Elysium Woodworks is a creative husband and wife shop that offers all kinds of fun, personalized and custom engravings on wood cutting boards. The California-based team creates designs which often start as sketches on paper and are eventually transformed into these gorgeous, intricate carvings. The imaginative concepts include hand drawn images, clever quotes and phrases, and even the periodic table of elements. But really, they are willing to work with any custom design to help you create the perfect gift for any occasion!
The duo say, “We strive to produce the finest woodwork, invoking quality and craftsmanship of a bygone era.” The boards are offered in four types of wood–maple, beech, white oak, and walnut. After engraving is complete, the wood is coated in oil and beeswax and buffed to a satin sheen. The backside of the board is left untouched, maintained as a surface for cutting so that the front design can be preserved in presentation-like quality.
