Craftsmanship

Our unique deep carving method for creating engraved personalized cutting boards offers deep-relief images that are far more substantial and permanent than conventional laser engraving or surface etching seen on your average engraved cutting board. As you hold one of our engraved cutting boards you can feel the depth and detail of the carved monogram or logo as well as the solid quality of our one inch thick boards, far surpassing the feel of conventional cutting boards that are ¾ of an inch or less in thickness. Our hand-crafted, custom engraved personalized cutting boards feature clarity and depth beyond traditional etching and engraving, with a solid feel meant to be cherished as a lasting keepsake.

Our Process

A cutting board is a deceptively simple kitchen utensil. At first glance, it may seem like simply a few strips of wood that are glued together and sanded. A lot of what we see in the market today is just that - boards made with manufacturing processes and materials that prioritize cost-efficiency over quality. As a result, many of the boards on offer today are designed to look good when you purchase them but use inherently flawed manufacturing techniques and materials that will make them more prone to warping or splitting over time.
We take a different approach. Our hardwood cutting boards begin as kiln dried lumber that is selected for a visually appealing and beautifully finished product. These select pieces of premium hardwood are graded and milled, and individual pieces are then assembled using quality construction techniques and carefully glued using FDA approved waterproof glue. In addition, our hardwood cutting boards are

produced with the more durable edge grain side up, resulting in a more structurally sound and longer-lasting cutting board. Boards that are made with the face grain side up are cheaper to produce, thus more common in the marketplace, but will not last as long, have a tendency to warp, and may dull your knives faster. Boards made with the end grain side up have a much higher tendency to absorb fluids and are therefore more prone to splitting, cracking or warping due to uneven swelling of the wood. Even a small detail such as the direction of the grain of the wood can make a difference in the durability and longevity of the cutting board, yet it is often a detail overlooked by many manufacturers and likely an unknown detail to the average consumer.
Once we are satisfied with the quality of the board, it is sent to be personalized and engraved. To properly protect the engraved board, several coats of high-quality FDA approved pure food grade cutting board oil are applied (which is colorless, odorless, tasteless) to penetrate into the wood and provide a durable, natural finish. Once completed, each cutting board exemplifies the beauty of its natural materials, carefully crafted to elegantly fit the needs of everyday living and to provide years of utility and enjoyment when properly cared for.
