DIY Wood Riser from old Cutting Board you head to the garbage or recyle bin with that old cutting board, lets take a quick look at it again ;). I feel that we throw out so much “stuff” these days, but maybe we can take a second look at this junk and see how we can re purpose it??


  • cut cutting board into 4 pieces (this is totally up to you what size you want)
  • sand down the cutting board so its smooth
  • stain and seal with color you like
  • cut 4 legs out of dowels and use dowel screws to attach
  • VOILA!

I place it beside my sink and it holds my soap and a candle, but the sky is the limit with these little risers, you could use them for plants or lotions – whatever you like!
