    Maybe some smaller boards for charcuterie or cheese would be nice. Nice wood would be great for presentation of those things, and they wouldn't get cut up as much by cheese knives.

    I have about 10-12 board feet of bubinga in my basement that has been there for at least 15 years. The biggest problem is that it is 5/4 and 1 inch thick, so it is really too thin for a cutting board, but I think I may start making a cheese board or two from it.

    Maybe too thin for a workhorse cutting board, but for serving bread and or cheeses and stuff, a much more manageable weight and thickness. I'm away looking for nice serving boards.

    The Bubinga board has been placed in our gallery.
    I am still going to make some single piece boards but I think I will do some smaller pieces for cheese and ????
    I will try to do some less expensive pieces. But still use some fancy woods.
    Any suggestions on sizes or other details are welcome.

    Been sitting here trying to think of a rationale for purchasing it other than I want it. That is a beautiful board...

    Something smaller like maybe 8 x 10 or so would be nice for a small cheese tray.

    Maybe around 10 x 14 for manageable serving size or a little smaller.
