Build your own charcuterie board with drawers using the free woodworking plans available at the link. This board measures 45 inches long by 11.25 inches wide and is 4 inches high. Of course you can modify the size to suit your space.

One way to spruce-up inches your kitchen is to replace that old wood cutting board with a new laminated one. It is a simple project to make, and the various laminates can enhance the interest and beauty of your custom cutting board. Woods of two or more contrasting colors works best. Be sure to use hardwoods with beautiful grain patterns to create the greatest interest.
