Hi all, I just thought that a few of you out there might want to hear about my new Butcher Block I just purchased.. I was out surfing the web and I wasnt really looking for anything special and I came across a website that sells cutting boards, butcher blocks, and cheese boards.. Now dont get me wrong I have bought cutting boards in the past from Walmart, but when I saw this picticular one I thought that this has got to be the perfect gift for my wife.. This was a 22" X 13" X 3 inches thick made from Vermont Maple and Walnut and for it to be very special they will put peices of dark colored wood (Walnut I guess) while they make your butcher block with the letter of your choice so it is monogrammed, I wanted the letter "K" for my wifes first name.. Now my wife does all the cooking and the cutting boards we had purchased in the past from Walmart were very light and my wife would complain about when she cut something on it, it always moves all over the place.. With this new one it weighs 22 pounds and she absolutely loves this and she said it just saves her the frustration of cutting food up when it comes to cooking and she looks forward to using her new butcher block.. The web address is: www.smallboutique.com . I am new to posting in discussion boards so I hope my story is ok..
