Hey Lumberjocks,
Just wanted to post a recent project, a charcuterie board. Typically charcuterie boards a designed for serving the meats, cheeses, veggies and dips vs cutting and preparing food on, so lightweight and handles were in order. This one is Walnut 18” diameter and ended up being slightly thinner than 3/4”. I planed and joined six pieces of Walnut and used my circle jig on my bandsaw to get the shape. Quarter inch round over bit on top and bottom edges. I added some rustic metal handles and mounted it on a Lazy Susan for ease of serving on the buffet line. My finish for all food service items two coats of Mineral Oil followed by Mineral Oil and bees wax melted to a runny slurry. Apply generously. The blue is my epoxy fill on some small cracks- they just add character. All the wood for this project came from the scrap pile.
Thanks for checking out the charcuterie board.

The board looks almost as good as the food. Well maybe as good as. Nice work.

I like the larger size of that board and the lazy susan attachment. Seems perfect for entertaining. Nicely done.

Have your say...
