One thing I’ve learned is that what I think a cutting board should be is not always shared by other people with less active kitchens than we have. That’s OK. I’ve learned to make cutting boards in all sizes … and new shapes are coming, too!
I believe a cutting board should be large enough for the task at hand (and most kitchens will need at least two boards: one for the chef and one for the sous chef, their assistant).
These boards range from 8″ x 12″ x 7/8″ to 16″ x 24″ x 1-1/2″. If you don’t see the size you would like … please let me know!
Prices vary with the size of the board, the woods selected, and the complexity of the construction. As shown, these boards cost $60 – $300.
