This beautiful cutting board was given to me by S's teacher, as a thank you for my help this year. It was completely unnecessary, I gladly helped and felt lucky to be able to. Mrs. O saw me lusting after the donated board at the school auction, and knew I would like to have one of my own. She asked the parent who made it to make me one. Liz did a fabulous job, and I have it on my counter, where it is lovingly stroked and admired. I don't think I will ever be able to really cut on it. It's just too beautiful. Thank you Mrs. O and Liz!!! I will pass it down to S some day. If you feel the desire to have one of these boards, check out her company, Benson Wood Products.
