In my small urban kitchen, everything goes up on the wall: colanders, spoons, spatulas, and now cutting boards. In fact, I’ve had to pass up hand-me-down John Boos cutting boards because they were too wide, too heavy, and well, you can’t hang them all the wall. As a footnote to our previous post on Display-Worthy Cutting Boards, here are 10 boards, all with cutout holes for hanging.

Above: Canadian product designer Geoffrey Lilge’s the Hole Slab Boards are made from FSC-certified North American walnut. Shown here on a restaurant wall are the double-handled Culina Tray ($260 CAD), the XL Ring Board ($250 CAD), the Hole Slab Long Board ($140 CAD), and the Hole Slab Pico Board ($140 CAD), all available from Lilge’s company OnOurTable. For more, see Design Sleuth: Charcuterie Boards at Luce in Portland, Oregon.

Above: From Canvas, the Large Handmade Holey Cutting Board has two holes on either end and is made in the US by Amish woodworkers using a variety of hardwoods (cherry, maple, oak, and walnut); $72 each.

Above: From Joshua Vogel of Blackcreek Mercantile & Trading Co., the Large Cutting Board with Handle is made of sugar maple and has a medium-size hole in the handle for hanging on the wall; $210 at March.
