I’ll show you how easy it is to restore an old wood cutting board. We’ll walk through how to clean a wooden cutting board, how to sanitize a wood cutting board, how to sand a wooden cutting board and how to condition and refinish a wooden cutting board.
I am not one of those who usually gets lucky in thrift stores or garage sales. I have a friend who has an incredible thrift store radar…but she hasn’t shared it with me yet (Sherry…I’m looking at you!)
On a recent thrift store foray, when I had a list of items that I was looking for that included an old wooden cutting board…guess what I found?
A thick, edge-grain cutting board…with feet nevertheless. With a 14″ diameter and 1 1/2″ thick, it’s a great size.
And it was only $10.00…that really never happens to me.
It showed signs of use and was quite sticky, but I was excited to bring it home and restore it.

TA DA….and that’s how easy it is to restore an old wood cutting board…took me part of a day and most of that time was the cutting board soaking or drying.
I may use this cutting board more as a serving piece than an actual cutting board.
By the way, do you ever have just meat and cheese for dinner? It’s one of our favorite meals…and a tradition on Christmas tree decorating day. We vary the meats and cheeses but do like some sweet and savory jams with whatever we decide upon. This savory onion jam and spiced cranberry conserve are our current favorites.
See that hammered copper pot in the background? It was another one of my thrift store finds…but I couldn’t tell you if it was a good deal or not.
Oh, I almost forgot…this cutting board has a little…something on the bottom…not sure what to call it.
The only thing I can think of is that it is for a big butcher type knife. What do you think?
If you love this big chunky round cutting board but haven’t happened upon one in the thrift store to refurbish, I did see that you can get a new one on Amazon.
How about a little before and after action!
