Hey guys! I wanted to share this easy DIY cutting board post with you!
I happened to have extra butcher block left over from my cabinet install that I did last week. It was obvious that I could make some pretty tyte cutting boards with the scraps and I quickly went to town. After making my first cutting board, I thought, this could be a really easy holiday gift for any of you out there, to make for all your buds. I'm making a few for mine, but shhh, don't tell 'em. Anyway, I thought I'd share with you my technique for this really easy project.
The cutting board turned out really nice, and adds a lot of natural texture to my kitchen. I've been using it all the time, and now I have a dedicated chopping area. The awesome thing is, it only took me half an hour to construct, and it looks super nice, I might even dare to say... store bought.
Like I said, I had extra butcher block laying around, but if you don't just happen to be in the midst of a kitchen reno project, you could easily pick some up at Ikea. I did the math, and if you were to chop down a standard Ikea butcher block countertop you'd have yourself at least 5 footed cutting boards, for less than a $100 buckaroos. That's $20 a board you guys, and the best part is, you made it yourself.
