The corkscrew, cheese slicer, bottle opener is a trade item for my blacksmith club meeting. The cutting board is what I added to make it worth taking. I’m not proud of this project but really don’t have time to redo it. To my suprise, a corkscrew is more difficult to forge than I had thought.
The cutting board is a figured piece I picked up buying out a gentleman’s shop. It is some species of oak but I’m not sure which one. Lots of flecking a nd steaked reflective areas that are difficult to see in the picture.
The cut out is for crackers, etc.
The metal finish is beeswax first then mineral oil last. The cutting board is mineral oil only.
I wish I had some small diameter spring steel for this project but mild will have to do. The cutting wire is small piano wire. It should hold up nicely if it is ever used.
Thanks for looking. I was reluctant to post yet another cutting board, especially single species.

Ah, but it is not a cutting board, but a complete snack and beverage access system. Super cool.
