Hereof, can you Cricut a charcuterie board?
Subsequently, can you engrave a cutting board with a Cricut?
The Cricut Maker can cut basswood, balsa wood, as well as wood veneer. I recommend the basswood for this project as it is a stronger wood and works best for engraving. I am using the Cricut basswood as it comes in the best sheet sizes. You can also look for 1/16″ basswood at your local craft and hobby store.
Can you put Cricut vinyl on cutting board?
If you’re looking for a quick and easy gift a custom wood cutting board with vinyl doesn’t get much easier or make a bigger statement. I love putting vinyl on wood cutting boards and always make sure to use the hinge method to ensure the vinyl is straight and centered. Start by measuring your wood cutting board.
Use transfer paper to remove your vinyl from the backing and put it on your glass. You can tape a piece of graph paper or grid to the inside of your glass to help with alignment. You will also want to be sure to burnish well after application to ensure good adhesion.
Use clear transfer tape to move your design from the vinyl backing to the glass. Use the least amount of tape as possible. So cut the tape and the backing down as close to the vinyl as you can before peeling off the tape to transfer it to the glass.
Seal the Cutting Board
To protect your cutting board, you have to apply oil to seal the surface of the hardwood. Squeeze a liberal amount of butcher block wood oil or food-grade mineral oil onto a cloth rag. Apply the oil to all sides of the wood by rubbing thoroughly. Reapply until the wood stops absorbing the oil.
Your Vinyl Isn’t Sticking to Glass or Metal Surfaces
Solution: Clean your surface extremely well with some rubbing alcohol. I mean really put that elbow grease into it! The oils from manufacturing and your hands create a residue that vinyl just does not like.
