More inventory is coming!

We were very busy through the holidays, most of our inventory sold out especially cherry and walnut. Also, I made walnut kitchen shelves and a beautiful walnut end grain countertop for a nice family here in Naperville (pictures are coming). Slowly but surely though, I am replenishing our inventory. I have more maple and cherry 12 x 18 x 1 3/4 boards that need finishing and this coming week I hope to have a couple of 12 x 18 x 1 3/4 walnut boards available. And then in a couple of weeks, I should have 10 x 14 x 1 3/4 in all species replenished.


I’ve been asked about our warranty a couple of times lately. So, here’s our “official” warranty:

The only warranty, expressed or implied, is a one-year guarantee against defects in workmanship and material.

This warranty does not apply to damages which may result from neglect, accidental or intentional damage, normal wear and tear, misuse of product, unauthorized repair, exposure to extremes in temperature and humidity, and alteration or abuse of the product.

Repairs or replacement under this limited warranty will be made through Two Rivers Butcher Block, Should we find return of the product to us necessary, all packing and shipping costs will be the responsibility of the customer. Contact us at [email protected] for more information.

Our obligation under this warranty, is limited, at the option of Two Rivers Butcher Block to repair or replacement of the product (or one of equal type and quality if the product is no longer available), within 90 days after receipt of defective product provided none of the above exceptions are evident. Two Rivers Butcher Block shall not be liable for any loss or damage arising from use, or for consequential damages. This warranty gives certain legal rights and there may be other rights that vary from state to state.

That’s the official warranty. In truth, I want my customers to be 100% happy and will do everything in my power to make that so. Happy customers are my business.

Thank you to all!

Most of our inventory has sold out, but I am still building for the holidays. Space in my build schedule is limited for holiday delivery. Contact us at [email protected] to inquire about ordering. I will do my very best to fill all orders.

Another gift idea, soy candles. Two Rivers Candle Company candles to be specific. We are working on a website, those of you who have visited us at farmers markets have experienced these wonderful candles that my wife creates. You can contact us at the email above or at [email protected] for a list of fragrances.

The original line is 100% Soy wax

The premium line is Soy, Coconut, Palm, and Beeswax blend

Both lines use fragrance and/or essential oil scents.

This is a few of our fall line up from our original line.

This is one of our premium scents in our new Premium pot.



Some new boards

These boards are available. Just contact us at [email protected]

None of these are regulars on our site but are always available at the Farmers Markets or by contacting us.

This is a lovely 11″ round x 1.75″ (TRBB) Two Rivers Butcher Block Red (Padauk)

These next two are TRBB Maple and Cherry 12 x 18 x 1.75 both with handles.

This is a 12 x 18 x 1.75 TRBB Maple and Walnut with handles.

This is a 12 x 18 x 1.75 TRBB Red with handles.

And last but certainly not least for today is this 12″ round x 1.75″ thich Maple board. These 1.75″ thick boards came about when one day I had some extra wood and glued one up. I brought it to the Farmers Market and it got a lot of interest before a lady purchased it. I’ve made a lot more in maple, cherry, walnut, maple and cherry, maple and walnut, cherry and walnut and TRBB varities and they are in higher demand than the 2.25″ thickness round boards. So, here is one:

Was trying to come up with a catchy title for this post…….

But I gave up. How about a picture in stead-

That is a lovely maple and cherry with finger grooves 12 x 18 x 1 3/4 end grain butcher block cutting board. I have several available that I will be finishing this weekend. (I’m typing this on an iPad and have yet to figure how to enlarge the picture.) I’ll put up another post later with some larger pictures and some nice boards.

We were supposed to have attended the One Of A Kind show at the Merchandise Mart last weekend but it was cancelled due to the ongoing pandemic. This pandemic is also putting a hurting on farmers markets this year. From what I’ve learned, farmers markets are changing this year from social gathering events to in and out events. That means that at least at the beginning of the season the markets are going to expect you to get there, alone, no family or friends with you, point to what you want at your favorite farmers booth pay, no cash please, move on and head home. All you’ll be able to find are vegetable and fruit growers with some other food sellers. As the season draws on the market managers will have the ability to have other vendors to the markets but, no handling of the merchandise thank you. Strictly hands off, look, point, buy. Ugh.

Let’s hope this pandemic quickly goes away and things get back to normal.

It doesn’t seem as though we’ll be at any farmers markets for a bit due to the new rules so I am going to put another section up on the website where we’ll offer up these types of boards that I’ve offered exclusively at shows and markets. Have patience, I have some really good pictures by a really good photographer but the guy doing the web page should probably be using paper and crayons. (Me).
