When they are made with love, I find them to be special. I was delighted to discover Boards with Words in Baltimore, which makes beautiful custom cutting board. The company gave me a lovely round Wander board for free, and I immediately knew that this small business was special. Words With Boards’ cutting boards are beautiful and functional. They make great gifts for brides, hosts, or for yourself.

The Words With Boards Story

Kim Strassner, a Baltimore couple, and Mike Pararas started making cutting board from leftover butcher block for friends during the holidays. They turned their passion into a successful business, and now they produce beautiful custom cutting and meat boards as well as wine racks made from sustainably harvested American hardwoods.

A Selection of Wooden Cutting boards

I received a round carving board (retail price of $140) with Wander on it. It was a smooth, beautiful wood. Wander looked great on the board. The bottom has four “feet”, so that the wood doesn’t have to be on the counter.

Despite the fact that the boards are made of beautiful hardwood, and the weight and material make it obvious that they’ll hold up to even the most demanding cutting tasks, I’ve not been able leave any marks on them. I used it to serve cheese and fruit. It’s too beautiful to mark it up. However, chefs have told me that knife marks on a board add character. The company’s site has options to use the board as a cookie tray. The possibilities are endless.

I love entertaining guests and serving different kinds of cheeses and crackers. It’s ideal to get several smaller boards for displaying crackers and cheese. You won’t need to constantly put out signs at a party. These boards, which start at $49, can be personalized with labels like ” gluten free,”” vegan,” and ” kosher,” for use during events.

Words With Boards was originally designed as a simple cutting board. They offer a variety of unique and fun products today. You can choose from round and oval boards in addition to the square or rectangular serving boards.

The company makes not only the cutting boards but also the carving boards that I have mentioned and –something I will definitely try — they now make wood wine racks (149-$225). They are perfect for my urban style small home. These are a great way to add a touch of country and wood in almost any style. It would look great in my modern house with natural materials like wood. This is also a wonderful way to display some of your favorite bottles of wine, especially if you are a wine enthusiast.

I love the wood pot holders (44 dollars). They’re cute and I might order one to add some whimsy on my dining table with a glass top. They come in a range of shapes, including cut-outs and the 50 US shapes. Prices start at $58 for dog leash holders, lazy Susans and other whimsical items.

It’s great to find a company in America that truly believes in their products. I adore my “Wander” cutting board. In the future, I’ll display cheeses and fruits on this board during wine dinners.
