Our Story

"Serenity Boards had its humble beginnings. Just me, a table saw, and an age-old challenge—the art and craft of woodworking."

"Serenity Boards had its humble beginnings. Just me, a table saw, and an age-old challenge—the art and craft of woodworking."

 Daniel Sheimo never set out to create the most functional and elegant cutting board. He's not a classically trained woodworker or graduate of a college of the arts. It was in Illinois that he found the two loves of his life: his children and the delicate art of woodworking. And it's been those very two Godsends that inspired Serenity Boards as we know it.

 

 Daniel spent 20 years in the construction field working with wood. During that time, he had the opportunity to see alot of different techniques used, honing his taste and talent for woodworking perfection. As he soaked up the styles and practices, Daniel's dream of de-regionalizing wooden cutting boards was born.

"This was never supposed to be a discovery of a new design of cutting boards. My definition of helping meant doing what felt most natural when comfort was in order—saving time in the kitchen."

Serenity Boards began with the launch of custom engraved cutting boards in 2013, when Daniel started selling at a local craft show. This one event resulted in a passion for supporting the love for local artist to bring the community custom hand-made products, and a few years later, building an assortment of various wood projects for craft shows just wouldn't cut it anymore.  

 

After trials, tribulations, and a whole lot of sawdust and wood chips, we finally turned that dream into a reality in October of 2013. After selling every cutting board that Daniel brought with him to that first craft show...he has never looked back since.

 

Today we have the Serenity Collection available with other fine and beautiful wooden projects, with continued expansion of furnishings and home decor. Most importantly, the love to support local artist remains our foundation and focus, as the quote states - chop your own wood and, it will warm you twice.

FUN FACT:

Why Serenity Boards? In short, it represents all of my children and what they bring to me. But they also would appreciate the serendipitous double meaning with The Serenity Prayer, God grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change; courage to change the things I can; and wisdom to know the difference. Now you know!
