I wanted to make a charcuterie board for my wife for Christmas and I had some live edge walnut and other rough cut walnut in my wood stock, so I started to play with ideas that met with the shape of the wood and the concept. I truly enjoyed the process of design, carving, sanding, and finishing this piece and decided to make more to share. I love how the form follows function, the live edges, and the details of the grain. Each board that I make is different as I am responding to the materials.
Personally I appreciate the beauty of the natural wood. Natural knots, slight cracks and imperfections are rustic qualities. Some prefer a more finished look. Just let me know how rustic/refined you are looking for and we can find a balance.
You could use these as cutting boards, but I would recommend that they be used as an aesthetically but functional unique serving board (or flip it over and use the back as a cutting board). All boards are finished with a food safe mineral oil. If you would like to have your board made to different specifications than a pull down, just choose "Contact Maker" and let me know what you would like. I'll do my best to meet your needs. I can also make these boards in other woods. The live edge option is easier to accommodate in some species of wood than others. Other great options could be maple, hickory, spalted maple, elm, ash, oak. If you have a specific species in mind, let me know. I am flexible.
How to order:
Choose from the pull down options, or if you don't see the options you like, or want to just make something crazy fun, let me know by clicking on the "Contact Maker" button and describing your idea the best you can. We can collaborate on your next serving board together!
My normal time frame to make these is around 4 weeks +/-. If you need something quickly and just need me to send you a board I may have in the studio, let me know what you desire below and that you need it quickly and If available I will choose something nice, snap a pic and once you approve, send it out to you!

Darin was wonderful to work with. From the initial conversation to the end, the project went very smoothly and finished ahead of schedule. He was very patient with my numerous questions and even sent photos of rough wood for me to choose my exact piece, lending a custom feeling to the finished Charcuterie Board. It came out beautifully and I will definitely use Darin again for a project like this. Thank you Darin
I couldn't be more satisfied with the overall experience with Darin from the start all the way to the finish. Love, Love Love his work, remembering all the small details all the way to the packaging. I can't wait to start my next project, I know exactly who I will be calling. Its nothing like great customer service, and a great product.
I decided at last minute to find an unusual wood piece for my daughter for Christmas. I stumbled on the Marketplace site and saw Darrin’s charcuterie board. He responded right away and we communicated back and forth about the board, wood, color, shape and size. I received the board yesterday and it is beautiful! A piece of art my daughter will love. She collects cutting boards! I would purchase from Darrin again and recommend his work. I did receive before Christmas too!
Darin worked with me to meet a pretty tight timeline for an anniversary gift. He was very responsive and provided feedback during the course of the project. The gift arrived on time and I'm more than happy with the results!
I couldn't be happier with my charcuterie board! It's the perfect one-of-a-kind gift for my fiancée. Darin sent pics and asked questions about my preferences every step along the way. Still, it came out even cooler than I had envisioned. Darin selected a piece of oak with a lot of beautiful colors in the grain and worked it in a way that highlights the unique qualities of the wood. It is not like anything I could buy in a store.
