A very good friend made a new cutting board for me. End grain Rock Maple and Purple Heart out of S. America. He made it perfectly to the specified size to fit the serving trays I use to catch any crumbs or run off. It is absolutely a piece of art. So much so that I didn't even want to use it. Thought I'd try it out tonight on venison burgers, which were delicious. The pic below that is of my two newly acquired kitchen prep knives. A Henckels and a Wusthof. Both are fantastic and I highly recommend. Life is good! (At least for the moment).
