52 Create – Hockey Stick Cutting Board

52 Create – my weekly creative output for 2011!  Well last week I promised something new and exciting this week, and here it is!  I was cleaning out my workshop and found a pile of old broken hockey sticks.  I never threw them out as I figured I could find a use for them someday, well that day came last week.

This cutting board is made out of 5 hockey sticks that have been laminated together and then planed flat.  Due to the variations in construction from different companies, you get a beautiful pattern when it is all assembled.  I left the outside edges unfinished to pay homage to the cutting board’s past life.  The board is coated in mineral oil, keeping it food safe and looking great for years to come.

 

This 9×9″ cutting board is already up for sale on my Etsy site, I expect it to go fast as the NHL playoffs finish off in the upcoming weeks!
