Just make sure to use non-toxic wood and non-toxic finishes like Raw Linseed Oil or Carnauba Wax so that dangerous chemicals from other woods and finishes doesn’t contaminate the food that goes onto the cutting board. You can also opt to include an indent for the knife, so the chef can put the knife into the cutting board when the knife is not currently in use.
"Wow this homemade creamer is even easier than all the others I seen because this one the ingredients are just whipped together and put in container and refridgate. The vanilla is so soothing and adds just that secial touch to your creamer. Take some to the office and share. Your co-workers will be asking you which creamer is this. Very easy to do."
I know I’ve been a little MIA but we’ve had a big project in the backyard, an overwhelming workload (which we planned on being MUCH less), and then decided to hire out for some help to haul away a huge amount of dirt.  Unfortunately, that ended up with the guy we hired stealing from us…..uggggh.  When will we ever learn to not be so trusting?!  Steve and I both have a problem with that……but when did being “too trusting” become such an extreme character flaw?!!  Sad.  Anyway, the whole situation is under investigation and there are some definite twists to the story that the crime-show-watcher in me would love to share with any other crime-show-watching enthusiasts out there. ;) Hopefully soon.
Slice, dice and serve in style on this easy, attractive board. We’ll show you a simple way to dry-fit the parts, scribe the arc and then glue the whole thing together. We used a 4-ft. steel ruler to scribe the arcs, but a yardstick or any thin board would also work. Find complete how-to instructions on this woodworking crafts project here. Also, be sure to use water-resistant wood glue and keep your board out of the dishwasher or it might fall apart. And one more thing: Keep the boards as even as possible during glue-up to minimize sanding later. For great tips on gluing wood, check out this collection.

Working on one side at a time, glue and nail the side to the back. Apply glue and drive three 1-5/8-in. nails into each shelf, attach the other side and nail those shelves into place to secure them. Clamps are helpful to hold the unit together while you’re driving nails. Center the top piece, leaving a 2-in. overhang on both sides, and glue and nail it into place. Paint or stain the unit and then drill pilot holes into the top face of each side of the unit and screw in the hooks to hold your ironing board. Mount the shelf on drywall using screw-in wall anchors.

I just don't get it, guys. Aren't you a large company that ships tons of stuff? How can you mess so much stuff up? Basic process control - you ship lots of Blum slides, right? Haven't you figured out how to package them? And why don't you check the email address you post on the website? When someone leaves the company, why don't you set up an auto-reply so that people emailing her know they won't be getting an answer? And when a customer is angry because you've shorted an order, why don't you FedEx overnight a replacement RIGHT AWAY, rather than use some cut-rate discount shipper?

Thinking my orders were now correct, I went to install the slides, and found you had sent me an odd number of Left/Right Blum drawer clips (they are sold in pairs. I ordered pairs. You sent me 5 right and 3 left). I emailed Teresa, personally, and guess what? No reply. So I called, and someone told me Teresa had quit. This new person apologized and said she'd send me a Left clip the same day.
3.Rearrange the bookshelf. Reorganizing the bookshelf will easily make an entire room look more styled and polished, and you don't even have to get rid of anything.
