Friday Firsts - Butcher Block Cutting Board

Friday Firsts

Happy Friday everybody!! Sooo sorry for the missing post last week. Johnny and I were meant to leave my parents' on Monday and then that didn't happen. It kept getting pushed back a day or two, until we just ended up staying the whole week and leaving Friday morning. It was probably somewhere around nightfall on Friday evening when we were making our way through the horrendous Pennsylvania Turnpike that I realized I'd forgotten to set it up the night before!

But we're home now and I've reluctantly returned to normal life. In fact, I'm even getting around to finally showing you my amazing CSN treat I alluded to way back in June. Whoops!

This week I was able to season and use my amazing butcher block cutting board for the first time! I absolutely love it and could not be more pleased with it!

It's a massive 18" x 18" working space and 3" tall. Made of hardwood and reversible, this baby weighs twenty three pounds!

Now it's your turn to tell me about your first! To participate in Friday Firsts create a blog post featuring a "first" of yours. Next, link that blog post below and tell us about it! If you don't have a blog or a specific post to link to please tell us about your first in the comment section! Any and all participation is welcome!

23 lbs!!?? Wow that is freaking cool. I guess it puts my bendable chopping "boards" to shame! ;-)

What a beautiful piece of kitchen gear - I've always wanted one of those. I didn't realise they were quite that heavy though - good thing I work out! Thanks for hosting Friday Firsts and have a great weekend!

I've never had one of these either! It looks great!! My kids would find a way to stick wheels on it and make a skateboard out of it probably!
