From cutting boards to dining tables

Radek MARA

Owner & Creator

Our products are hand-made in our studio in the Dublin Mountains. From a piece of tree to the finished product.

Primitive Boards started officially in 2018 by making unique cutting boards and charcuterie boards. That allowed me to gain experience and a unique style in the beautiful craft of woodworking. That same style and painstaking manufacturing process are now imprinted into everything I make. From serving platters to dining tables.

Why Primitive Boards? Primitiv was my childhood nickname given by my friends.  We spent all our free time in the nearby forest in the Czech Republic where I grew up. There we were carving simple objects from wood while fishing and watching wildlife.  30 years later I returned to woodworking to re-discover my childhood creativity  & channel it into unique products for your home.
