This is a new version of the leaf charcuterie board. The first version was a little too small, so I made this one a couple inches wider. I also aligned the grain better, and exchanged the osage wood for sapele which I think will age better. It will not fade in color, and incredibly beautiful. I used the same finish of mineral oil and bees wax.

In my blandness I had to look up what a charcuterie board was. So you offered a chance for me to educate myself. The design is elegantly beautiful. The shape with the mahogany and walnut (?) is a nice contrast. The divider line accentuates the contrast. The two woods finished well too. Thanks for posting.

Fine work and finish. What’s the lighter wood on the left mahogany, and wood in the center?

Are you a Charcuterie?
