Wood Elements

I love items that are both functional and beautiful.  At the Nat Bailey Farmer's Market today I came across the gorgeous craftsmanship of Alex Zapotichny.  Alex, who is a retired highschool woodworking teacher, designs and makes hardwood cutting boards.  He uses native hardwoods and accents the boards with exotic hardwoods.

Of course I couldn't resist and bought 2 boards:  one 12" round maple and a 7" square, both very reasonably priced at $25 and $8.50.  And there were several others that I liked and would look great in our new place!

The next time Alex will be selling his boards again will be at the Winter Market on Sunday, December 12 at the Heritage Hall on Main and 15th.
