The Making of a Charcuterie Board

The Making of a Charcuterie Board

I'm not one of those people climbing the walls to get out of the house.  In fact, I really like being here and having time to do things like paint rooms, clean out closets, and most importantly - watch YouTube videos.  That is exactly how this all happened.  I was watching someone on YouTube make charcuterie boards (cutting boards, bread boards, cheese boards, serving boards - whatever you want to call them).  My husband came through and I asked if he thought he could make one.  Not only did he think he could, but he also had some old walnut and other boards that he thought would work great.  As luck would have it, he was on vacation this week ( he is a pharmacist and has to work regardless of coronavirus)  and it rained every day but one. He couldn't do some of the things he had planned so he spent some time in the garage working on boards. They turned out absolutely beautiful.  They are so smooth and have so much character. The wood makes each one unique and you never know what you have until it goes through the planer and the true woodgrain is revealed! Best of all no two will ever be alike!

I hope you enjoy the video and the process that it takes to make a charcuterie board. They are truly works of art and completely handcrafted!  They are available on our website and will be coming to The Perfect Piece in Cary, NC and Wolf Hills Antiques in Abingdon, VA when we open back up!
