Topic tags/keywords: cutting board feet elevated question

I’ve noticed several cutting boards that seemed to be raised so the bottom doesn’t contact the counter. What ideas do you have for elevating cutting boards?

I did see one (But of course I can’t find it now) that showed round rubber (white) feet attached with a screw to the bottom corners.

Ace Hardware is where I have bought the feet I have used in the past. They have a nice black rubber foot that I typically grab for finishing off the cutting board if feet included.

My favorite, 35+ year, over-sized carving board (16” x 20”, 1.5” thick maple) has “bun feet”. They must be doweled and glued into the board, ‘cause they’ve never loosened. Raises the roast about 1” to the perfect carving height (for me). And it does look good.

Non-slip is never an issue, because I use this beast to carve and present huge roasts (20+ lbs). But I suppose you could epoxy non-slip material to the bottom of the feet (as on bench cookies).

I always put the little silicone pads on the bottom of mine to keep the board from sliding around. They are the pads used a lot of times on cabinet doors and drawers to soften the closing action. I’ve also made a few designs where the corners of the board are blocks that are thicker than the rest of the board to sit it up off the counter. Hope this helps!
