Make a fun tree-shaped charcuterie board complete with trim to contain all those yummy holiday snacks. Bonus: The materials for this project allow you to make two boards, give one as a gift and keep one for yourself. This guide will give you step-by-step instructions so you can create a one-of-a-kind charcuterie board all your own.
For this project, you'll need:
- One 1 x 18-inch x 4-foot pine panel
- One 1 x 2-inch x 8-foot common pine board
How to cut:
- Using your miter saw, cut the 18-inch x 4-foot board into two pieces, each piece 24 inches long.
- Then, use a carpenter square to measure and draw out the tree shape onto the pine board using the dimensions in the pattern above.
Tip: Always wear safety goggles when operating power tools.
- Be sure to attach all trim using wood glue and 11/4-inch brad nails.
- Along the bottom of the tree, cut two pieces of 1 x 2 at 6 1/4-inches long with a 22 1/2-degree bevel on one end. Attach to tree using wood glue and 1 1/4-inch brad nails.
- For the bottom of the trunk, cut one piece of 1 x 3 at 5 1/2-inches long.
- For short sides of the trunk, cut two pieces of 1 x 2 at 6-inches long.
- For longer sides of the tree, begin with 22 1/2-degree bevel at the bottom. Place board in position.
- Now, using a piece of scrap wood, mark the angle.
- Use a miter saw to cut a 43-degree bevel. Attach using wood glue and 1 1/4-inch brad nails.
