DIY oversized cheese board

Cheese. Grapes. Strawberries. More cheese. Oh even MORE cheese. Anyone else’s kids crazy for cheese? Make this oversized DIY cheese board. It makes the perfect holiday gift or serving platter for your family to gather around. It can be really expensive to purchase one. But you can make this under $30.

This is a great beginner project. All you need is a hunk of wood from @homedepotcanada, your @ryobi_canada jigsaw and orbital sander. What would you serve on your platter? This post is sponsored by Ryobi Canada

What you need

  • Ryobi orbital sander and p220 sandpaper
  • Ryobi jigsaw
  • Ryobi wood scroll saw blade for jigsaw
  • Hardwood of choice in 36×8” (maple, walnut, etc). I choose birch as it was less expensive
  • Wood oil

Let’s get building

  1. Draw out the design of your handle on to the wood. You can also trace an existing handle on a board you may have at home
  2. Remove the battery and attach the scroll saw blade to your jigsaw. 
  3. Begin to cut out your handle. You may find after the first cut, you would like to refine the shape of the handle
  1. Sand the edges of the handle and the entire board with p220
  2. Wipe sawdust with a cloth and pour a generous amount of wood oil

5. Rub the wood oil. Follow the instructions for drying and sealing.

  1. Voila! Here is your easy DIY charcuterie board!

    This is so great and easy if you have the tools. Thank you for the info about the oil vs stain.
