The Preston and The Kelly

Re-introducing the Preston, with a twist!  Small routed notches to make this larger cutting board easier to pick up.  Radius corners as before and routed drip edge, just on one side.
 Shown in reclaimed white oak, quite the character in these!
Until I see the Maple-Walnut Preston, the all walnut is my favorite!
Now, introducing the Kelly, shown in rustic cherry, I LOVE it!
Same size as the Preston, 16" x 22" x 1 1/8" with the routed details and a pond.  Made for our friend Kelly.
The Preston & The Kelly Cutting Boards
are made to order,
$100 Each + Shipping.

Update, our Kelly is 7 weeks old, 5/5/14, look at the depth of color, I love it.

Hello Google+

Google+ is making a difference. Yeah!

We began the cutting board / side project in October 2013.  Seeing this result, we should have promoted more on Google+ right away. Learning as we go!
Adding the Google+ business page should also help.

Where's the Wine?

Congratulations to Windsor Wine and Spirits for the great turnout at their 1st Beer Tasting! 

In-case you missed it, please join us for a quick recap. Windsor Wine and Spirits is located in the Windsor House in Historic Windsor, Vermont.
Looks like we are in the right place!
Jason Collier from the Craft Beer Guild was our guide in tasting four great new beers.

The first was Mystic Table Beer and it was very nice, light.
Beer Advocate gives this an "86" and describes it as a great table beer, light easy drinking with lots of flavor.

Kentucky Bourbon was next.
We both really liked this one.
Beer Advocate gave an "85" and describes it as smooth, rich, complex and well balanced.

3rd was Imperial Triple IPA and was not for me. But, it was interesting and offers flavors of mango and passion-fruit. Beer Advocate rates "92".

On to the final offering,
Crabbie's Ginger Beer is the UK's best selling ginger beer and is now available in the US. Huffington Post Review recommends serving over ice with a slice of lemon or lime, which we will absolutely try!

This option sold out fast, luckily Rice was taking orders. I'm thinking many orders were placed as the choices sold out!

We did leave with the Kentucky Bourbon, and a recommended beer from the cooler. 

Thank you Rice for another fun experience, more beer tasting in the future, perhaps?
