    Faith G.

    "I purchased two cutting boards at a missions night for my church that Teen Challenge came to present at. I own the Fenway and the Mystic. The most special part about owning the boards is being able to host and welcome my loved ones! I pile on all my favorite cheeses, crackers, and fruit! They are that extra special touch to add warmth to the table to enjoy time together with people I dearly love to help them feel special when they visit! 
    The craftsmanship of them is executed with such excellence and purchasing them helps support a profoundly impactful Christ-centered recovery ministry! Thank you Teen Challenge for sharing your creativity! Go buy one today for every person you know! They also make amazing wedding and or housewarming gifts!!!"

    Stephanie D.

    "The board I have is so smooth, well made, and very colorful. You can tell that it was hand crafted with a lot of care and effort. I use mine mostly as a charcuterie board to serve guests, but it can also be used as a cutting board too. My wood board was given to me as a house warming gift so it’s a great gift idea for a friend, but most importantly you get to support an amazing mission, so I got a second one myself. I would definitely recommend buying your own!”

    "The first cutting board that we purchased from the Carpenters Shop is the Rockland, we love it so much that we started a collection.  The quality of the cutting board is on full display when preparing food, and the beauty of when being used to serve food.  We love being able to share that God is using the men in the program to create."

    "By far, the Princeton board is my favorite board to use for charcuterie purposes! Since getting this board about a year ago, every holiday, every get together, our at-home date nights, or even just a family movie night with our children, food displays have taken on a whole new fun twist! Besides being a beautiful board, the grooves make it easy to prevent food from just falling off the sides. Hands down, you will want 2 of these!"

    Elizabeth R.

    "My daughter who works for Adult and Teen Challenge Rhode Island gave me a cutting board for Christmas. She says it's called Newport. I am 93 years old and I often just eat little snack foods. The cutting board she gave me is small and fits right in my lap while I watch my daytime television shows. It's also easy for me to wash. It's a beautiful cutting board and it's from a beautiful program."

  • The Carpenter's Shop

    Nanci M.

    "I received a beautiful 18x6 cutting board.  This size is perfect for serving cheese & crackers. The craftsmanship is wonderful & the color combinations of purples, brown & tan is truly stunning. It is a cutting board that can take center stage every time it's used. When not in use, I love to display it!"
