I have a few large end grain cutting boards in the works.
They are approx 17×11 x 1 1/2.
I am curious what others have used for feet
on the bottom of the board ? Where do you get them ? And
How many ? Four corners and the center ?

I have looked a few places, but not too sure about what to use.

Thanks for helping,

Lisa

Why not just make some nice wood ones from some left over stock you have?

Dustbunny, Many moons ago,I uses rubber feet with screws. Got them from Ace hdwr. Then, I was called by my better half to watch a cooking show. The cook (or chef) was using a very beautiful board with no feet. Then I start watching around and lo and behold most of the nicer boards didn’t have feet. So, I stopped using feet. My boards are “reversible”! Hope this helps. You do an awesome job on your boards. Be carefull or you might start talking like the inspired Degoose!

I have found that the silicone sticky bumper dots don’t stick that well to my cheese slicers which are oiled like a cutting board. Not advised to use them, which is too bad.

I get mine from Lee Valley. I use the 3/4” ones on my 16”x12” boards. Just put them on the four corners.

I have built maybe a dozen boards, in all size’s and the silicone sticky feet have worked fine for me and I have not had any complaints over the last 5 years or more.

Rubber feet with an integrated metal washer from HD like the others have mentioned. That is if I won’t be flipping it over.

-- some day I hope to have enough clamps to need a clamp cart!

Thanks for all the input.
closetguy posted what I was imagining.
I have checked my local HD and they don’t carry the grippy kind only slider types.

Usually I don’t do feet, but the purpleheart weave board I just did has a knot that I conveniently placed on the bottom as I knew this was not going to be a reversible board.

Thanks,

Lisa

When I cleaned out my dad’s place after he passed away he had a box of stuff from these guys Back then there was no website listed on the bags (I just checked and the now have a website, hence the link) but he had lots of different self adhesive pads of different sizes and shapes. Knowing Dad he probably called and asked for samples and these are what he got, but even years later the glue is still sticky and I use them for things like cutting boards and box bottoms.

You might contact them and ask for some samples
