How to Make a Raised Cutting Board

Today I made one of the quickest project ever! 

I turned a garage sale cutting board into a raised cutting board with one easy step!

I'll show you how easy it is and where you can get the supplies for less!

I found these gorgeous wooden egg cups at Marshalls.

You can also find similar on Amazon!

These cups are supposed to hold eggs.

And yes you can certainly use them to hold Easter eggs in your decor. 

I understand they can also hold soft boiled eggs.

But, I have a different idea for these little cuties!

I used wood glue and attached 3 of them to the bottom of this beautiful cutting board. 

They could really be attached in either direction but I thought the flat surface had more area for the glue to grip.

I will use the other 3 from this set to make another tray.

While the glue dried I put a heavy crock on top.

I gave the whole tray a coat of hemp oil to enhance the wood and I ended up with the most beautiful pedestal tray cutting board!

Keep your eyes out for wooden egg cups! 

The DIY for that cute burlap basket of carrots was a Homeroad DIY project too!

You can find unfinished egg cups on Amazon too.
