Design your own custom and personalized cutting board in 5 easy steps

There are so many kinds of cutting boards out there and to be honest, what you see is only a small slice of what's possible! The only limit is your creativity. It's time for you to bring your ideas and we can create something together!

To help you out with the process, here is what you should know before ordering your cutting board.

Follow me! :)


But first! Why have you already made the best choice?

Cutting boards come in a wide variety of material (wood, plastic, glass, etc...).
Here is why wooden boards are the best choice:

  • They will last forever as wood has the ability to be invigorated and refinished.
  • Wood has the property to eliminate bacteria faster than plastic. Here is a study made by the College of Agricultural and Life Sciences, USA (In case you need something to help you sleep at night!)
  • Wood is the best for your knives as it allows them to stay sharp for longer. No wonder every chef uses a wooden cutting board!

What is your budget?

Budget can be a big part of the decision making process.
So what wood... oops I mean ''would'' make a board more or less expensive?

Wood species
(Price of material)

Depending on the species of wood you choose to make your project, it's easy to multiply the price 10 times when asking for an expensive one.

Look at the price sign of the wood that you like.
$ = Low-cost option
$$$$$ = Open your wallet!

Size
(Quantity of wood)

The bigger the cutting board is, the more wood is needed.

Also, the way it's made; an end grain board takes a lot more wood than a face grain board of the same size.

Placeholder Image

Complexity
(Time of fabrication) 

The complexity of the pattern increases considerably the time of fabrication.

Extras such as grooved handles, juice grooves and engravings are factors that add to the complexity.

Also, there are more steps in making an end grain cutting board compared to a face grain.

You want it personalized?
