Vermont Butcher Block

Happy Valentine’s Day to all!!  It’s been teasingly spring-like and warm these past few days, but I’ve been in Vermont for about 5 or 6 years now, and I know that it’s just a tease.  The real winter is about to happen.  Last night it was 40’s and raining, this morning there’s an inch of snow on top of an inch of solid ice on our driveway.  I’ve actually called our plow service to come salt the driveway and parking lot because of the ice.

This month has been good for us, we sold a lazy susan to cooking legend Ming Tsai. ( )  I was able to personally deliver the piece to him in Wellesley, MA and see his beautiful restaurant. ( )   In addition, our piece will be in an upcoming magazine along side Ming.

We’ve come out with a new line of trivets, one company has already ordered them with their logo emblazoned or engraved in to the slate tile.  Most trivets are cheap and flimsy, we’ve decided to make ours beautiful and heirloom-like.  They are solid 1.25” Cherry (walnut to come shortly) with a Vermont or NY State piece of slate adhered in the middle.  These trivets are great to protect any surface from a hot dish.

We’re doing a wholesale show in Maine in March, if you’re a buyer, please feel free to stop by and spend some cash! (ok, even if you aren’t a buyer, please feel free to stop by and say hi.)

I think that’s it, here’s hoping our daffodils will pop up sometime in the next 6 months.  At least we aren’t living in Alaska these days.
