Solid Oak Cheese Board

Made a cheese board today from a piece of Oak i picked up yesterday down at the timber yard, the board measures 9 inches wide by 13 inches long and is approx one inch thick, it has a big knot in it, which is why it's a Cheese Board and not a chopping board, the grain patterns around the knot inspired me to keep it in there, rather than saw it off when i squared the board up.

I had originally wanted to make another small foot stool from this piece of timber, but as i planed it down and the grain started to appear from under the rough sawn surface, i quickly changed my mind and spent the time and energy to make it into a Cheese Board, the board now sports some nice felt feet, so it doesn't mark the table and ive been told that the Christmas cheeses will be presented on this board rather than the one we have used for years, sounds good to me, as we can get twice the amount of Stilton on this one.
