One of our most popular wood species for live edge charcuterie boards is Ambrosia Maple. The beauty of this wood is no two pieces are ever the same. How does this wood get its unique characteristics? It’s actually a fungal discolouration caused by boring ambrosia beetles. Don’t worry though, all of our wood has been properly kiln dried so those little bugs are long gone! This unique wood is a joy to work with and also engraves nicely. It’s a popular wood choice for those wanting to customize their cutting board with a logo or saying. The dark contrast of the laser works nicely with the light wood. We also offer Ambrosia Maple in wood slabs for larger projects and thicker surfaced lumber for furniture building.
It is very common for live edge charcuterie boards to have cracks or splits, especially on a wood like Olivewood. Boards with these characteristics are actually quite desirable. You can either fill the voids with coloured epoxy or combine clear epoxy with coffee grounds for a more natural aesthetic. P-Tec, which is a wood repair paste, is also an excellent option to stabilize these voids.
Speaking of colour, we have seen some incredible charcuterie boards incorporating coloured epoxy. A very trending concept is a river design. This concept is achieved by joining two boards with a space in between to create a river effect. We even carry River Table Sets to save you the trouble of cutting your own.
We carry two high quality brands of epoxy: Chill and EcoPoxy and either brand would work perfectly. Both brands carry dozens of different colours as well. Pour a complimentary or contrasting colour and you’ll soon have a unique serving board.
Some of our woods are actually naturally food safe such as Maple and Olivewood. When using any of our other woods to create a cutting board, adding a food safe finish to your charcuterie board is always a good idea. We recommend our locally made Honey Bee’s Natural Wood Cream which is a mixture of pure beeswax and 100% food grade mineral oil.
Particularly around the holidays, cutting boards and cheese boards are one of the most popular projects that our customers build. This is a great project for novice woodworkers as no power tools are required. No promises that you won’t get addicted to this wonderful hobby!
