If you're not into Final Fantasy, maybe you'd like Tony Montana and "Scarf Place" on your cutting board. Or Jules Winnfield demanding, "Let's get these motherfuckin steaks on that motherfuckin flame!" Or Inigo Montoya battle crying, "You grilled my burger. Prepare some fries."

Dave Stencil of Cutting Boredom is as clever with his parodies as he is adept with his woodwork. The craftsman makes all of his boards in his shop in San Diego, "using real saws and actual glue." Also real: his images. Stencil etches or inlays (your choice) the details from actual photos of Al Pacino, Sam Jackson, and Mandy Patinkin into the wood.

Cutting Boredom inlays involve laser etching a design into the board, and then infilling it with another piece of contrasting wood cut to fit (puzzle style). The resultant surface is smooth and polished so you won't feel the outline of Ryan Gosling's eyes when you're chopping onions over them. With the etch only option Stencil doesn't take the laser as deep. The result is a "burnt-on" look that does have slight indentations at etched image and text areas. Obviously, Inlays sell at a higher price point that Etch Only models.

In addition to carving method, most Cutting Boredom boards also come with your choice of customization, either on an existing design, or one that Stencil will personalize just for your wedding, anniversary, birthday, or Mac Daddy of the Grill coronation.
