Here’s a very simple cherry serving board I put together for my wife out of some remnants that I had lying around.

I ended up with the center strip of inlaid walnut in between two thinner strips of curly maple.

The board measures approx 7” by 20”, and was finished with a mix of mineral oil and beeswax that I read about in a FWW article.

I cut the small hole in the top corner with a forstner bit so that the board can be hung on the wall from a peg in the kitchen.

I’m currently in the middle of refacing my existing kitchen cabinets with shaker doors and drawer fronts, and I’m also building a big pantry cabinet to go along with the existing cabinets. This board is sort of a small gift to celebrate the new (and hopefully, soon finished!) kitchen project, although I’ve found that working around small children at least triples any estimate of time to completion that I’ve figured :-)

Thanks for looking.

Nice! I like the figure in the cherry. I always refer to that as “rustic cherry”.

Nicely done.
Good luck on the kitchen update.

Hmmm….. I must have been thinking out loud….
A serving board you say….
I am planning to make several serving boards, in the near future.
To be used by my buddy “The Chef”, in his catering business.

Thanks guys…yeah, the cherry has a lot of character to it. It didn’t look like much, but when that finish went on it really popped..

The kitchen update is a slow process. I don’t have the time to build all of the doors for the update so I outsourced those, but I’m currently trying to finish up the 8ft tall by 3 ft pantry, which has been enough for me to take on!!!

Thanks for the welcome…

Have your say...
