    Gowanus Cutting Boards

    This Gowanus Furniture Co cutting board looks interesting. It has a plastic fleximat pull-out board to transfer your cut veggies.

    Who knows, there might be some drawbacks to this design, but I applaud the idea. I think it would be nice to build in a slot for a bench scraper.

    Every time you rout out a slot, you introduce a weakness to otherwise uniformly solid block. Dave will probably be a better source for it, but on board, I use my hand or a surface of my knife to scoop cut stuff.

    yeah, on second thought I kind of figured that too. Dumb idea, my bad. And another avenue for moisture to enter and oil to leak about too.

    Though I must say that I like the bike holder.

    Some interesting ideas there.

    David did make a design at one time with a small pull out cutting tray that mounted under the main board. The pull out "tray" was also wood.



    From what he told me he dropped the design due to lack of interest.






    Also, if you have trouble scooping your food from the board to the stove, try using a cleaver!

    Gowanus is a horrible name! Any New Yorker will agree, the Gowanus Canal in Brooklyn is a cesspit, a cousin to Love Canal, and ought to be Super Fund cleaned! No cutting board for you!~

    I have the board that Sean showed above in mahagony. As usual with Dave's boards it's a beauty, only problem is when I moved up here to the dry air of Colorado, the board underneath expanded (or the main board shrunk), and caused cracking in the wood. I suppose other peoples experiences may vary.

    Wait... I just realised that you also started this thread. How long were you waiting to lay that line on us?

    Muhahaa. It was all just an elaborate set up to say "cow anus." Finally, my plan has come together and the world shall live in darkness

    Once when I was working for the State Dept a consular officer from a ranching family was telling me about how he had a calf that was born without an a-hole. Without missing a beat I asked, "How did you rectify it." I guess I have a talent.
