There’s no rule forbidding people from loving video games and cooking, so Jim Van Winkle took it upon himself to design this cutting board with the pixelated image of Mario ingrained into its wood. The handy chef’s tool perfectly captures the likeness of the iconic video game character as he appeared in the Nintendo Entertainment System mega-hit Super Mario Bros. It’s so well done, in fact, that you may be tempted frame it as art rather than use it as a slab of wood where you cut your vegetables on.

Jim Van Winkle is currently accepting pre-orders for the Mario cutting board over on his Etsy store, Prairie Oak Studios. It takes around 2 to 3 weeks to fashion the boards, and its dimensions measure approximately 13" x 11" x 1 3/4" thick.
