DESCRIPTION

Have you ever wished you had a custom cutting board? Tired of the same ole ‘run of the mill’ boards? Wouldn’t it be better to customize your own? It’s free here at the UCA Makerspace! Come join us and use our laser engraving machine to modify your cutting board!

What do I need to do? Just bring in your favorite cutting board, or buy a one and bring it with you!

What can the Makerspace help you do with it? We can engrave things like:

  • A photograph of your kids
  • Personalized quotes
  • Your favorite recipe

  • Bring in your own wood cutting board
  • Bring in your own laptop (if possible)
