Introduction: Bread Board

About: I am a self taught average carpenter. I started doing carpentry for the first time in 2010. I have moved up to being a finish carpenter and installer. I am also self taught on Auto CAD and Adobe Illustrator…

Fun bread or cheese board.


Laser Machine (for the shape and engraving on top)

1/4 Wood (for my own bread board, I used poplar wood)


Sander and sand paper

Food grade oil


Step 1: Laser Work

If you have a laser engraver, you can engrave an image onto the surface of your project. If you don't, you can still make a bread/cheese board.

I also used the laser engraver to cut the shape out of wood. I made a top piece and a bottom piece. However this can also be done by hand, with only one board if wanted.

Step 2: Sanding

After cutting it, I glued the two pieces together, keeping all sides flush.

I then sanded the board with 150 grit sand paper, 220 and then 320. This gave me a smooth feeling board.

Step 3: Oiling

I then oiled the board using a cutting board oil (food grade) and followed the instructions on the bottle.

Step 4: Completion

I then decided to put a leather strap through the hole in the top of the board so that I can hang it in the kitchen
