Maker - Amy Stringer-Mowart

AHeirloom
Made in the USA

Maker Story

State of Mind

We all have places that mean something special. Maybe it’s the state where you grew up, or where you met someone significant, or a treasured vacation spot. Today’s Grommet does triple duty as a handcrafted work of art, a functional cutting board, and a personal reminder of somewhere you love.

The creators, Bill Mowart and Amy Stringer-Mowart, made their first U.S. state-shaped cutting boards for their own wedding reception. They carved them in the shape of Michigan, where she grew up, and Connecticut, his home state. Family and friends loved them, and today the design duo is busy making cutting boards for all 50 U.S. states and 4 countries.

Bill and Amy run an interior design fabrication business, so they have the tools and the know-how to work with Plyboo, which is a butcher-block architectural plywood made from bamboo. You can see the layers of sustainably harvested bamboo in the ¾-inch thick material, which gets cut, sanded and finished by hand in Bill and Amy’s Brooklyn, N.Y. studio. Each cutting board is custom made to order, the perfect gift for yourself, a hostess, new homeowner, or bride and groom.
