Charcuterie Board Stock
Charcuterie boards are one of the best DIY ways to get into woodworking, epoxy pours or testing out new finishes.
All of our charcuterie board stock has been kiln dried and flattened. These slabs are very DIY friendly and require minimal sanding before applying a finish of your choice.
It’s recommended to remove the bark before you sand and finish your board. The bark will naturally want to fall off and the bark is difficult to clean after each use.

Our charcuterie board stock is perfect for anyone who is just starting out considering they have all been kiln dried, flattened and sanded to 80 Grit. We recommend filling any knots, voids or engravings with Ecopoxy Liquid Plastic (used for pours over 1/4" deep) or Ecopoxy UVpoxy (used for pours under a 1/4" deep) to allow for maximum use and ease of cleaning.
Standard Charcuterie Board Sizes:
Length: 15" - 24".
There is no limit on the size of the board. We have seen boards as long as 10 feet for chefs and catering companies.
Width: 6" - 12"
Once again, these are just guidelines and the size is ultimately up to you or your client.
Thickness: 3/4" - 1.25"
Things to Consider Before Building:
Does your piece have epoxy (river/ casted/ voids filled)
Are you incorporating inlays such as bowties?
Is your piece going to have a handle?
Will you be engraving something in it?
Live edge vs square edge?
What species of wood are you using (Walnut/ Ash/ Oak)?
Finishing? We recommend Walrus cutting board oil.
How to Finish:
Step 1) Sand your board up to 180 grit or 220 grit.
Step 2) Break all edges with the sand paper to eliminate potential slivers or sharp edges.
Step 3) Apply Walrus Oil Cutting Board Oil and let the oil soak in for 24 hours.
Step 4) Wipe off any excess oil after 24 hours.
