I had some nice rimu that came out of my home after doing renovations. I used a piece of it to make the cheese board shown below. I used a router to shape this piece but it is just as easy with some basic hand tools.
The magnetic knife holder provided a different look to the piece while still being functional.
This was a gift for a house warming where we took it for a test drive with some nice cheeses and it performed better than I expected - or maybe that's the wine talking...
