"We just love our new cutting board!  We saw the Artistic Woodcraft display in Costa Mesa and were impressed by the beauty of the cutting boards on display.  There were several types of wood, and various size boards, but we liked the walnut, which seemed unique in our experience.   We almost bought one one-the-spot, but were told they could make one "custom" for a comparable price.  We took a business card and went home to measure and plan.  This generated a new desire (good marketing, I guess), and we researched cutting boards on-line. After extensive research, I found Artistic Woodcrafts had the most beautiful and the most reasonably priced boards I could find.  We were amazed we "accidentally" found this amazing product!" 
"We ordered a walnut board in a size and design specific to our needs and received it in the mail soon after.  We absolutely love the board and receive comments whenever we use it with guests around.  Everyone who sees it is impressed.  Board maintenance instructions were supplied, and it is easy to keep the board looking new.  It is a work of art in a daily use kitchen utensil."

"We were lucky to find you at the Camarillo Wine festival.   We bought the very large walnut cutting board and a smaller size of the Walnut wood.  We had been looking for cutting boards for quite some time and could never find one that we loved.  With the boards you have we now have 2 wonderful cutting boards that are functional and beautiful.  They look awesome on our kitchen counter and are a work of art. 
I will be contacting you for presents in the future, as they are a perfect gift. Keep up the great work and so happy you were at the Camarillo Ranch house that day."

"When I received my box from Artistic Woodcrafts with the made-to-order size of the cutting board, I was super excited! The first thing I was impressed by was the way it was packaged and shipped, since I own a business where we ship through UPS and can see how things get damaged. My board arrived perfect! As I picked it up to place in my kitchen, I remember reading the "care instructions" that said, please don't be apprehensive to bringing a knife towards it, because I was! It is so beautiful, it's like a piece of art. I have already received numerous compliments on it! Not only do I use it as a cutting board, but I also use it as a serving platter because of it uniqueness and beauty. I look forward to having it for many years to come!"
