About

Our First Project

Our Kickstarter project is crafting classic, quality cutting boards using high quality, hand picked hardwood lumber. From dicing up dinner to chopping up some snacks, our goal is to add a bit of quality craftsmanship to your kitchen that will last. We have a local lumber supplier that allows us to be very selective in choosing materials. This ensures that only lumber with the best color and the highest grain quality are used in crafting our boards.

Supporting our project will allow two disabled veterans to expand their business by acquiring better woodworking tools and to start a website. These two things will allow us to share our love for hardwood crafting with more people, successfully expanding our business, and helping support our family.  In addition to tools, the money will pay for the materials needed to create the pledge rewards. 

Thank you for you support and God Bless!

About the Process 

Each and every item is hand-crafted, one at a time, here in the Heart of Texas. Each item is unique. No two are exactly the same! We hand-select each piece of wood for superior grain placement to make the boards beautiful and durable classic designs. 

We start with the item you select, with the chosen details customized by you. Below are a few photos showing the detail and process involved in creating the items.  

Each item, whether it be large or small, goes through a rigorous  process of carefully selecting the wood, laying out the design of the board, glueomg and clamping process, routing (shaping) the edges, multiple stages of sanding, and finishing the details. Then the finishing coats of a custom food-safe finish are applied. There are more steps than you think involved!

As a side note, we do our best to get all of our creations to the exact sizes in the discriptions, but from time to time the dimensions can vary slightly.

Risks and challenges

The only risk i could see, would be a huge amount of backers that could cause me to push back the completion date.
