I Just Bought - An Engraved Cutting Board

Like so many of my kindred souls out there, I use shopping as a tool to make myself feel better. So when I was recently feeling low, I took a look through my Etsy favorites and my Pinterest boards and decided to treat myself to this beauty. 

The Pi engraved cutting board from Elysium Woodworks has been on my radar for a long time. It comes in four different woods (bamboo, cherry, maple, and walnut) and two sizes (8x12 and 10x15). There are lots of other designs available, even some other fun math & science ones (like the Periodic Table and the Fibonacci Spiral). But Pi has a special meaning to me. Grandpa taught my sister and I to recite Pi to ten digits when we were very young. We were asked to perform whenever we were introduced to someone new and we were the first to raise our hands in geometry. I love the poetry of using something so functional, so useful, so grandpa, as a thing of beauty and decoration. 

Make sure to check out Elysium Woodworks on Etsy for your own engraved cutting board.
