J.K. Adams for Milk Street Walnut Cutting eBoard



I partnered with Vermont company J.K. Adams to design this Milk Street Exclusive eBoard, with two key features designed for home cooks. One, a magnetic spot to hold a chef’s knife. With young kids, I don’t like knives just lying around. A knife-shaped groove in the board keeps blades lying flat, held in place with magnets, and you can turn the sharp edge safely inward, out of harm's way. Second, I wanted a spot to put my phone so I could see it while cooking — I often use the step-by-step photos and videos at the Milk Street website, and this would be the perfect spot, right on the cutting board itself. I could also take phone calls over speakerphone in a pinch. (The slot is long enough to also hold a tablet.) We went through several iterations to find the right angle and width for the slot, so it could accommodate phones in cases but wasn't so loose that the phone wobbled.

J.K. Adams suggested that the flip side be perfectly flat so you revert to a traditional cutting board design just by turning it over. A nice touch. For the material, we decided on a dark walnut wood with a gorgeous grain, durable enough to withstand denting without blunting or dulling your blades. The color will deepen beautifully with use, and with J.K. Adams' fine craftsmanship, the eBoard is built to last and bound to become a family heirloom.
