What customers are saying about Custom Cutting Boards:

Hey Dan,

just wanted to say thanks for the cutting board and knife holder.  They both fit great and look awesome.  Ive already told everyone who asks where I got them, so hopefully you’ll be getting more business.

Take care and thanks again!

So what do you do if you search the world over for a specific size cutting

board to fit that favorite prep spot in your kitchen, but you can’t ever

find it no matter how much you dig?  Well, you contact Dan at Custom Cutting

Boards in San Diego, that’s what.  And if you’re fortunate enough to live

within close enough distance of his shop, you can even do what my wife and I

did:  get in your car and drive over to design one with him exactly the way

you want it – right down to the last fraction of an inch in size and

thickness …and bevel …and curvature of the corners.  Also, you

accomplish all of this while receiving the knowledgeable consultation of a

seasoned craftsman and wood-worker helping you pick out the type of style,

wood, as well as composition that you feel best matches your décor theme.

Needless to say, it was a great experience to be able to create our very own

one-off board.  Ours is 31.25″ x 21.75″ x 1.75.”  It’s a massive, gorgeous

piece that has taken center stage on our kitchen island.  The board was hand

made with love by Dan out of American Walnut, Peruvian Walnut, American

Maple, Padauk (Burma), Wenge (Equatorial Africa) and White Zebra (West

Africa).  It was then shipped to us packaged and protected as if to

withstand a drop from an airplane.

Custom Cutting Boards is a real gem of a little company run by a true

gentleman who renders a high level of craftsmanship, service and can-do

attitude, along with a little humor – ingredients you sometimes feel have

all but disappeared from the American landscape.  We will definitively be

back for our next board.  And, I’m sure at least a friend or two of ours

will take the step we took and put the icing on the cake of their kitchen by

letting Dan build them one, too.  I have no doubt about this considering all

the great comments people make as soon as they lay eyes on our beautiful

board, oohing and awing.

Thanks Dan!

pullout_board02We got the cutting board yesterday, and today after putting some more coats of butcher block oil onto it, we were able to take some pictures for you.

We think the board is beautiful and we are very pleased with our purchase and your artistic efforts.

If you wouldn’t mind, could you let me know the different woods you used? I know we discussed them at the time of ordering, but I’m afraid I don’t remember what we decided upon.

Thanks again!

Good morning,

Just one word, WOW!! The board is so beautiful and I love it so much. I wanted to thank you for doing such a wonderful job on it and believe me I will be showing it off to everyone =).

Thanks again,


Dear Dan,

We bought our maple cutting board from you this past July.  As we have now been using it for quite a while, we wanted to send you a note of thanks for such an outstanding product!  Your work is outstanding, and the new maple board is SO much better than the one we’ve been using for years, that we wish we had ordered one from you many years ago!  Thank you for turning out such quality work, and we fully expect to enjoy many, many great years of using your superior maple cutting board!   Best wishes for continued success in your business, as you have certainly earned it.  If you would like to use our comments, as very satisfied customers, please feel free to do so.  Had your work not been as nice as it is, we would have been the first to tell you so.  Happily for us, you still do things the old-fashioned way, and use your fine skills to offer a superior product for those who, like us, want the very best!  Take care, and God Bless!

Every Good Wish,

Mark and Cynthia Rutledge

I’ve been meaning to let you know how much I like the board you made me! Thanks very much. The funny thing was, for the first two weeks we used it, my husband and I found ourselves forcibly yanking it out to use because we were so used to a board that would stick inside and had to be pulled hard to get it out! Finally, we have trained ourselves to pull it out gently. It’s just beautiful, and I appreciate your instructions on the care as well to keep it from cracking over the years.

Take care,

Marcia  🙂

Hi Dan,

Just wanted you to know how pleased we are with your craftsmanship.

The board is beautiful

Thanks so much!

We have a couple other items for you soon

Thanks again and have a nice holiday



Thank You.  I did receive the board today.  It is a fine piece of craftsmanship, and I am VERRRRRRRRRY happy.  I was a cook for ten years andhave seen many boards, but this one stands out on the top for sure.

Thanks again, it was worth the wait.  🙂

Dan, I received the cutting board this morning and it honestly exceeds my expectations! Boy was it sure worth the wait. The variation of accent wood turned out even more beautiful than I imagined. It is going to look amazing on our center island. Thank you again. I will recommend your work to my friends and family.

Howdy, I just received a custom 2″ cutting board from you. It’s fantastic and I think it will work out very nice. I’m in the process of soaking the wood with the butcher block oil. i appreciate having the instructions for care and cleaning sent along with the board.
I’m a happy camper.

Dan, I just wanted to thank you for the wonderful butcher block counter top that you made for us. It is purely a work of art. We are getting ready to build a new house and you better be ready because we will be calling you again to make another master piece. I will definately reccommend you to everyone I meet. Thanks again and have a wonderful Christmas.

We just received the cutting board today. It is just beautiful and I know our friends will love their much belated wedding gift.

Thank you so much.

Hi Dan, The cutting board arrived today. It’s beautiful; the feet are great; it doesn’t wobble; it fits our space perfectly. I’m seasoning it now. We didn’t realize how much we used the cutting board, until we had to live without one for a couple of weeks. Except for perhaps the sink, the cutting board is the most-used “appliance” in our kitchen! Thanks again for your help,

Good Morning Dan. We received our pull out board yesterday. You did a beautiful job and it fits fine. I recommend you to all of my friends and everyone else that asks about cutting boards. Thanks again,
