Serving Trays

The boards shown in the gallery represent some of the custom designs that How-Wood Products produces. All boards are hand crafted from solid wood and no two are alike. 


Live Edge Boards

  • Live edge boards bring the beauty of the natural wood into a functional design. How-Wood Products can custom create a live edge Cutting Board, Serving Board or work of art for your home. 
  • The walnut board shown has two cherry bowls inserted. They can be filled with olives or guacamole.The other side can be used as a regular cutting board

Custom Boards

  • How-Wood Products can incorporate your counter top or tile into a custom board that will accent your kitchen or any room in your house 

Whats the DOT for?

Contrasting wood DOT

Whats the DOT for?

Most of our cutting  boards have 2 usable sides.

This allows you to keep one side for a special purpose, i.e. garlic on one side and fruit on the other. You may just want to save the "pretty side" to use as a serving board when company comes over. However, many times both sides look alike 

so, we added a contrasting wood DOT to one side. We call this a memory DOT.

This helps you remember which side you wanted to save for a special purpose.
