Handmade Wooden Cutting Boards

I was recently browsing pictures from our local farmer's market's opening day, and I noticed a table with handmade wooden cutting boards in the background. I am FASCINATED with them! I've always wanted to be able to make something so precise, so intricate...though if I did make myself one, I don't think I'd be able to use it because I'd be afraid of messing it up :) 

So, for today's post, I thought it would be fun to take a look at some handmade cutting boards on Etsy. Even if you don't want to purchase one for yourself, I think that they would really make a great wedding present or housewarming gift.

Made with maple and walnut, this adorable striped elephant is 14 inches by 12 inches, and 1 inch thick.



I just love how this oak cutting board is staged for the photo - it really makes you want to roll your sleeves up and start cooking. Cooking can be such a relaxing hobby if you don't take it too seriously!

I really love the handle and the variety of hardwood used in this cutting board!




When my sister-in-law got married, my husband and I purchased a personalized cutting board for her & her new husband. It was beautiful! Personalizing gifts is such a great way to add a little extra thought into the presents you buy.
