I love all the personal details that we have in our house, it really makes our home unique and purely ours. My husband and I have science backgrounds and love just about all things science. When I saw these cutting boards, I knew this was a unique item that I would enjoy having in my home. Do you have a friend or family member who is a cook and science buff? If so, they may really appreciate the beautifully laser engraved cutting boards that are made to order from Elysium Woodworks. All but one of their boards are made from caramelized bamboo that measure 9″ x 13.5″ x .75″ and you may choose from the following designs: the periodic table of the elements, the solar system, DNA double helix, Fibonacci golden spiral, or Pi. They also make boards with monogrammed family names, and as a wedding or anniversary gift – an oak tree with a carved heart containing initials (the oak tree board comes in maple, cherry, or walnut). After engraving, the boards are treated with food grade mineral oil and beeswax to seal and protect them. The back side of the cutting board remains plain for you to do your chopping on, leaving the design side untouched for display if desired. The cutting boards are $45 each ($35 for the oak tree) and will ship via USPS Priority mail (shipping not included) within 3-5 days after ordering. There is also gift wrapping available for an additional $5. Please visit http://www.elysiumwoodworks.com/ for more information.
