Hello everyone and thanks for having me here at Kitchen Knife Forums!
I have already seen some familiar faces (names) here that I recognize from Instagram (@BorkWoodNC). I can already tell this is going to hurt my wallet a little more than just the vendor fees looking at all the beautiful knives around here!
My name is Matt and I am a woodworker located on the coast of North Carolina in Wilmington. I enjoy all types of woodworking but here will focus on sharing (and hopefully selling) some of my butcher blocks, charcuterie boards, serving trays, and knife racks.
I enjoy working with many types of wood including reclaimed domestic hardwoods and sustain-ably harvested exotic species. I can already see from some of the incredible knife handles that most of you have a decent knowledge of the wide variety of wood types available around the world.
I have a few items on my website but am working to change how that operates and just post one-of-a-kind items as they become available. Most of my work is custom, made-to-order based on the customers’ needs and wants. I will do a separate post showing a sample of my completed projects so you can all see my style and range of options. You will see that I enjoy sharing the process of building these unique pieces.
I look forward to connecting with you and participating on the forums, thanks for having me!
