Materials Needed

  • Strap or handle
  • Screws or tacks

Step 1: Grab the Materials

Head to your local lumberyard and ask an associate for their scrap wood section. Select a piece or two that is the perfect size for your needs.

Step 2: Sanding

Begin by lightly sanding the top and bottom sides of the wood. Pieces that are more damaged may require sanding with a lower grit (rougher) sand paper first before finishing with a 200+ girt (finer) sand paper.

Step 3: Coat with Mineral Oil

Use a food-grade mineral oil to coat the board. Allow the oil to soak into the board for a few hours or overnight. A well oiled board will help prevent any bacteria or liquids from penetrating the wood. You may want to repeat this process two or three times for particularly dry or aged wood.

Step 4: Add a Handle

Cut a strap to size (in this case we used a piece of scrap leather). Attach with screws or tacks.
