It has been my # 1 request at craft fairs. Honest. People have been clamoring – clamoring! – for me to make cutting boards in the shape of a pig.
I hate pigs.
I was in the pig business for about a minute, and did not find it to my liking. Here’s photographic proof that my sister and I were in the pig business … and got paid when we sold our stock at the St Joseph, MO stockyards. High living.
So, I’ve been out of the pig business for … 50 years (OMG) until I finally caved. Until the clamor.
Part of the clamor came from Jan, a good friend of ours that makes blankets, kitchen towels & such for sale at many of the same craft fairs that Mrs M’s Handmade has been visiting. Jan had an uncle, and he made it a tradition to present a pig cutting board to each young member of the family when they got married.
The problem was that Jan was the youngest, and the tradition ended before she married her husband … so she never got her pig cutting board.
Since I bowed to the inevitable, I’ve heard similar stories from many people, and I’ve shipped pig cutting boards across the country to sisters, cousins & friends that had to have them.
Pig cutting boards are intended for 2-sided use. All have the curly-Q tail, of course. The boards are 12″ x 20″ x 1-1/4″. Costs are $80 – $100, depending on wood selection.
