Custom Cutting Boards are indispensable in kitchens today. They can be mobile or in a permanent location that is easy to access.
Custom Cutting Boards | Construction Styles
Cutting boards can be crafted in Edge Grain Construction or End Grain Construction.
Below is a Peruvian Walnut Edge Grain Cutting Board designed by Griffey Remodeling. This cutting board was placed strategically close to the stove top and the sink, making it easy to access for food preparation purposes.This cutting board is 5 inches thick and includes a 1/8″ Roundover Edge Profile on Top, Bottom and Vertical corners of all edges.
We highly recommend choosing a cutting board crafted in end grain construction. End grain is generally ten times harder than edge grain. End grain is ideal for applications where looks and functionality are important. Knives keep their edge far better when used on end grain cutting boards because the blade slides between the wood fibers much like cutting into a firm brush. An added benefit is that end grain does not show knife marks quite as readily as edge grain.
Pictured below is a custom Random Mix Sapele Mahogany End Grain Cutting Board designed by Past Basket Design. The cutting board is 7 1/4 inches thick with a 1/8″ Roundover Edge Profile on top horizontal edge, bottom horizontal edge, and vertical corners.
Custom Cutting Boards | Features and Options
Cutting boards are not limited to features and options. A cutting board can include any of our edge profiles.
Cutting boards can also include laser engraving. This feature allows you to truly customize your designs. Many clients have used Laser Engraved Cutting Boards as gifts. Anything can be engraved – from images to logos, even designs. The possibilities are endless. Below is a cutting board Fisher Group designed with the company logo in the upper left hand corner and ‘Habitable Art’ in the lower right hand corner.
Cutting boards can also include a waste or trash hole. The food scraps are quickly swiped into the hole for efficient food preparation. The holes can be crafted with a custom lid if desired. Grothouse offers custom made steel lids as pictured or flush mount lids with flip up handles. We can also craft a lid of wood if you desire. The size and shape of the hole can vary based on your intended use. This element of customization can add a decorative flair to your well-organized work space.
