These Tools Function as Wood Cutting Boards, Serving Trays or Trivets

While modular devices often conjure up the images of complex or highly technical designs, these multi-functional wood cutting boards remind us that simple design can often bring the best solutions. Great for cooking and serving, one side of these American Sycamore board acts as a handy flat surface for chopping, while the other is great as a serving board for cheese, bread and meats. Finally, both the small and large designs can be used to serve hot dishes at a meal, acting as a barrier between the delicate tablecloth and the steaming pot or pan.

The designer, Pat Kim, specializes in wood, favoring simple and timeless designs over more busy or complex visuals.
