Today I am back with a really fun project that is perfect for all your summer gatherings. While I actually put this project together a few weeks ago I am super excited to finally share this awesome DIY Salvaged Wood Serving Board with you! It is seriously on of my favorite Salvaged Wood Projects to date!
1. Salvaged Wood
5. Jig Saw
6. Wood Clamps
9. Dremmel with grinder or sander attachments
To start my DIY Salvaged Wood Serving Board I grabbed a piece of regular office paper and folded it in half and sketched out the design I wanted my board to have. While my design is reminiscent of a vintage style it is a bit different. I knew I wanted my design to have long handles on each side and I also wanted it to have a more elaborate style hanging loop in the middle of each handle.
Once my template was made I simply traced it on to my salvaged wood using a regular pencil.
Next using a jig saw I cut along the pencil line to create the outer edge of my salvaged wood serving board. To open up the hanging hole in the handles I used my drill with a larger bit. To remove any splinters and rough spots i sanded the board with 180 grit sand paper. To add the rounded worn shape to my handles and along the edges I used my dremmel with a grinder attachment. When I reached my desired shape I followed it up with a quick sanding along all the curved edges.
The curves along the edge can also be added using a router but I prefer the dremmel method. It does take a little longer but the final product has more imperfections in it giving my salvaged wood serving board a true vintage feel.
Did you love my new Salvage Wood Serving Board? I do! It has so many uses and it looks great on my Salvaged Dining Table.
