Custom Boards

Kim Strassner and Mike Pararas began making personalized cutting boards with words on them as holiday gifts for friends and family. The pieces were such a hit, they founded Words with Boards so anyone could give or receive one.

Their wooden serving and cutting goods are handmade in Maryland. Kim and Mike have a few expressions of their own (like Cheese and Happy Hour), or you can customize a board with your own words or a date, name, or location for a truly custom piece.

The boards and Lazy Susan servers are all hand-cut, hand-sanded, and then hand-sealed with food-grade mineral oil. That hard work pays off with a beautifully finished piece that showcases the natural maple wood and crisp, precision-cut lettering. Each one strikes the perfect gifting balance of handmade and heartfelt.
