Solar System Diagram Cutting Board ($45)

Prepare for your holiday feast in geeky style with the Solar System Diagram Cutting Board from Elysium Woodworks. This engraved wooden cutting board features a mini astronomy lesson, including planet names, their distances from the sun and their orbital periods, as well as pictographic representations of moons and a few asteroids and Kuiper belt objects. For a limited time, science-fiction lovers can choose to add a space whale out near Pluto.
