On a recent trip to Garde in LA (a must-stop on any design lover's list), I admired a line of chunky cutting boards made by The Wooden Palate, and discovered via the Huffington Post that Jennifer Aniston, Ringo Starr, and Cameron Diaz all own one. Ryan Silverman (he creates wood floor and interiors for Hollywood's elite) and Eileen O'Dea (a former cooking teacher turned wood worker) use reclaimed, recycled, and sustainably harvested North American wood for the creation of their cutting boards and other serving pieces, all meticulously fabricated in their LA studio.  Above: Wooden Palate's hand-carved American Black Walnut Serving Bowls ; the large, 21.5 inches long, is $350, and the small, 9 3/4 inches long, is $155. Above: Silverman and O'Dea use salt-air-cured wood salvaged from the Atlantic City boardwalk for their  Salt Cellar with Lid ; $55. Above: The 14-inch-round end-grain  White Oak Chopping Board  is comprised of dozens of pieces of milled wood, glued together and then sanded and oiled; $350.   Above: The Three-Bowl Dip Board in Fumed Oak , $350, is ideal for serving bread and cheese alongside dips, herbs, and nuts.
