Our Story

Dragonfly Wood Arts products are handmade of professionally harvested woods from around New England and North America and exotic woods from around the world. All items are handcrafted and finished in historic Hardwick, Massachusetts.

The beauty of natural wood lies in that no two trees are identical. Variations in color and grain are naturally occurring characteristics of wood and are enhanced by the application of food-safe sealers. These characteristics add to the overall charm of finished lumber. Beeswax, food-safe mineral oil, or both are used to improve our cutting boards, charcuterie boards, and cheese boards. Conditioning of the wood may be needed from time to time by using food-safe mineral oil or beeswax.

Pride is taken to personalize each order, and additional options include family initial, family initial within a monogram, family last name, family last name within a wreath. First names of a couple, first names of a couple within a wreath, latitude and longitude location of a home or special place in the world, company name, and MORE!

Items are not dishwasher safe. Warm water and mild soap are recommended for cleaning both cutting boards and charcuterie boards.

Wood Species


Reddish-brown in color. Overall a very uniformly colored wood. Very similar in appearance and workability to mahogany. The wood displays a beautiful chatoyance. The grain will shift as your perspective changes. Occasional quilted, curly, and or mottled figures can be present. A significant upcharge is typical for figured material. Material is often sorted for “ribbon stripe,” which would consist of the quarter and rift sawn boards, a moderate upcharge for the “ribbon” material. Sapele is pleasantly fragrant when cut.
