As difficult as it may be to believe, this cutting board is even more pleasing to the touch than it is to the eye thanks to a special finishing process that eliminates soft grain.

Handmade from start to finish by Alex Beaudet, each board is hewn from sustainably-sourced, domestic hardwood. The boards are meticulously hand shaped and sanded to a silky smooth finish before being sealed with a combination of food-safe oils and beeswax. 

A handsome, rounded handle offers a way to hang the board if you'd like to keep it out as an art piece in your kitchen. Perfect for use as a cheeseboard or breadboard when entertaining.

Many folks who come into our shop remark that Alex Beaudet's boards are too nice to use. Our suggestion? Use one side for cutting, and the other for display.

- Each is handmade so each is unique
- Measures approximately 24” long x 8" wide x 1" thick

Alex Beaudet is a meticulous craftsman and our closest neighbor in Pemaquid, Maine. The quality of his woodworking stands apart from that of others thanks to his attention to wood grain and finish.

Growing up, Alex spent many hours in his father’s small workshop. That means he has been making things as far back as he can remember - whether crafts for school projects or birdhouses for his mother's and grandmother’s gardens. Beyond the basics, he is mostly self-taught.

Almost all of Alex Beaudet’s pieces are crafted in his home workshop with the exception of smaller carved items such as spoons, which he prefers to do outside in warmer months or by the fire in colder weather.

In addition to his work as a woodworker, Alex owns and runs Pemaquid Falls Farm and Pemaquid Mercantile. Both of those small businesses function out of an old barn across the street from The Good Supply’s old barn to create a special place for neighbors to procure mixed vegetables, delicious eggs from laying hens, and new and vintage home goods.

From the artist: “I've never considered myself an artist by any traditional sense; most of what I grew up making was practical and utilitarian. But as I've developed a point of view and an aesthetic, my work has evolved. While I still try to make things that are primarily functional, I aim to make them equally beautiful to look at when not in use. For me, form will always follow function.”
