Looking for a handmade wood cutting board with a bit of a twist? Brad and Emily Weckesser have it. Their not-for-profit Etsy shop, Richwood Creations, features the couple's beautiful and interesting line of handcrafted wood goods for the kitchen, including etched patterned cutting boards, rolling pins, and recipe boxes.
Emily does the design work, while Brad does all the carpentry and woodwork, and each piece is made to order. For personalized orders, names and initials are engraved onto the wood through a laser process.
And the not-for-profit thing? All the profits from Richwood Creations go to supporting and helping young people in rural Appalachia.
I think any one of these boards — personalized or not — would make a wonderful gift. I love the idea of giving one of the recipe boxes to a friend or family member, and including a few favorite recipes inside!
