Easy Bread Boards: DIY Gifts and Giveaway

cuttingboards-3 copy

The holidays will be here before you know it and I’ve got a simple gift idea to share today.  Actually, these bread boards, cutting or serving boards are so easy you’ll probably want to make several and check more than just a few names off your gift giving list. Luckily, I created an assortment of plans/cutting guides so each of your recipients can receive a unique handmade board.  Have fun with all the variations, try different species of wood. I enjoyed making these so much that I plan to make several more!


The key piece to these boards is quality lumber.  Untreated hard woods with a tight grain are best, like cherry, walnut or maple. Softer woods like pine or woods with a very open grain like oak, are not ideal species of wood for cutting boards. You can purchase quality lumber from a local hardware dealer or specialty wood shop.


Other than the wood, simple tools are all that you need. All of the handle templates include a centering guide to make it easy to accurately center them on the boards.

Visit Ryobi Nation for the detailed instructions including how to cut the hexagon board with a miter saw for perfectly straight cuts.  You can also download the other templates/cutting guides for all the shapes featured at Ryobi Nation. All of the templates can easily be cut with a jig saw too.

    I like the rustic look of the holiday centerpiece and it looks like a beginner might be able to make it.

    I think these breadboards are awesome. They would make great present with a freshly baked loaf of bread
