Here are two cheese and cracker board designs I recently did

The long one is a concept I got from wood magazine but did not like the design they did. I came up with my own, but liked their concept of the two end pieces to place the cheese. The second board I came up with out the blue and added some inlay and contrasting plugs of different diameter. I have since then created numerous other designs. I used a template and a bowl bit in my router to make the recess for the cheese or the crackers to be placed

Hi Paul
Yes I made my own template. I used 3/4 inch mdf
I made the designs by using 1×1 inch grid square paper and a compass so everything would be equal. Once I had my design intransfered it to the mdf and cut out on bandsaw.
The spacing for the cracker space is 2 inches. This was because I wanted the space to accept a 2 inch wide bowl sanding pad in my drill press.

Let me know if have any other questions. Tks Greg
