4 Unusual Uses for Paddle Cutting Boards

Paddle cutting boards are pretty boring, right?

Utilitarian, unremarkable, and easily thrown out, a wooden chopping block is rarely seen as anything more than just that — a slab upon which to, well, cut things.

But what if we told you your old wooden paddle cutting board is more versatile than you give it credit for?

At Virginia Boys Kitchens, our mission is to give back more than we take while providing our customers with the most beautiful, responsibly sourced kitchenware that’s crafted to last a lifetime.

Before banishing your old cutting board to the trash heap, check out these quirky alternatives and utilitarian solutions to keeping your paddle cutting board out of the landfills and bringing out its true potential.

Alternative Uses For Your Wood Paddle Cutting Board — Reduce, Reuse, Upcycle

Perfect for upcycling and reusing, our wooden paddle cutting boards are adaptable and capable of wearing many hats.

So, whether you’re looking for classic kitchen-themed décor items made from reclaimed and repurposed quality wood or decorative bases that are easy to hang, read on for a number of eco-conscious and creative ideas for your cutting board.

Serving Trays and Cheeseboards

Having guests over for afternoon tea? Or perhaps an evening of fine wine and cheese with the ladies?

Photo Backdrop

Whoever said being a photographer was expensive?

Getting the right picture can be tiresome work. From lighting to angling and from the Rule of Thirds to the ever-so-important location, the perfect image takes work.

But what if we told you the secret to your photography needs was hiding in your kitchen cabinet?

Our professionally crafted, smooth-finished wood paddle pieces offer a quick DIY solution to your every visual need:
