lisa and I do), and you like to cook, you know quite well that cutting on a glass cutting board on top of your kitchen counter is a disaster for your knives. Whether you are trimming meat or fish, or cutting and prepping vegetables, having a wooden butcher block to use is guaranteed to improve the useful life of your kitchen cutlery. The question then becomes – do I buy the $30 wooden cutting board at the big box retail store, or is it worth investing in a nice butcher block or wooden cutting board that will stand the test of time?
Having looked at a whole host of offerings from the custom makers on CustomMade, I have to say that the price difference between a handmade or custom made butcher block and a store-bought one is not so great as to discourage the average purchaser. And of course, the quality difference is substantial!
I’ve focused on highlighting some examples of handmade wooden butcher blocks specifically, but I will be covering handmade cutting boards in another blog post, which is located right here. But for now, check out these amazing examples of wooden butcher blocks handmade to customer specifications – and click here for more examples of custom made butcher blocks.
