All my products are made to order. If you are needing your board by a specific time, please contact me so i can prioritize your order if needed!

I specialize in the most incredible Cutting Boards in all the land! Let's face the facts here: you like stuff. I also like stuff. I put stuff on cutting boards, really well. It just makes sense. Wait, I also make signs? and Doormats? and Coasters? and MORE?? GTFO

What makes Cutting Boredom so awesome?
I don't get wholesale boards that are made in asia, laser them here, and call them a "USA made product". All my boards, I make right here in the good 'ol US of A, using real saws and actual glue. My wood thins are made from left over board scraps, so I create nearly 0 waste, and reclaim/recycle wood as much as possible into smaller products like bottle openers and coasters!

Heres a wacky idea too.. my images are actual images as well!! (wait, what?) I dont make mockups of what it "would" look like in photoshop. I take photos of real products, for you to look at with your real eyeballs! Hooray!

While I can do custom wedding, anniversary, graduation, bday, etc... my special focus is very complex and amusing inlays. The inlays are etched deep into the board, and sanded smooth to the touch. Using different wood species, I'm able to make durable and useful boards with high contrast, color, and a splash of personality. Every chump on etsy can do laser etch (and for some reason ALL choose to rip off each other's breaking bad memes and a lot of my designs?), so my goal is to turn this cutting board ship around and bring real quality to the table or counter or wherever it is you chop stuff.

Please like, share, and enjoy my products! Email me for custom inquiries! Together, we can make your kitchen & home not suck!

About CuttingBoredom

On Etsy since 2014

This is the home and originator or the most insane novelty cutting boards in all the land.

I am a designer. I went to school for it. I worked in the industry. And now i am a serial entrepreneur (even though i really dont like the term "entrepreneur" for some reason). One day, the Zombie cutting board popped into my head. A few illustrations and some shop time later, i had a kickstarter campaign funding over 700% goal. My boards were featured in gizmodo, dude i want that, nerd approved, and a ton of other blogs. How cool?? But why stop there?

I began looking at the cutting board as a blank canvas for an often time overlooked area of the kitchen. Sure, people do really nice end grain blocks, a few do laser etched boards with wedding stuff or the exact same breaking bad meme rip offs (seriously, why does EVERYONE do the same damn thing??)... but I strive to take it farther, and provide to you a quality board with the highest possible quality inlays, laser etch, and specialty materials! My boards are designed to fit a variety of styles, needs, and tastes, but the theme is generally the same... Make cutting boards KICK ASS! I aim to add some whimsy and fun to the room you should be in at least 3 times a day, and do it better than anyone else out there.

I do wedding, birthday, anniversary, graduation and custom work as well, if you have something in mind, please run it by me!

I can honestly say, my boards are 100% made in the USA. Where most people on etsy purchase their lovely wholesale bamboo boards in from distributors or overseas, and then call them "made in the USA" because they are laser etched here... I actually purchase lumber and cut/glue/sand/etch/inlay/sand/finish sand/seal them right here in San Diego. My hands touch every square inch of them, and the scrap recycles into smaller projects and wood thins. You will not receive foreign made product from me. I dont do photoshop mockups in my images either. Everything shown is 100% real products, and i wont display them until it has become a real product.

I now have branched out into Doormats, Coasters, Kitchen Towels, Signs, and so much more!

Welcome to the home of the most insanely awesome cutting boards on the planet! These are handcrafted from start to finish by myself in the USA. My Inlay sheets are also handmade and are not a cheap veneer!

It's my goal to revolutionize the possibilities of something as simple as a cutting board, and to find another way to bring a high quality, yet playful and distinct touch to your home.

I can do custom work, and offer options for wedding/anniversary/gift. Please contact me with custom inquiries.

But please contact me if you have any problems with your order.
The following items can't be returned or exchanged
Because of the nature of these items, unless they arrive damaged or defective, I can't accept returns for:
  • Custom or personalized orders
  • Perishable products (like food or flowers)
  • Digital downloads
  • Intimate items (for health/hygiene reasons)
Returns and exchange details
Natural products like wood will have variations in color, pattern, and shape. I work around this as much as possible. This is also a product that may be a showpiece for most people, but is intended for use. Most of my work is completely custom, I cannot guarantee it for life, but am happy to offer a 30 day return or exchange for any defects in workmanship, and advise heavily that you provide proper care with mineral oil to keep your board in great shape.
Shipping
All shipping is done asap, and all boards (unless otherwise noted) are made to order, with an estimate of approximately 2-3 weeks. These are handcrafted individually, so workload will determine completion time.

I usually ship priority mail to the US. I try and find the cheapest shipping rate possible, but due to the heavy weight of these boards, parcel select is often more expensive than priority flat rate options. I wish I could make shipping less expensive, but it is what it is. The bright side is, with priority mail you do get tracking and shipping is usually very fast!

For western USA buyers, please message me to calculate shipping if you are buying multiple boards or an 11x14" or larger size board. Often times I can get a less expensive shipping rate for the western US states. I will create a custom listing for you if this is possible!

If you have been delivered an incorrect product, I will replace it at my cost, including return shipping. I will also assume cost for replacement of defective boards (VERY rare).

If your board was not delivered due to being provided an incorrect address, I cannot be responsible for this. Buyer must assume cost of re-shipping. Please contact me immediately for products that experience damage during shipping. This has been a rare occurance, but I would like to attempt to reclaim shipping insurance for these cases.

DISCLAIMER: For international packages, SOMETIMES they are held for customs, which may cause shipping delays. It is also a possibility that your board will be imposed duty, VAT, or import fees separate from shipping. Etsy advises that the seller (cutting boredom) not be responsible for these fees because they are not imposed on every package. If you are non- US, please check on the possible costs involved with this and be prepared if you get notice that your package is being held for those reasons.

Please feel welcome to contact me with any questions! As much as I've experienced, there are always new challenges and it benefits me to be aware of any issues encountered. I actively strive to provide the best possible customer service, and being armed with the knowledge of past orders helps me with future customers!
