It's the season of giving!  I partnered up with Jaime Costiglio to bring you a brand new free gift plan, every Friday in the 12 weeks leading up to Christmas!  Over the years, we've gifted hundreds of plans, many that you can make with scrap wood.  Check out the entire Handbuilt Holiday Collection here.

This is our final Handbuilt Holiday plan of 2021, and it's easy enough to be completed by Christmas, and inexpensive enough to leave as a hostess gift.  Most anyone would appreciate this one!

DIY Charcuterie Board

Charcuterie boards are a entertaining staple, the perfect base and backdrop for a gorgeous edible collage.  But the charcuterie board itself - the wood board - can be hundreds of dollars!  You can build your own using scrap wood for free. 

This DIY tutorial walks you through how to piece scrap wood together to make a Charcuterie board.

To tie all the boards together, we added a footed base:

So just cut your boards, lay them out with glue, and attach the boards to the bottom.  Super easy!

DIY Charcuterie Board Plans

You can use any combination of 1x thick lumber, but I wanted to give a specific cut list as well (using 1 - 1x2x8 and 1-1x3x8).

Lay out your top boards, with the handle extending outward.

Measure and cut the "foot" board on the bottom.

Nail and glue the 1x2 foot boards to the bottom with 1-1/4" brad nails.
