How to: Give New Life to an Old Cutting Board

upcycled cutting board

Fact: Wooden cutting boards get yucky…banged up, stained, rough, gouged, and with over exposure to water, the wood fibers get all fluffy and feather. But, it’s still wood, and with a little effort, you can bring it back to life with a few easy steps.

The Merry Thought offers a guide to upcycle a raggedy board using some basic tools and techniques.

Her tutorial offers a full reshaping of the board and carving some patterns in the handle, but you could simply forgo that step and use the tips simply to restore what you’ve got. 

Boom! We love recycling things for the home! Especially when they’re made to serve cheese and charcuterie 😉
