    Quick cheese boards

    We're having a "Secret Santa" gift exchange at the office, so I decided to make a quick and simple cheese/serving board from the cutoff bin. We also needed something else for a gift bag we're giving to "Snow Plow Neighbor" who so thoughtfully clears our driveway, so I just made the glue up a bit longer. I finished shaping and sanding them on Saturday and got the first coat of flax oil on them:



    The curvy one is my design, while The Wife® preferred a more rectilinear form. Wide angle distortion makes the 6" x 9" curved board look longer than it actually is. The straight board is the longer of the two at 6" x 11½"...which would have been 12" if I hadn't bobbled a router pass.

    Wood species used: cherry (primary), curly maple (secondary), with accents of walnut and padauk.

    Very nice, Brett. I'm partial to that "thin line" style of cutting board embellishment. I've made quite a few using that approach.

    Those are very nice. Recipient will surely enjoy using them. Are they big enough to use to cut up moose?

    Thanks everyone. They're not big enough to dress out a moose but you could serve a little moose sausage on them.

    The striping on those boards really makes them stand out from others. Great idea and good job.
