Charcuterie Dish

Furnished content.
(from Lumberjocks.com)


Charcuterie DishThis dish was from a 1 1/4” thick slab of pistachio that was cut from a tree from California that was grafted about 70 yr ago. So the tree might be 100 yrs old or more.The light colored wood is the root stock and the dark brown/black wood is the latest tree stock from the graft. The slab was about 5 ft long and very dry and cracked everywhere. I made 4 long pieces from the sides of the tree stock and threw the center away but saved this end to make this dish. It took a lot of filling with black epoxy at every step of the way.This tells what to put on a charcuterie board/ tray/dish: https://foodiesfamily.com/what-to-put-on-a-charcuterie-board/.It finished at 14 5/8” diameter and 7/8” thick The bottom is about 3/8” thick. It is finished with Danish oil and buffed and waxed.Cheers, Jim

Hope Chest

Furnished content.
(from Lumberjocks.com)


Hope ChestA lady from our church asked if I could make a Hope Chest for her daughter. This is what I came up with.
I made up the panels with a shiplap, about 3/8 thick. Then I made the framework to fit the panels. It ended up about 20×20x40.
All curly maple, just a lot of different boards with different colors.
I hope she likes it.
