Welcome To

Gypsy Wagon Wares

Here at Gypsy Wagon Wares, we proudly carry a large selection of unique designed cutting boards. Each board is carefully crafted from Ozark natural hardwoods; mainly red and white oak. This beautiful, rich medium is perfect for cutting boards because it's one of America's most durable woods and ideal for carving, cutting and serving food. Every board we design is handcrafted and finished with a hand-rubbed application of mineral oil which is nontoxic, odorless and tasteless.

It's through a creative eye and love of art that we design these natural, riveting cutting boards that are both functional and aesthetically pleasing. Our artistic pursuit is elevating the everyday items that are often times overlooked. And with a plethora of designs, you'll be afforded a multitude of options. Pick your favorite or add several to your cutting board selection. Our options include everything from animal-shaped cutting boards to fruit shapes and even state-shaped cutting boards.
