Each of these stunning, one-of-a-kind olive wood cutting boards are uniquely handcrafted and carved out of a single piece of wood from trees grown in the land of Israel. These natural works of art are as beautiful as they are functional—as cutting boards or as cheese or bread serving boards.
These unique cutting boards are exclusively made for My Olive Tree and make beautiful one-of-a-kind gifts for anyone who appreciates the beauty of God’s creation.
Each board is uniquely created by artisans in Israel and will vary in size and appearance. The average dimensions are approximately 14” long x 9” wide x 1.5” high.
These cutting boards come hand rubbed with olive oil and should periodically be hand-rubbed with olive oil to preserve their unique quality and appearance.
These uniquely handcrafted olive wood cutting boards are a natural work of art that are as beautiful as they are functional. Each board is handcrafted and carved from a solid piece of olive wood from trees grown in the land of Israel.
The Qiesieh family, the artisans who make these beautifully handcrafted cutting boards as a way to provide for themselves, own souvenir shops in both Bethlehem and Jerusalem. For many years they have made their living crafting olive wood items such as figurines and nativity scenes for tourists.However, when the coronavirus hit in 2020, tourism stopped and so did sales in their shops.
Since this time the Qiesiehs barely had enough food to fill their stomachs, so they were forced to barter their beautiful olive wood for meat.
My Olive Tree heard about their plight and reached out to help. George and Elijah, the two Qiesieh brothers who own their souvenir shops and do all of the woodworking themselves, were thrilled when we asked them to create these unique, one-of-a-kind, olive wood cutting boards, exclusively made for the My Olive Tree online store.
Your purchase of every cutting board helps the Qiesieh family in Israel overcome financial needs in this difficult time by providing the extra income necessary to put food on their table.
