Tutorial: DIY Butcher Block Cutting Board Project

Create your own cutting board in these easy steps!

What better way can you ensure that your gear will be able to endure time and regular usage?

  • By building it with your own hands and personalizing your Butcher Block Cutting Board, size nor durability will no longer be an issue.
  • Choose the type of wood that is safe from harmful treating chemicals, smoothen them out, and then  put together to form your cutting board.
  • Shape it into an oval or square, whichever is to your liking!

Laminate them together by applying wood glue. Rotate them into gluing position and move strips into place. Once in place, use clamps to apply steady pressure to the board. Allow it to dry for an hour.


5. Planer and Sand

Run the cutting board through the planer to even out the strips. Use miter/table saw to even out the two ends of the board. Run an orbital sander over the surfaces of the cutting board.

Tip! The planer is optional. You can sand the cutting board to even out the wood. 

6. Finishing

Apply food safe finish.


7. Rubber Pads

Add rubber pads to the bottom if you want to prevent it moving around in the counter. And voila! You just made yourself a very nice and tidy butcher cutting board!
