I'm 5'10 and my husband is 6'4, I always said when we build our home I want all the counter 3 inches taller. If you're tall and spend any time in the kitchen, you're always slightly bent over and your low back starts hurting - - at least mine. Argh!
One day, while watching Sam, The Cooking Guy on YouTube give a tour of his kitchen,
he talked about a raised cutting board! I stopped the video and googled it (I'll save the search, it's over $400!) So i started poking around for cheaper alternatives and saw a few I liked and figured I'd make my own!
Here's Sam's tour video, which I highly recommend. I love all his videos :)
OK... Enough fan-girling, back to my Raised Cutting Board............
Drilled the holes in the four corners, attached the plates and tried the legs out.
Painted the legs with acrylic paint and stuck them in a to-go box to dry :)
After the legs dried, I realized I better attach gripper feetsies << That's what I call them,
you don't want to be all sous-cheffing and your board goes flying out from under you.
So I picked these Scotch Gripping Pads up on Amazon.
I got the 1.5" ones and they fit perfectly!
I love how it turned out and you can even use it in a charcuterie display!
Thanks for following along and if you make one, please tag me! I'd love to see it.

Anything can be made beautiful with pink spray paint and a little glitter :)
Thanks for the coffee!
Please know that every dollar is appreciated and brings me such joy to know you appreciate my work.
