Enjoy an evening in our workshop making a beautiful cheese board you can bring out at the next dinner party and say “I made that!”

Suitable for beginners and more experienced woodworkers alike, our three hour course will guide you through the process of making your own cheese board, chopping board or serving platter using the finest quality, furniture grade hardwood.

You will start the evening by choosing your wooden 'blank' which you will use to create your stunning cheese board. You can pick your favourite wood from English Ash, Prime Oak or American Black Walnut. All materials are included in the price.

Our friendly instructor will show you how to transform it into a truly beautiful and food safe cheese board using top quality tools and processes in just three hours.

You will begin the evening by being shown a demonstration of how to use some wonderful hand tools you'll have access to in your own special tool kit for the evening.

This will include a variety of saws, a spoke shave, block plane and various other sanding and finishing tools.

You can choose to drill a hole for a handle, cut a special shape in the side or decide to simply make as you go and work the wood until you have the shape you are after.

We will give you full instruction for the whole evening and you'll learn how to use a variety of hand tools which will be useful for the rest of your life. 

And that’s not all. You will also learn how to expertly sand and apply a natural, food-safe finish to the cheese board to ensure it will be quality enough to adorn the table at even the most sophisticated cheese night!

You will finish the evening very relaxed and super proud of yourself with a potential new hobby that you’re sure to love as much as we do. Now that’s better than a night in front of the box, surely?

As standard, we supply solid English Ash with every course. This is a lovely wood to work with, is quite light in colour with beautiful grain patterns and looks great when finished. 

If you prefer you can upgrade to Prime Oak which has a richer colour and wonderful grain texture.

If you really want to push the boat out, you can opt for American Black Walnut which really is the cream of the crop and makes truly beautiful tableware.
