Custom cutting boards from POEM make the perfect gifts
POEM Design offers a wide selection of cutting boards and chopping blocks, with designs created by in-house artisans and constructed with top-quality wood types. Whether you need wood-cutting boards for your home or looking for a perfect gift, we have elegant and custom designs. Our personalized cutting boards can be engraved with custom, personalized patterns and a family name, or choose from one of our unique designs.
Our custom cutting boards are available in a variety of sizes and three hardwood options—maple, cherrywood, and walnut. They’re also perfect for a variety of uses, including charcuterie, serving platters, butter boards, or even individual plates.
Do you have a bamboo cutting board?
Bamboo may be a popular choice for cutting boards, but it's not the best option. Bamboo is softer than other types of wood and can easily become scratched or gouged. This makes it difficult to keep clean and sanitary, as bacteria can accumulate in the scratches and crevices. Additionally, bamboo wood absorbs moisture more readily than other woods, which leads to warping over time. For these reasons, bamboo cutting boards are generally not recommended by professional chefs or food safety experts. Additionally, cutting board laser designs can cause splintering with such a loose wood grain pattern. Bamboo has many good uses and offers an important ecological advantage, but doesn't make for long-lasting cutting boards. Someday we may offer a bamboo cutting board, but for now, it isn't the right material.

The Perfect Present
Giving a cutting board as a gift is an excellent way to show someone special how much they mean to you. These cutting boards can be used as a cheese board, serving platter, or even just a sign in the kitchen. Larger boards work well as a cheese board, and small and medium boards can be used as serving boards. The smallest personalized cutting boards work as a great way to share a message in the kitchen and make it feel more like home. Personalized cutting boards make for an excellent gift for a variety of occasions:
- Wedding gift
- Anniversary gift
- Mother's day or Father's Day
What size of Personalized Cutting Boards is right for you?
Three different sizes are available: small (9"x12"x.75"), medium (11"x17"x.75"), and large (15"x20"x1.25"). Our largest, most popular customized cutting boards are big enough to serve as a charcuterie board, cheese platter, or serving tray. The larger two engraved cutting boards also include juice grooves. The small cutting board is an attractive option and great for smaller countertops in cabins, boats, and apartments.
Our custom cutting boards come in three types of wood.
The lightest option is maple, which works great in kitchens that feature light colors. Cherrywood is slighter and darker in color with light orange to red hue. The engraving shows up most notably with this type of wood. Walnut, our darkest wood, is our most popular choice. These high-quality materials mean that these heavy-duty custom cutting boards will last.
