Wood Size Availability

We can make a pig as big as the size of the wood available.

We have pre-determined sizes for our pigs and you can find them at our store. The Jumbo Poppas, for example, come in different fixed sizes, also available at our shop. Although, if you have a special requirement and need something bigger, we can consider special orders, according to the availability of the wood.

One thing to keep in mind is that our pigs are handmade and therefore the sizes/thickness are not so precise but approximate. For example, the 4 options of sizes for the Jumbo Poppas at our shop are 11” to 12” ; 12”to 13” ; 13” to 14”and 14”to 15”. All other pigs from the shop are more approximate to the dimensions given than the Jumbo Poppas. As mentioned earlier, the pigs are handmade but also the main reason for this discrepancy is the size of the wood available. We try to cut these pigs with as much less waste as possible.

BRIEF HISTORY

  • Post author:

The Original Pig Cutting Board Family since 1981.
While living on Toland Farm in Wynnewood PA, I started making these hard maple pig cutting boards for friends and family. The first pigs came from a large sugar maple tree I cut down on the McFarland estate in Wynnewood just before the property was developed.

Now over 30 years later we are a husband-wife team making these same pigs. I hand select every piece of lumber that goes into making these pigs from the finest hardwood available. Each pig is hand cut, hand sanded and hand filed. Then, A coat or more of food-grade mineral oil is applied by hand. All our pigs are made with love and care. One by one.
