John Loftis, owner of Lone Star Artisans, makes cutting boards. Purdy ones, too.

EAMON <> As the name implies, those are some artisan boards, for sure. I mean "purdy" is almost an understatement.

Yeah, they are. A lot of his boards have a "work side" and a "presentation side" for laying on the counter when not in use.

EAMON <> A work side & a presentation side is a great concept. Guess ya gotta get inventive when trying to protect that art.

Hi folks, A new customer brought this thread to my attention. I really appreciate the endorsement of my cutting boards. I'm a newbie when it comes to chef knives, having just acquired my first Carter knife (wow!). But I do know a thing or two about cutting boards and chopping blocks. On my website, I've got a pretty lengthy FAQ that some of you might find interesting. It gets into the some of the 'why' of my wood selection, grain orientation, construction, etc.

Also, I want to try an experiment, assuming it isn't a violation of the terms of use of this forum. I almost never have a 'sale,' or do promotions involving price, because that seems kind of gimmicky... But I'd like to give this a shot, both as a means of introducing you all to my company and as a 'thank you' for noticing my boards. On my website, I'm going to create a discount code for Chef Knives to Go forums members. The code is: 'CKTG' (no quotation marks). When you enter that in the 'customer code' box at checkout, I'll give you a 10% discount on your cutting board/chopping block purchase, even on custom orders, even if you order multiple boards.

As an addendum, I just got a big load of pretty spectacular walnut from western Pennsylvania. So if you are interested in a walnut cutting board, now is a good time. I also have plenty of hard maple and cherry (all domestic hardwoods), all made by yours truly in my little shop here in Texas.

Best,
John

Welcome, John, and thank you! Thank you for your generosity, but mostly - thank you for your art. :D Once I get back home - to my main kitchen, I may just take you up on that discount. ;)

I have to reiterate all of Drew's comments, really.

I've found somebody in Europe who makes great boards. I met him a e few weeks ago and have been testing his boards. I'll do a review soon. For us Europeans, it's hard to find well made cutting boards. Shipping from the US is insane.

Michiel, you are right. I shipped one of my cutting boards to Austria recently and I think the shipping was $56 U.S.

Hi John,

Call me some time. We should talk about a partnership of some sort.

Mark
