Boards I’ve used in the past

For reference, the boards I’ve used in The Big Board posts (round boards) were these sizes:

28 inch, 24 inch, and 18 inch.

I also use a 12 x 48 inch rectangular board with I love. Stay tuned … we may be adding an Epic Rectangular Charcuterie Board to the cart!

But my new sizes will be 20 inch and 26 inch, with more to come!

For me, personally, a “lip” is the secret to the best charcuterie or dinner board, because the food does not fall off.

How to care for The Big Board

If a wood board says it “not food safe,” you can lightly sand it down with sand paper, and rub down with beeswax and mineral oil.

Follow along how to season a charcuterie board for the details, but we used this butcher block and cutting board oil conditioner after we lightly sanded the board down.

For my board, follow these instructions:

Wood is an incredible natural material that is naturally antimicrobial, and expands and contracts with moisture and humidity. Regular regimented care of this product will protect it for years to come.

Hand wash with warm, soapy water after each use and dry thoroughly with a towel—fully drying is very important. Never soak or submerge in water, run in a dishwasher, or use in a microwave. Placing hot pots or pans on your board can result in a lasting burn mark. Store flat when possible to avoid warping.

Wood type of The Big Board

American Maple is a forgiving hardwood—and has the ability to withstand a lifetime of use. Grain variation is to be expected in your product.

Friends, I just love how my boards are lightweight and FOOD SAFE!

Thanks for your support!

Everyone loves a charcuterie board, cheese board, or a dinner board.

Bringing families and people together during these times to enjoy a meal together is essential, nutritious, and soulful!

Happy hosting!
