The holiday season, with all it’s parties and entertaining, is coming at us fast! But not all the meals this fall and winter will be formal sit down dinners. Today I’m sharing how to make sandwich serving boards to make your casual meals a little more interesting, too.
Supply List for Sandwich Serving Boards
- 2 large rustic bread boards
- 2 small rustic bread boards
- Creative Versa-Tool (The shading point comes in this kit.)
- soft rag
- food grade mineral oil
First, prepare the boards for wood burning by sanding. Then wipe off all the dust with a soft rag.
Insert the shading point into the Versa-Tool, turn it on, and allow it to heat up. Lightly sketch a few flowing lines across the ends of the small boards using a pencil. When the Versa-Tool heats up use the edge of the shading point to burn a thin line. Erase any pencil lines that still show.
Then go back and add the leaves with the large flat area of the shading point.
Use a bowl to trace a circle on one end of the large rustic bread boards. Trace over with the edge of the shading point, then add the leaves.
To finish, rub food grade mineral oil into the wood, wipe off, and buff.
Note: These are serving boards. The wood is soft so don’t cut on them.
The circles are perfect for bowls of soup or dip.
I hope you and your guests will enjoy a few meals on these sandwich serving boards this fall.
