Eaethquake Recycled rimu cutting boards

I bought a cutting board a couple of years ago from Paper plus I think made from recycled rimu from Kerrs Reach Rowing club. Does anyone know where I can buy another one?

Peter Timbs Edgware road had nice thick ones for sale for $65. Don't know if he still has them or not.

Thanks all, will phone around tomorrow

whitcoulls had them. They just are marked something along the lines of chch eq board or something. They don't seem to have where the timber cam from on it.

Would people pay the same price for one if it wasn't wood from a building bowled during, or after the eq's? They seem on the high side, price wise, to me. $65 and $90, ow

Crikey! for $65-90 I could make a whole lot of chopping boards out of some recycled rimu! My Rimu is not from a demolished house in the earthquake though.

French Bakery ones were slightly cheaper than other places.

French Bakery ones were slightly cheaper than other places.

I think the original ones were marked as being from Kerrs Reach but later ones are general Chch Earthquake and date.
