Step 1: Materials

Picture of Materials
  1. A bamboo cutting board. We got ours at Marshalls but there are a ton on Amazon for a good price
  2. Bamboo Cooking Utensils. We also got ours at Marshalls but there are a ton on Amazon too. This set is only about $5.

*We find that bamboo works best for laser engraving.

Step 2: Make the Design

Click here to get the exact illustrator file I used. Feel free to use it and edit it as you wish. I've also included the .pdf file of the design I used.

The font I used is called University. You can download it here for free for personal use.

Step 3: Engrave the Cutting Board

I used our Epilog Mini Laser which is 40 watts.

On the front I engraved "Mr. & Mrs. Hazen" in the upper corner so that they could still use that side of the board without it getting all messed up.

On the back is where I engraved the larger design right in the center.

Step 4: Engrave the Cooking Utensils

I engraved "Mr. & Mrs. Hazen" onto the handle of each utensil. I thought it might look cool if they decided to hang those all up the same way.

Step 5: Wrap It Up & Give Them Their Favorite Gift!
