Soundview Millworks

And while we're talking about weddings I can't pass up sharing my all time favorite gift to give for weddings, showers and engagement parties - a monogrammed cutting board from Soundview Millworks. Started by local craftsman Grant Tankoos in 2008, SVM creates beautiful nautically-inspired cutting boards out of mahogany and maple wood. With an ever expanding number of styles, there are tons of options to choose from and every style can be personalized with one of their stock images or almost anything you send Grants way! I've seen monograms, logos, dates and even whole wedding invitations engraved on his boards! Below are some gifts that Grant created for me last summer, I was so happy with how each one turned out and I know the recipients will enjoy them for years to come. And it's such a nice added touch to give a gift from a local company!

Add a couples wedding logo,

their favorite vacation destination,

or the date and location of their wedding!

Head over to to check out all the available styles - my dad takes credit for this new board when he asked Grant to recreate my mom's favorite old cutting board! Now with an online store it's even easier to order but you can still contact Grant at 843.324.5186 or Also be sure to "like" them on facebook to receive updates on new products and events!
