28-inch Charcuterie Board

We bought this giant board (28-inches in diameter with a 2-inch lip) at Pier 1 last fall here in Bend, Oregon. It’s solid wood and SUPER heavy (just warning you). 

This board is called: Courtland Hand-Carved Ash Gray Round Tray. Here it is in gray (click the affiliate link to buy). Rememember it says it is not food safe, so you can use parchment paper or season it like we did. 

Buy the same board a little smaller – Courtland Ash Small Tray – 18 inches!

Here’s an 18-inch wine barrel wood board or a 24-inch hammered large round tray or a 26-inch stainless steel serving platter that you may also like! Check out the weight on these boards.

How to season a Charcuterie 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.

We used this butcher block and cutting board oil conditioner after we lightly sanded the board down.

Or, lay down parchment paper! Easy peasy!

Feeding a crowd for game day?

Sliders are the no-stress way to keep everyone happy. Just be sure to make an extra batch, which is why I love my “board” idea!
