Thanks to Walnut Hollow for sponsoring this post. Project ideas and opinions are my own.
Remember back a few months ago when I posted my thrift haul video? (Which was supposed to be monthly but I’ve still only done one.) I found a couple of little cutting boards and I told you I had ideas for them both. The first one was stenciled with a rooster and is now sitting on a ledge in my sisters kitchen with her collection of chickens. I pictured the second one with wood burned designs around the edge.

I loved the rounded edge of this thrift store find. I wouldn’t usually buy a cutting board at a thrift store but this one looked brand new and I disinfected it good when I got it home.
The rounded edge turned out to be a little more difficult than burning on a straight, flat surface but I found a method that worked well for me. I held the wood burning tool with the universal point level and turned the board with my left hand. That made a straight line along the top and bottom of the sides.
I burned my name in the side and then just freehanded designs around the remainder of the edge.
Then I served my favorite fall snack on it!
This may be my new favorite winter hobby! It’s like doodling with a nice, warm pencil.
