Make this chunky bread or cheese board for yourself or as a gift for a friend – it’s an easy project and costs only your time
- Drill with 32 mm and 20 mm wood drill bits
- Offcut piece of hardwood timber about 15 x 40 x 3cm
- Olive oil
Use the pencil, ruler and compass to draw the design of the handle on one end of the timber.
Clamp the timber to your work surface with G-clamps. Drill a hole in the centre of the handle design with the 32 mm drill bit.
Use the 20 mm drill bit to drill holes to form the curves at the sides of the handle.
Use the jigsaw to cut out the rest of the handle.
Sand all the surfaces with sandpaper until smooth.
Rub the entire board with olive oil. You could make several of these boards and use them as serving platters for nibbles.
Top Tip: Allow the oil to oxidise for 24 hours before using the board.
