2017 Update: We no longer have a storefront in Chicago or offer these handcrafted spice racks and cutting boards. We’re 100% online and based out of Louisville Kentucky now. We highly recommend you contact the artists mentioned below to inquire about custom woodwork.

We are now offering handcrafted hardwood spice racks and cutting boards at our retail shop and soon on our online store.  Both the racks and the boards are produced locally in Chicago and were constructed with reclaimed wood.

The spice racks were designed by Rob Christopher and were built with 200 year old reclaimed barn wood.  We are excited to be working with Rob, as he brings a creative vision and high level of old world craftsmanship to our shop.  We will be working together to bring a variety of custom functional wood work to our customers.

The cutting boards were a collaboration project between Pinch Spice Market and Attrill Woodworking.  Back in July we went down to a friends farm in Indiana to mill an old log of white oak that had fallen in a storm years ago.  We also had the opportunity to bring back some scrap black walnut.  We have begun to produce hardwood cutting boards in small batches.  These boards are beyond description and are like nothing available at your local megamart or online retailer.  We will also be producing handmade pepper and salt mills in the coming months.

Come on over to our humble little spice shop and check them out.  You will not be disappointed. We are also capable of making custom racks and boards so feel free to inquire about your dream spice rack or the most amazing cutting board you ever imagined.
