I’m nearly ready to release the new cheese / charcuterie boards! I’m completely in love with them and I’ve been testing some new, very swoon-inducing designs. This fabulous tessellation is available on my cutting boards and chopping blocks :)

Wood Be Mine

Wood Be Mine is a handmade, home-based business specialized in a variety of custom engraved, sustainable, and hand crafted cutting boards, coasters, and personalized gifts for you and yours ♡ Thanks for stopping by!

Hi there! My name is Lea and I launched Wood Be Mine in 2015 from my in-home studio in the Willamette Valley near Portland, Oregon. I am a graphic designer, illustrator, woodworker, and a lover of natural and sustainable materials!

I have established relationships with several USA based woodworkers who use bamboo, (so versatile!) olive wood, (oh so beautiful!) and acacia (swoon!) in their furniture and construction work. The "left over" materials from these larger projects are sent to me where in my studio they are repurposed, sanded, polished, and made into beautiful gifts.

With a background in illustration and graphic design, I love creating and engraving unique pieces. I have a commitment to unique, lasting and quality items while respecting a strong code of sustainability and eco friendly practices. Let me know how I can help you make the perfect gift!

══════════════════════════════════════════════
Why my cutting boards are a cut above:
Before opening Wood Be Mine, I took a close look at the what other shops had to offer (and even ordered a good share of cutting boards!) so I could be sure to go above and beyond. My bamboo cutting boards are each-and-every-one hand crafted, with sustainable and/or reclaimed material, with attention to quality, beauty, and detail. They are substantial, solid pieces intended to be meaningful gifts and special heirlooms. Additionally, with professional experience in digital media and illustration, I'm confident that few out there can do your custom design as tastefully, skillfully (or as cheerfully!) as I can. Last but not least, everything I do is made with sustainable growth materials and a commitment to green practices. That's a cut above!
══════════════════════════════════════════════

From Roots to Blocks:
The roots of what would become Wood Be Mine began 5 years ago, when I spontaneously left my home in Hawaii to spend several weeks alone in France. What was supposed to be three weeks rather suddenly became three years - I fell in love, went to graduate school, learned a love for crafting and handmade items, and married a handsome winemaker. Now, the two of us have settled in Oregon's wine country where we spend our days sipping, engraving, and feeling grateful.

What I love most about Wood Be Mine is creating new and inspired designs that are completely unique to you and your style. Please feel free to reach out to me with custom design ideas or requests, - that's what Wood Be Mine is all about! I can't wait to help you find the perfect gift for you and yours :)

Welcome! Wood Be Mine specializes in custom engraved, eco-friendly and unique gifts for you and yours. Thank you for stopping by!

► All my materials and packaging are sustainable growth, recyclable, and/or compostable!

► My high resolution, industrial grade laser engraver ensures precision engraving to get your details just right!

► I'm more than happy to help you design a truly unique piece. Please don't hesitate to contact me with your thoughts!

► Mindful maintenance is key when you have a wooden butcher block, cutting board, or serving board. Improper storage, drastic changes in humidity, or an overnight soak in even the smallest of puddles can leave you with a board that’s warped, cracked, or otherwise damaged. Please be sure to store your products in cool, dry places, to wipe clean after every use, and treat your cutting board with mineral oil or butcher block conditioner as needed.

Please note however that the link may be inactive during high season!

► Do you do custom designs?

I do! Please email me with your thoughts. If you provide the artwork, (ie: a logo, wedding invite, or hand written-recipe,) there is no additional design charge and pricing for the cutting board is based on engraving size. If you would like me to design something for you, a $6.00 - $10.00 design fee applies. This includes as many mock-ups as necessary to get it just right!

► Can I change / move / omit text on a design?

Absolutely! All of the text in any one of my designs in completely customizable. Since all of the artwork is made by me personally, designs can be very flexible. All I ask is that you consider space limitations and choose words/phrases that are similar in length to the sample designs. Please be sure to leave all of your personalization info in the "add a note to Wood Be Mine" comment box during checkout :)

Why is shipping to my address so expensive?

My cutting boards are very thick and quite heavy, (approx. 7 pounds!) so actual shipping costs usually range between $10 and $21.00 for domestic shipments and as high as $60.00 for international! While I've considered selling lighter boards to reduce shipping costs, it's the hefty, solid, end-grain style of my larger chopping blocks that make them one of a kind!

Etsy automatically calculates shipping with USPS but, if you're concerned with costs, feel free to send me your shipping postal code in a message and I'll get some quotes for you from UPS and Fedex that might be a bit better!

Do you ship internationally?

I do! Keep in mind however that because the boards are quite heavy (approx. 7 pounds,) International shipping can be pricey: typically ranging from $50 to $70. This does not include any duties or customs fees that may apply.

Do you offer quantity discounts?

I do! Please contact me to discuss larger orders and options for combined shipping. Due to limited production capacity however, (I'm only me!) my maximum order quantities are below:

Cutting boards: Limited to 5 pieces to one order
Coasters: Limited to 10 sets of 4 (or 40 individual pieces)
Spoons / Spatulas: 5 sets or 10 individual pieces
