When I think of DIY projects, my mind instantly goes to big, expensive overhauls. But smaller, simple projects are fun and can make just as much of a statement.

Case in point: Redditor ztrobbins wanted to make a new cutting board…but he didn’t want just any slab of wood. So he cut a bunch of wood up and glued it together. (Okay, so it wasn’t that easy, but you get the gist.)

I have to admit, I never thought I’d be jealous of someone who got a cutting board as a gift…but I am. I definitely wouldn’t mind having one of these in my own kitchen, even though it looks too pretty to use.

Ztrobbins began by purchasing nearly $80 worth of wood from his local lumber yard.
