We love spending time in the kitchen, especially when we're cooking some of our favourite meals. It doesn't matter what meal we'll be creating, breakfast, lunch, dinner and even dessert, we'll more than likely be utilising a chopping board.
One of our favourite styles of chopping board is a wooden chopping board, even more so when they are ocean, nautical themed and remind us of spending time on the coast.
Cutting boards come in all shapes, sizes and materials, made with plastic, glass and in this article, wood. Even different woods are used, from bamboo, to acacia and then other woods, some more sustainable than others. At the end of the day, it's up to you which wood you prefer the look of and which would suit your kitchen style.
Below we have nautical cutting boards which have handles so are more practical and perfect for any preparation and serving you would like to do.
Comparisons of Mermaid Ocean Wooden Chopping Boards
This resin based acacia wood cutting board is just stunning, the blue and ocean colour resin melts from the handle right on to the main cutting board section.
This is ranked as number 1 because it's large, it has a handle which we always find practical and is just beautiful. We think it would look great in any home and nautical kitchen.
The resin is like an ocean washing up on to a sandy beach and shoreline on a summers day, it's positive and makes us smile. When we have a cheese night and we lay cheeses out, our guest just love it.
What we really like about this chopping board is that if you're looking for a gift for an ocean lover and future mermaid, we highly recommend this nautical cutting board.
At number two is the bamboo whale tail, one of our favourite woods for kitchen and home pieces. The bamboo is a very sustainable resource as it grows so quickly.
If you love whales, then the bamboo cutting board is a great addition to any home and kitchen.
This is also another large cutting board and can be hung on its handle it has just like the resin one, so very practical too.
The final two chopping boards have other sealife themes, with a clam, also known as a scallop and a mermaid design which even comes with cheese utensils.
Both are made with renewable woods, the prior being a rubber wood.

This is a review of the Resinat Ocean Wood Chopping Board
This beautiful ocean theme chopping board is made from Acacia wood and created in an epoxy resin art studio in Australia.
It has quite a wonderful grain to it and is particularly durable. The shape of chopping board is curvaceous yet bold with a lovely grab handle.
The flowing colours of blue, green and white create the images of the sea touching the edges of the chopping board. Inspired by the Australian waters as they approach the sand.
The resin was created using a free flowing method to create this effect. Once poured the resin is heated with a blow touch to spread the colours creating a unique pattern where no two chopping boards are quite the same. .
This makes a wonderful gift as not only does it look stunning with the added resin of flowing water it comes in a beautiful gift box.
To keep it in good condition you'll need to hand wash the board with warm soapy water, making sure not to use hot water on the resin. The board should be re-oiled with coconut oil every few months to prevent drying out.

This is one stunning, professional looking cutting board that brings the ocean right to the dinner table!
This is a review of the Totally Bamboo Whale Tail Chopping Board
Made from bamboo this Whale Tail Chopping board from Totally Bamboo is functional yet decorative. This chopping board is shaped symmetrically like a tail of a whale with a middle stripe and hole at the top so it can be hung up.
The very use of bamboo for chopping boards is also much more environmentally friendly as it is a renewable resource that grows quickly without the need for artificial irrigation or pesticides. It measures 10 and a half inches by 14 and a half inches which is great size for cutting and preparing food on either side of the whale tail.
This wonderfully shaped chopping board is also particularly decorative, making it a wonderful serving platter as well as a cutting board. In fact you could even add extra decoration yourself if your a pyrography artist.
To clean this chopping board, don't submerge in water but simply hand wash or wipe with a damp cloth and air dry.
This is a durable well made chopping board. To be able to keep this as a lovely wall decor as well I would just cut on one side so cutting marks are only seen on one side and it will last longer whilst keeping its charm and good finish.
- Beautiful design
- Well made and crafted
- Envrionmentally friendly
- Able to hang up on the wall
- Can be used as a serving platter
- Plenty of space for chopping and preparing food
- Needs a little care to keep it looking good
- Can't be washed in dishwasher
Beautiful whale tail design chopping board that also poses as a wall decoration too!

This is a review of the PICNIC TIME Little Mermaid Princess Chopping Board
This Disney Princess Little Mermaid Board by Picnic Time is perfect for use as a chopping board or cheese board. The board is made from a beautiful acacia wood with a circular 7.5 inches in diameter, so one of the smallest we have reviewed.
To the centre of the board is a beautiful Little Mermaid design laser engraved into the board with swirls of the ocean with her. Circled to the outer rim of the board is a moat indent that prevents brine from cheeses or juice from vegetables running of the board.
This is also no ordinary board and underneath you will find three cheese tools made from stainless steel with wooden handles, each handle has a sea creature design, the particular tools are a hard cheese knife, chisel knife for hard crumbly cheese, and cheese fork.
Each hidden away and packed away neatly underneath the board. This is a quite a small chopping board/cheese board which although means you cannot pack alot of items on but allows you to stow away easily.
- Well made
- Comes with three cheese tools with sea creatures on
- Carved moat around board helps prevent brine/juice run off
- Great gift for a little mermaid fan
- Easy to stow away
- Small in size
This is a board for the Disney fans, the cheese fans and the mermaid fans, If you know someone who loves all three this is a winning gift!
