This one is for Sharon-
Home made bread and Herbed Olive Oil for dipping!
When Ellen posted her Oil and Bread Boards, I knew these were going to be my next set of Christmas gifts.
Ellen, I hope they meet with your approval.
These are made from Maple, Walnut, Cherry, Sapele and some Purple Heart. They are similar in size to Ellen’s boards (16” to 20” long and 5” to 6” wide) and about 3/8” thick. I opted to make the handles. The white posts are from Hobby Lobby- bought all they had and need some more to finish the remaining 8 boards. The posts are actually necklace “beads” and are captured with a 2 1/4”- 6×32 flat head machine screw. The ramekins are from Pier One Imports. They sit in a 1/8” deep recess. I put clear rubber “Bumpers” on the bottom to act as non-slip feet. The finish is pure mineral oil.
Mimi said she will make marinara sauce and we will bake baguettes to complete the gifts.
As always- comments and criticisms are always welcome.
