Raising a Cutting Board to Keep It Clean.

2 Materials
If you love clean counters but hate to move your cutting boards, this is the tip for you. It took about an hour and didn't cost a thing.
When my son in law worked at a granite store, he often got smaller pieces at cost. This was my first Christmas present from him. I love it. But as heavy as it is, it is often too heavy to move and clean the counters properly.
Crud gets underneath and gums up along the sides when I try and clean the counters.
So, I wanted to raise it. I used some E-6000 glue and some old wooden dominoes. I glued them together and to the bottom of the board.
I put 2 "legs" in the middle, too.
I then weighed them down with cans of food for about 3 hours.
The finished product is a cutting board I can clean under.
I even have a special lid that I can slip under to scrape things of into. This has been a great help as I hate sticky or dirty counters!!
Suggested materials:
  • E-6000 glue   (Had it at home.)
  • Wooden dominoes   (In my craft room.)

    You are welcome. I find that having the shoe box lid underneath has helps so much!! Kind of like the grease catchers under the little grills!!
