I used to be in an area where a local lumber dealer had “blank”
cutting boards in stock for slide-out kitchen applications.

Of course I can make them but it’s a lot of labor for something
that’s a common product and probably benefits from
a controlled industrial process in terms of consistency

Where do you buy them from?

You might try a kitchen cabinet place, but I think you can make one as good or better than you can buy for a lot less money. HTH.

The Chair Shop 830 Cantrell Circle, Gatlinburg (865)436-7413.

Randy Ogle is someone we’d all weep to have here on Lumberjocks. 4rth generation woodworker in the Gatlinburg area. Beautiful stuff. He makes cutting boards, lots of them a couple times a year. Give him a ring and he may be able to help you out.

when I need a pull out cutting board I use maple. Takes I guess 30 minutes or so.

Here’s one source, Loren. Pretty dramatic!

Ever wondered about an HDPE board? These folks might have some ideas.

Let us know, please, where you end up. I understand your question exactly; having a box there of 24×24 blanks when you need one is the way to go.

E B Bradley’s site is under construction; I couldn’t find any at Hafele but there are some at Louis & co. Alder, maple and (ahem!) oak. They also show a door mount stowage for cutting boards. That seems like a better overall solution than cutting into the top rail of a face frame.

Boos cutting boards are by far the best I have used. If they make a size that fits your needs and your budget I would use them. We normally order them from here: Boos Cutting Boards
