There's a Guide to the Solar System Etched Into This Cutting Board

Illustration for article titled Theres a Guide to the Solar System Etched Into This Cutting Board

If you're the type who likes to learn something new every day, this wonderful custom bamboo cutting board from Etsy seller Elysium Woodworks will teach you the basics of our solar system while you hack away at vegetables during dinner prep.


Once the intricate pattern on this wooden cutting board has been engraved—including the planets, their distances from the sun, orbital periods, and all their moons—it's sealed with food-grade mineral oil and beeswax to protect the finish. At $45 you might be hesitant of actually using it for meal prep, but the underside of the board is left plain for cutting purposes, while the decorated top can be preserved for serving, or just used as kitchen decor.

Nice, but not even close to scale. So ten points for kitchen ware, maybe three points for astronomy.
