It came as I was walking out the door, but came back in to see it. It is beautiful!!! I just keep looking at it! I may want a rectangle one in the near future. That walnut is stunning!! I also love having a handle on that board! None of my cutting boards have a handle. What a beautiful job you did on my board. I’ll keep your card handy and hope to get another one soon!

Thanks so much!!

The board arrived today and it is GORGEOUS!!!  I love it.  I use the other one daily — both as a food prep board and also presentation board — and am loving it more and more.  This new one is such a beautiful complement to my kitchen and the dramatic grain is wonderful.

Thank you also for the honey stick — it’s so cute!

Hello Michael,

Yes, they did arrive in perfect condition yesterday morning. I opened them right away but had to leave and never got on-line to e-mail you.

I love, love, love them! All of them are just beautiful and I don’t know which would be my favorite, but the large board is outstanding. I just love the different woods. I am so glad I went that route. I am very pleased with all of them. Thank you so much. And thank you for the honey stick. It is beautiful, with the little bee.

Again, thank you so much and you will probably be hearing from me again! I do like wood.

Just sending you a picture of the gift basket I made for our daughter and her fiancé. As you can see, the gift would not have been the same without the custom ice cream scoop!
Thank you for putting forth the effort to make it and for getting it to me in time for Christmas. It was absolutely perfect!
Merry Christmas!

Hi Michael,

They did indeed arrive!  So positively beautiful – thank you sooooo much!  I don’t guess you’d consider making a salt & pepper shaker set in a similar shape but larger?  The wine bottle stoppers remind me so much of a set I received as a wedding gift made from a very dark wood.  They would be beautiful in one of the beautiful woods and/or wood/acrylic combos!!  If you would consider it, I’ll try to find my old ones and send you a pic!

I posted a pic and tagged you on instagram, btw.
Thanks!!

I just got home and saw them. Wow, I just love them. It is so nice to see your work. I know the families will adore them. A little info on where one of the boards is going. The family for the 16″ round board is getting ready for his fifth olympics on the US team this summer.  They are finally settled in the US after years of traveling for work.
Have a great week Michael. I’ll be in contact soon for my mother and father in law. I’m going to get them one next. I just need to figure out what will fit them best.

Michael…
OH. MY. GOODNESS.  It is awesome! My husband and I think our son is just going to be thrilled with it and so does his sister. The wood is beautiful and the monogram is perfect. Thank you so much for making my lil Christmas wish a reality for him. I hope you and your family have a Merry Christmas. If I need anything else (like a cutting board!) or he wants a second mirror, I’ll get in touch with you – so don’t throw the pattern away!! 😄

Hi Michael!

Sorry for taking so long to get back to you, time got away from me with all the holiday hustle bustle.  I did indeed receive the board, and I want to say it is more gorgeous than I could have imagined, in both looks and quality! Thank you for doing such a fantastic job on it, and also getting it to me before Christmas.  I know my mother will love it! There is nothing in a store that could compare to the beauty of this handcrafted piece, thank you so much again!

Sincerely,

Syd

I can see why you had quite a time figuring out how to wrap/package it! Everything came through just fine—the board and the wood conditioner.  It’s beautiful! I hope you took photos, and posted them on your various sites.  I’ll wait to send you a photo after the guys get done working today. I won’t have the counter tops for a couple of weeks yet, which will really set off the colors. Thank you so much.

Michael,
Just wanted to thank you so much for my gorgeous cutting board!  It is exactly what I wanted and you were so prompt with your emails to me and also in producing and sending my board quicker than I thought possible.  As you can see, the board fits exactly as I imagined on top of my cabinet.  I had wanted it to be a “work horse” but I may have trouble using it as the board is so beautiful.  I look forward to many years of enjoyment and I’m sure my children will fight over it when I’m gone!
Thank you again for your excellent work!

Just letting you know that I got home to be greeted by my two chopping boards at the door. :)) They are absolutely beautiful. Thank you so much.
They are heirlooms! I will look after them – by following the instructions and using the wood conditioner. Also by just enjoying the use of them too.
When we get settled in our new home, will be sure to send you a photo. Speak soon. Again, thank you so much. The chopping boards are just what I wanted.

I can’t say how much I love Michael Laico! I have ordered many times from him and every item I have received is a work of art. His craftmanship is exceptional and every piece is beautiful. In addition, his customer service is amazing; he keeps me updated with emails and estimated arrival dates and he is always on time with delivery. The woodworking and craftmanship is so gorgeous that I sometimes don’t even want to use the pieces because I want to keep them pristine and display them in my home. I have told him many times that I don’t know how he does such exquisite work. I have given his cutting boards and honey sticks as holiday and birthday gifts and each recipient loves them! I adore telling people these are handcrafted in the USA from hand-selected wood in a craftman’s shop. The pieces are charming and definitely of heirloom quality. I can’t stress enough how impressed I have been with everything about Michael Laico – how exceptional his craftmanship is and how lovely he is as a person as well. I’m completely enamored by his work and I hope to be ordering from him for many years to come!

Michael,
I ran up to the truck and grabbed it.  The FedEx man laughed!  It is so amazing!  The colors, the shape, the feel…I am so happy I found YOU.
Work of Art!  Thank you for your art and for the excellent service.
The honey dipper is sooo cool, I love.  The feel and colors are  perfection.
Thank you for sending the conditioner too!
I will post on Insta but will not reveal the board until the shoot next week.  I will do a separate post about you as well.  You will receive images for your use.  In addition, I will make sure you get a copy of the magazine “Dining Out San Diego” with your board’s glam shot.
I am smitten!
Thank you!!!!

Hi Michael,
I just wanted to let you know how pleased my husband is with the ice cream paddle.  Every time he uses the paddle, he remarks about how easy it is to use with the wide blade and sturdy wooden handle.
Thank you again.

Dear Michael,
It is absolutely magnificent!  My husband says that he’s not sure now what he was expecting, but that what you have created blows away whatever expectation he had.  He has informed me that it is a piece of art, and I shouldn’t use it….
At the moment it is resting in the light where we can visit it and admire it 😉  Not in the kitchen…..
I will use it and enjoy it-he wants me to use it as a serving piece, not an every day work surface.  And truthfully, the grains and patterning in the wood you chose is just magnificent.   It is peopled with all sorts of beings- we’ve found a bear, several eyes, and other creatures so far.
I love how the wood contrasts on one side of the board, and melts almost seamlessly from the large piece of wood to the smaller one on the reverse.  You matched the grains perfectly so they look almost like they grew together.
There just aren’t enough words, Michael.  It is so absolutely smooth, and the extra sanding makes the grain appear mulch-dimensional.  It shimmers and moves with the light.
We love the live edge.  It is perfectly finished, beautifully shaded, wonderfully sculpted, and transports this piece from the everyday to the extraordinary.
Thank you so much for all of the love and care you poured into creating this wonderful cutting/serving board.  We will enjoy it so much.

Check her blog at Forest Garden, you’ll be glad you did!!

When my wife showed me one of your homemade ice cream scoops on Instagram, I knew it would be perfect for a Christmas gift. Despite being busy,  Michael had it made and shipped out in a few days in plenty of time for Christmas. The gift was a hit. She loves it.Thanks for the awesome custom scoop and customer service. We will definitely recommend you to all our friends.
thank you,

Michael – I received the items tonight. They are so cool, I can’t believe it. Absolutely BEAUTIFUL !! I LOVE THEM ! I will email you pictures of them in our house on Christmas before I (begrudgingly) give them away as gifts. My Brother and Sister are going to flip for them, they are so beautiful! We are moving to Greensboro this summer and I will be ordering the same items then for my new kitchen too. They are gorgeous, exceptional craftsmanship. Thank you again and happy holidays!!!! Toni

Hey Michael, I received the board, it’s truly beautiful. I bought one for myself several months ago and loved it so much that I got a second one for my sisters Christmas gift. Beautifully packaged and promptly delivered. Do yourself a favor and get one of Michael’s lovely board; you will be not be disappointed. I wrapped the box it was delivered in and can’t wait to give it to my sister!

Hi Michael, I did receive the ice cream scoop & it is beautiful!  It is a Christmas gift for my son who loves to make ice cream.  We have a similar ice cream scoop with a wood handle (but slightly smaller) & my son asked if he could have our scoop so instead I began looking for one. When yours came, my husband said, “Oh! let’s keep this one & give Evan the old one” !!!

Anyway, it is wonderfully unique.

Thank you, Susan

Oh, Michael, the hand mirror came today and it’s exquisite!  I’m so pleased with it and will take care of it and cherish it always until it’s time to hand it down to my daughter.  Thank you so much.  When I get a chance, I will take a photo of it on my antique vanity and send the photo to you.  Merry Christmas to you and yours.

Love and hugs, Natalie  🙂

Hi Michael,
The paddle arrived, as promised, on Tuesday.  I love it!  I know my husband will be equally pleased.  This is truly a unique gift.  It is very sturdy and the handle has a nice feel to it.  Talenti will take on a whole new appreciation.
Thank you for your prompt, courteous service.  As I mentioned earlier, I may be in touch (after the Christmas holiday), to order a rolling pin.
Be well and all the best to you and your family.

Hi Michael
I received my cutting board today.  It is lovely.  I would like to order three more just like it.  One to go to each of the people that I sent their addresses.  The third is for me.  The one that you have address for are for Christmas.  The one for me is not for Christmas.

Thank you,

Hi Michael,
You made three beautiful round walnut boards for me at the beginning of the summer.  The bride and groom loved them and so did I.  Thank you again for the lovely cheese board you sent us.  We are enjoying it regularly.
I would like to place another order.  In looking at your website, I see that you have a cheese board with handle that has a hole for hanging.  I’d like to order three of these 12 inches in walnut for Christmas gifts.

My internet was down all day, yes I got my package and so did Emily. LOVE the board and scoop, the one you picked is the one that I picked for myself. Good call. Emily loves her board she couldn’t get over how beautiful it is and she said it’s as smooth a a baby’s bottom. Thank you so much, I am going to blog about it this week, pass on the info about your work to everyone and I am going to be ordering a few more. I want to get one and have a give away. What do you think? The same one you sent to Emily. I also am ordering probably next week the one for my friend in Long Island.

Thank you again, you are amazingly talented and a true craftsman.

Absolutely beautiful, the craftsmanship, the wood, the shape, I found it waiting for me after returning from the airport. Again Michael, thank you and thank Debbie for sharing her stool with others.

Sorry for my late reply.  I had actually already left to go up to the mountains, but my husband brought your package up to me.  I just opened it and the cutting boards are just beautiful!!!  The wood is gorgeous and the finish is so smooth and unlike anything I have ever felt.  These are going to be just perfect.
Thank you also for my surprise gift — it is also spectacular, and the wood conditioner.  You have really outdone yourself.  I can’t thank you enough.
Have a wonderful vacation.  It has been a pleasure,

I will surprise Phil on Valentine’s, your work is amazing!  I cannot tell you how much I loved them, and wait until Phil sees them! He LOVES wood boards 🙂

Oh Michael,
There just aren’t words- Thank you for constructing such absolutely gorgeous works of art for us!  And Two!  You have blessed us richly, and we both appreciate it so very much.  My husband just loves them both 😉 And the grains in the walnut are the prettiest I’ve seen.  The grain looks just like rippling water, or perhaps that special pattern in the sand as the tide is going out where the sand is sculpted by the water.

The design, the proportions, and the finish on the wood are just perfection.  The boards feel like silk.  I will admire them for a while before actually putting any food on them!

We will tell everyone we know, who loves fine wood, about you and your work, Michael, and I’ve already taken photos to post to Forest Garden this afternoon.  We were out when they arrived, and found them on the porch.  Everything was in perfect condition.  Thank you for packing them so well.

Check out Forest Garden blog, lots of great post and pictures. Today she posted about the boards on her blog, to read more about her post click this link:  Forest Garden Below is a picture of the boards that she took after unpacking them!

Hello Michael,
My package was waiting at my door when I got home today. Thank you so very much, the cutting board is fantastic. It’s too pretty to use so I am going to use it for decoration in my kitchen and order another one to use for cooking. Thank you for the wood conditioner, I wasn’t expecting to also get some of that to take care of my board.

I wanted to send you a quick note to thank you for the cutting board, it is beautiful! I gave the board to my mom as a gift and she loved it. I am gonna need two more boards, one for me and one for my brother. Your work is beautiful, I showed a couple of friends the board so you might get orders from them too.

Thanks! Larry Jordan

* * * * * * * * * * * * * * *

Hey Michael,
I started woodburning designs into cutting boards a few months ago, creating some really nice pieces. Though the designs were custom, my boards were still cheap, mass-produced boards available from department stores. Today I received my first Michael’s Woodcraft board, a custom piece, which I’ll be using on my next big pyrography project. It’s so much nicer to work with a real board. Rather than the look of something you might find on the shelves of a store, I’m now working with something that you might see in the kitchen of a chef. Thanks so much for this custom piece. I’ll send you photographs once I’m done with the design.

  1. Hi Michael,

    I just wanted to let you & your readers know that the quality and artistry of your cutting boards are unparalleled and of the highest quality. The various boards that come from your workshop are being used on a daily basis in my busy Pennsylvania kitchen. From helping me prep ingredients for recipes to feed my family, to using them for the photography on my blog & online store, your cutting boards have worked flawlessly! They even help me during catering events.

    Designer friends of mine, homemakers that I know, chefs that are near me all have said that your cutting boards are superb. I’m lucky to be able to collaborate with Michael’s Woodcraft on the special cutting boards that are now offered through my online store, Heritage Home.

    Many Thanks Michael!!!!

    David
