Engraved Chopping Boards
Make Me Something Special’s engraved chopping boards are one of those products that I could just talk for hours about. They are of such good quality, you won’t find anything that matches it on the market today.
These boards make ideal 5th anniversary gifts as they are hard-wearing enough to be treasured for a lifetime, and can be personalised with a special engraving. Whether you’re treating yourself or someone close to you, the chopping boards we produce here are absolutely beautiful and will make a fantastic addition to your kitchen.
It is very rare you find a craftsman that develops engraved chopping boards from scratch. They are normally mass-produced or started in another country to then be finished here in the UK.
Our engraved chopping boards are handmade from start to finish in the UK from only the finest hardwoods the world has to offer. Our timber comes from the Amish, a tiny selection of considerably well-managed saw mills found in the heart of the North Appalachian Region of New England.
We use four very beautiful timbers when creating our chopping boards. American White Oak, North American Black Rock Maple, North American Cherry and North American Black Walnut. These are renowned as the most highly prized timbers on the world and have a grain and density that is unlike any other rival species.
Once the timber has been cleaned and planed, it is hand selected to make sure that the grain and colour matches, which will make an almost invisible glue join, giving the impression that our engraved chopping boards are made from a single piece rather than several. This collection of glued sections (staves) is what gives a chopping board its strength and reduces movement.
You will notice that all of our kitchen boards are made from full length staves, meaning the pieces run the full length of the personalised chopping board. These boards are ideal for birthday gifts, anniversary gifts and wedding gifts.
Once this process is complete, we move onto the cutting of the handles and groove works and, of course, the engraving.
Our carving is both sharp and deep. We make sure every letter or channel is cut with precise accuracy, giving flawless results. Many many hours are spent smoothing and finishing, checking each board over with microscopic detail.
Next, we oil our engraved chopping boards until we have a perfect finish. We give each board, on average, 5 to 6 coats of oil and in some cases even ten coats, like our personalised carving boards and draining boards which are exposed to moisture for longer periods of time.
Every engraved chopping board is already well set up before it leaves our workshop ready to be used the second you unwrap it.
I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again; Make Me Something Special’s personalised chopping boards are simply stunning. These are unmistakably beautiful, durable and the most extremely hard-wearing luxury wooden personalised chopping boards money can buy. Tried, tested and owned by professional chefs around the world.
