Making a concrete chopping board or breadboard can be a bit tricky, but it’s not nearly as difficult as you might think. This tutorial will show you how to make a concrete chopping board or breadboard.
A concrete chopping board is easy to make and does a great job of keeping food from slipping and sliding. The board on the right has a simple design, but you may be unfamiliar with these materials. This kind of board can be used to make a breadboard as well. You will also need a spoon, a knife, a cutting board, and some food for the breadboard.
Now, we will discuss how to make a concrete cutting board.
Process of How to Make a Concrete Chopping board:
Step 1: Run to the lumber yard and get a 2X4, a piece of plywood, some screws, and a bag of ready mix.
Step 2: Cut the 2X4 into 4 pieces and screw them together in the form of a rectangle. Now cut the plywood to cover the box and screw it to one side of the box.
Step 3: Mix up some concrete. You won’t need much, maybe do it in your kitchen sink, and fill the box, about 1.5″ deep. Level the concrete with a trowel and let it dry.
Step 4: Once the concrete is dry, remove the screws, and the box, leaving you with a concrete slab.
Another way to make a chopping board is to cut a piece of wood in a 3″ circle and secure the two edges with some screws. Then simply put the board in a carpenter’s square and cut the wood into the circle.
A concrete chopping board is a great way to cut fruits, vegetables, or other foods without using a knife or cutting board. All you need to do is place the food on the chopping board and cut it with a firm and sharp knife. Chopping a new board is a very satisfying task, but there is only one way to get the job done correctly. And that means chopping it from end to end, so it’s easy to see, and it looks like a solid block rather than a slab of wood.
The primary reason for a breadboard and a chopping board is to protect the knife’s edge from hard surfaces that will dull it very quickly.
Concrete is a hard surface – very bad for the edge of a knife.
The secondary purpose of a cutting and or breadboard is decoration and transportation (from the kitchen to the table). Concrete is hefty – not good carrying around.
