Gene, is that one of those embedded tempered-glass things you've got beside your sink
within the countertop? I sure hope not, because those things simply destroy knife edges.

Yes it is. It was installed there when I bought the place. Cutting boards save the day...and the knife edge but one of these days, I want to redo the countertop.

Here's a shot of my cutting board. It's a Proteak teakwood edge grain 20" x 15" x 1.5" board and has finger grips cut into the ends. I love its size and weight.

Very nice!

As a side discussion with the Mrs. I mentioned to her that I wish I'd kept mom's old wooden cutting board for the photo sets because it had "character". She responded back that she finds them repulsive from the standpoint that who would prepare food off of a well worn bacteria-dirty platform. "If the restaurant served your food on this, would you eat it?" Settled that thought. LOL  :p

Although it wouldn't be quite the same, cleaning and oiling an old board would still retain a lot of character I would think. Of course, use food grade mineral oil to keep your wooden cutting boards in top shape. Sanding an old board before oiling probably won't preserve that 'look' though I'm guessing. ;-)a

Plus, it's usually easier to sanitize the wood boards than the plastic. The grooves from the blades are generally deeper in plastic making it more difficult to remove bacteria.

I use wood boards and clean them often with lemon juice and very hot water. You could also wipe it down with bleach on a clean towel. The board I use most has been run through a planer, finish sanded and oiled a few times.

I've read that wood has antibacterial qualities. That doesn't mean you can get careless with raw poultry or anything. It just lets you relax a little about wooden cutting boards.

It's interesting to me that a discussion has grown about using wood cutting boards.

These have been used since almost before recorded time,
and we don't hear stories all the time about how 'germy' and 'unsafe' they are
with proper care & cleaning. After all, they're very common in many commercial
venues such as restaurants and bakeries, to this day.

As Gene mentions, a food-grade oil seals them quite well.
A Scotch-Brite or similarly mild abrasive used during cleaning
keeps surfaces smooth. As always, common-sense rinsing and washing
is the best practice.

Just about the only real concern, aside from proper care, would be the
toxicity of wood species used to make the cutting board, and those are
certainly not made available as manufactured goods.

Of course I'm all right! Why? What have you heard?!?

Since we're on the subject, here's a review of all types of cutting boards by "America's Test Kitchen" and the one they selected as the winner.

I have to say, I really love the way you watermark your images. very clever without being annoyingly obvious or distracting. Some are so subtle it becomes a game looking for them.
Just wanted to express my appreciation to your ingenuity.

Thanks. I enjoy the challenge of finding interesting ways to incorporate my name into my photographs. Other photographers have also 'made a game' of trying to find where I've placed it on any given photo. Sometimes my watermark is subtle and sometimes a bit 'in your face' and sometimes it's not there at all.
