Well, this was a new one on me!

I received a request to make an “appetizer board”. Never heard of one. Apparently, for a party, you load it up with finger food and place it in the center of the table.

Made from maple, walnut and cherry. Breadboard ends with recessed finger holds. Small rubber feet set back from the corners. 14” wide by 48” long. Finished with mineral oil and beeswax.

At our house an appetizer is whatever is closest to the front when you open the refrigerator door.

Nicely done Lew, and I like the use of the dowels. I assume that you finished off the appetizers that were supposed to be in the photos??? ;)

Beautiful wood combination. I like the way you joined them together at edges with dovels.

Now that’s the size we need.People come over and finish off those goodies before I get a chance to grab one. Nice job.

Well Lew you are updating our wish list with one more item.

Great looking board for finger food.

Yup, it’s a finger food board, and now I know what they are as well. Looks pretty slick. It also looks like it would carry my lunch into my office where I tend to eat it at my desk….

Great work lew.
I like how you arranged the different species of wood to get a cool looking combination.
The fit & finish showcase your care and style of fine craftsmanship too.

And, I’m with you regarding “appetizers” at our house.

Looks like a great tool for serving lots of food! Well-made and well-designed, for sure.

And in the back of my head, I can hear my wife asking “But how the f$&% am I supposed to fit that in the sink to wash it once it’s been used?”

Each time I look at the picture my eyes search for the legs for this “appetizer board”! I will get used to it, real nice job Lew.
