Searching for a Chopping Block

I live in Sacramento, and have been searching for a chopping block/cutting board that is made from a cross section of a tree. I thought Chinatown might have a store that carry them, but I'm not that familiar with San Francisco. Thank you. I apologize if I'm not on the right board.

  1. I saw one last year at Forest Restaurant Supply in SF (2010 Army, near Evans). It was surprisingly cheap.

        I don't remember but it seemed impossibly cheap. Maybe $40?

    1. I believe this is exactly what you are looking for. Indeed, I got mine iin Chinatown, but that was years ago. This is what the people in the BBQ shops use to chop up their roast duck, pig, chicken, and spare ribs.

      1. If you live in Sacramento have you tried any of the Chinese grocery stores in Sac?

          +1. Shun Fat Supermaket (65th and Stockton) has an impressive collection of kitchen stuff. If you end up looking in SF Chinatown, The Wok Shop on Grant might be your best bet.

        2. This is the place you want for such things:

          If memory serves, the chopping blocks are downstairs.

            Ginn Wall is definitely the best place to go.

          2. Kamei on Clement in the Richmond District has what you are looking for - along with a whole bunch of other great stuff!
