Excerpt: "Husband-and-wife team Ryan Silverman and Eileen O'Dea — a woodworker and a chef turned woodworker, respectively — create heirloom-quality, handmade cutting boards in Los Angeles. Each requires 150 to 750 wood pieces. The Eileen is a thick rectangle with 2.5-inch legs, which can be purchased separately or as a set with a smaller round board. It's made for daily use and won't show most knife marks because of its end-grain construction. Available in black walnut and fumed oak. $650 (rectangle), $350 (round) at TheWoodenPalate.com."
