I cannot resist the beautiful rustic charm of reclaimed wood cutting boards. They make awesome serving trays or plates. They transform a simple soup and sandwich meal into a delightful affair.
Although serving food in wooden café plates is an expensive option, I feel that it is worth every penny. As long as they are roughly of the same size, they do not have to be identical. It’s definitively something to put on your Holidays wish list. It’s on mine!
The Most Practical Size
My favorite one, due to its versatility, has to be the Sunday Styles Cutting Board. A 22 inch long, this wooden board works perfectly as serving ware on a buffet table, to serve antipastos at your dinner table, as a cheese plate or to eat your breakfast on weekends.

I am an event designer and a caterer as asked me to find for them exactly that kind of wood tray for a ”Bread Basket” (50 of them) and also a smaller version for a ”Bread Plate” (500-1000 of them). Any ideas if there are artists that do kind of the same product but closer to home…Montreal?
