Handcrafted, modern-rustic designs.

The unique curves and colors of live edge wood, the quality of vintage metal furniture and industrial items...we are inspired by the natural characteristics and longevity of these materials. We started RusticCraft to give us the opportunity to salvage and up-cycle these materials into handcrafted, modern-rustic pieces of functional art.
Thank you for considering us for your special gifts ♥

We specialize in Personalized Cutting Boards. Personalized Cutting Boards are great for unique wedding gifts, 5th anniversary gifts (traditional gift is wood!), 6th anniversary gifts (wood is the modern gift for the sixth anniversary), bridal shower gifts, housewarming gifts, birthday gifts or even just for your own kitchen!

All the cutting boards we list in our shop are ready-to-ship, and come wrapped in their own custom burlap bags with a customized information and care sheet.

Many people choose a custom-designed and hand-engraved personalization for their gifts. After the order is placed, I design the engraving and send along an engraving design proof for your approval as soon as I am able. We work hard to get orders finished and shipped quickly---See current processing times in our Etsy Shop.
Rush processing & Express Shipping upgrade options are available also.

Our Story

Having a career in architectural design honed my love for the design process, giving me the opportunity to transform ideas into objects of beauty that will function well in our modern households. Being a LEED Accredited Professional in Building Design & Construction, I am sensitive to the environment, and am resolute in practicing and promoting reuse & recycling. What some might consider outdated waste, I see as a chance to salvage something old –make it new again- into useful objects that have purpose and meaning. -Sam

Having come from a family of woodworkers, I have inherited a deep appreciation for the variation in strength, color and texture that different species of wood have to offer. The versatility and unique characteristics of each individual piece of lumber make every project I work on one of a kind. -Nick
