Welcome

Welcome! Wood Be Mine specializes in custom engraved, eco-friendly and unique gifts for you and yours. Thank you for stopping by!

► All my materials and packaging are sustainable growth, recyclable, and/or compostable!

► My high resolution, industrial grade laser engraver ensures precision engraving to get your details just right!

► I'm more than happy to help you design a truly unique piece. Please don't hesitate to contact me with your thoughts!

► Mindful maintenance is key when you have a wooden butcher block, cutting board, or serving board. Improper storage, drastic changes in humidity, or an overnight soak in even the smallest of puddles can leave you with a board that’s warped, cracked, or otherwise damaged. Please be sure to store your products in cool, dry places, to wipe clean after every use, and treat your cutting board with mineral oil or butcher block conditioner as needed.

Shipping

► CURRENT ORDER TURN-AROUND TIME is approx. 2-3 weeks, with domestic shipping times ranging from 2-6 days and international 6-15. All products are shipped either USPS or Fedex ground depending on destination.

If you need your order sooner, I have several rush production options available here:

Please keep in mind that each of my beautiful, hefty chopping blocks and bamboo pieces are handmade and made-to-order, meaning my turnaround is often longer than other engraving shops who sell pre-manufactured items. The best things often require patience!

► Do you do custom designs?

I do! Please email me with your thoughts. If you provide the artwork, (ie: a logo, wedding invite, or hand written-recipe,) there is no additional design charge and pricing for the cutting board is based on engraving size. If you would like me to design something for you, a $6.00 - $10.00 design fee applies. This includes as many mock-ups as necessary to get it just right!

► Can I change / move / omit text on a design?

Absolutely! All of the text in any one of my designs in completely customizable. Since all of the artwork is made by me personally, designs can be very flexible. All I ask is that you consider space limitations and choose words/phrases that are similar in length to the sample designs. Please be sure to leave all of your personalization info in the "add a note to Wood Be Mine" comment box during checkout :)

Why is shipping to my address so expensive?

My cutting boards are very thick and quite heavy, (approx. 7 pounds!) so actual shipping costs usually range between $10 and $21.00 for domestic shipments and as high as $60.00 for international! While I've considered selling lighter boards to reduce shipping costs, it's the hefty, solid, end-grain style of my larger chopping blocks that make them one of a kind!

Etsy automatically calculates shipping with USPS but, if you're concerned with costs, feel free to send me your shipping postal code in a message and I'll get some quotes for you from UPS and Fedex that might be a bit better!

Do you ship internationally?

I do! Keep in mind however that because the boards are quite heavy (approx. 7 pounds,) International shipping can be pricey: typically ranging from $50 to $70. This does not include any duties or customs fees that may apply.

Do you offer quantity discounts?

I do! Please contact me to discuss larger orders and options for combined shipping. Due to limited production capacity however, (I'm only me!) my maximum order quantities are below:

Cutting boards: Limited to 5 pieces to one order
Coasters: Limited to 10 sets of 4 (or 40 individual pieces)
Spoons / Spatulas: 5 sets or 10 individual pieces
