Fab Slabs Cutting Boards: Naturally Antibacterial (GREAT gift idea too!)
I was recently introduced to these awesome Fab Slabs cutting boards and I can’t say enough good things about them. We use cutting boards a LOT around here.
FabSlabs is a family owned and operated business which specializing in making these amazing cutting boards that happen to come from Australia – 100% made in Australia, in fact.
Made from Camphor Laurel trees, this woods is naturally and permanently antibacterial, how crazy is that!?
As you can see from the photos, these boards are gorgeous! I used them to create some fun cheese boards for our football game viewing party last weekend and I love how they turned out!
100% food safe, the science behind these boards is actually quite fascinating. Through a drying process, along with the natural oils in this wood, these boards have a natural and ever lasting antibacterial quality that means that you can use them for a wide variety of things.
How to Make a Cheese Board?
Wondering how to make a cheese board? It’s SO easy!
I started making them last year and now, I feel like I throw them together every time we have a family movie night or have company over, it’s SO easy!
You can literally use items that you have on hand, or make a quick trip to the grocery store.
The key to making a great cheese board is to have a lot of color, and a lot of variety. I try to find fruits and veggies that are easily picked up and I try to avoid fruits and veggies that are too moist or runny.
Favorite items for making cheeseboards include:
A variety of cherry sized tomatoes – get different colors if you can
Salami and meat snacks
Dried fruits like cranberries, apricots and dates
Peppers, whole or sliced
Strawberries, blueberries (sometimes I will put these in a dish if they are not firm)
Grapes – grab two different colors if you can
Cheese – you can never have enough cheese on a cheese board!
Fab Slabs Make Great Gifts!
These Fab Slab cutting boards also make great gifts! I love that they are a practical item, that is also so elegant and can actually become part of your decor.
Each piece is so unique and this is a gift that will definitely stand out. They are such high quality boards and have a very elegant yet rustic look and feel. They also smell amazing, that’s due to the natural oils from the Camphor Laurel.

These would make a wonderful gift and if you are looking for unique Valentine’s Day ideas, maybe considering making a cheese board for your sweetheart using the Fab Slab Heart Board shown above!
I’m always sharing my favorite things and these cutting boards are definitely one of them! These are an item that will last for years and years to come and if you properly maintain them (instructions will come with your board) they just get better and better with time. They are actually designed to stand up to the test of time and stay in beautiful condition ever after extended usage.
I am leaving mine out for decor and love that I can quickly grab it to help cut up food for dinner, or load it up with snacks until dinner is served.
