Even though I am a very dedicated red meat and whiskey kind of guy, I love fresh raw veggies. These dipping boards are great for serving up everything together and looks much better than those cheap plastic trays everyone seems to have in their kitchen. The size is 7×20 x 7/8.
I sized the dip well to accommodate the standard store-bought veggie dip container. However, I also wanted to use the board for bread dipping oil. I searched for a month for a nice ceramic bowl to fit it, but the only one I found with the right dimension had “Made in China” stamped on it. This just didn’t seemed right, so I contracted with a pottery lady on Etsy to make up a bunch of bowls to fit the well. I sell these so she makes 20 at a time for me.
The first picture is figured maple and jatoba with walnut accents. The second is maple, cherry, and walnut with the dipping bowl. The third shows a store-bought dip container. I finish them with three coats of General Finishes salad bowl finish. They also have 1/2” rubber feet from Lee Valley to keep them from sliding around.
