I had some leftover wood from my last two CB’s so I made two cheeseboards. The one on the left is made from Paduck, Black Walnut, Hard Maple, Yellowheart, Purpleheart, and Hickory. The handles are made from Purpleheart. It is 12 × 8×1-5/8 thk and sealed with salad bowl finish and finished with mineral oil/beeswax. The right one is 12 × 8×1-5/8 thk and made from Shedua, Hard Maple, Bubinga, European Beech, Macawood, Black Walnut, and Marblewood. The handles are made from Shedua. I sealed it with Salad Bowl finish and finished it with mineral oil/beeswax. I decided to use corks from beer bottles for feet. I counterbored about 3/4 deep and I use epoxy to hold them.

Grizz: I also questioned the cork feet, but thought a cheeseboard would not be used as much as a Cutting Board. Time will tell.

David: I am a microbrew connoisseur and the 22 oz bottles have the large head corks.
