lots of nice examples on Pinterest ~ but you will have to make your own plans.
or, choose an example of the style you like, then come ask for plans of that style.

Someone posted this link here long ago. I saved it, but have never gotten around to ordering anything. They appear to have pretty much everything related to cutting the cheese.

Greg – many members here have programs such as SketchUp
and other types of design software that may be able to assist you.
but basically, you may have to resort to your own design skills.
good plans are very hard to find on Pinterest – just the photos of finished projects.

that link I posted above does not go to the page that I saw and referred to:
go to Pinterest and search for “Cheese Board Set” and many fine examples to choose from.

Thanks John
I have a design I want to do. The part I am struggling with is how the inserts under the board pivot in and out. Also a template on how to make the inserts for the knives etc. tks

I’m planning one, too. I will make a template for the tools and cut them out with a router. The one I’ll make is square with a handle…all one piece… the top will swivel on a dowel in the handle.

Hey gene
If you use a dowel for the swivel are you gluing the dowel to the swivel part or the top part? Reason I ask is how would you keep in the place the whole item so when you pick it up the swivel part does separate itself from the cutting board tks

I would probably go with something like this vs a pivot style.
