I make cutting boards from the smallest cheese board up to 24”X24”X3”. They can be flat sawn, edge grain, end grain, or natural. All my boards are finished with a mix of Mineral Oil or Walnut Oil and Beeswax that I make here at ShopDog. They can be made with or without feet, with or without grooves, and with or without custom engraving.
Pricing: Cutting Boards are generally priced by the Board Foot (BF), where one board foot is 12” X 12” X 1” (144 cubic inches). In increasing order of complexity the boards are
Natural boards (one single board, finished for use) are priced at $0.20/BF.
Flat grain boards are priced starting at $0.25/BF.
Edge grain boards are priced starting at $0.30/BF.
End grain boards are priced starting at $0.375/BF.
Specialty boards, engraved boards, boards with several types of wood, and patterned boards require quite a bit more effort and generally start at $45/BF.
Cheese boards are in a separate category as the amount of wood is sharply reduced, but the amount of labor is not. Thus they are priced by the square inch at $0.475/sq in.
This is a guideline - we will work out the price of your specific board as we mover forward in the process of designing and making it.
As a logical offshoot of cutting boards, I also make coasters in various woods.
