How an Inexpensive Christmas Gift turned into a successful business!
The idea of engraved cutting boards came to Belinda and Tony after they both became unemployed during the recession of 2009-2010. While looking for an affordable Christmas gift for family and friends, Belinda looked at a cutting board and thought how perfect would it be to enhance a wood cutting board with personalized engraving? And Belinda wasn't the only one who loved this idea: from the very first engraved board listed online, they were a hit! Everyone loved the practical, elegant, personalized cutting boards for their home, gifts, or corporate events.
Belinda and Tony decided to partner with a local wood mill to make them. When the business grew beyond what their modest workshop could bear, the two partners decided it was time to move closer to the production site. This was the beginning of a productive and rewarding relationship, as Tony and Belinda were now able to accommodate the large number of orders they were receiving. Things were really taking off, and TaylorCrafts continued to expand as the beautiful boards grew increasingly popular.
We opened our current shop in 2010 on Etsy and quickly expanded to a 3,000 ft space; partnering with local wood mills and local wood workers to source our quality materials. As proud local employers in Salt Lake City, we put heart and soul into each piece that we craft.
We're thrilled to bring you the heartfelt gifts that you need for your next occasion or event!
