This sail-shaped personalised oak cheese board will make a beautiful gift for a sailing enthusiast for a wedding or to celebrate a significant birthday.
This oak serving board resembles the shape of a sail and can be personalised with your own words.
The sailing inspired board is an unusual gift for the sailing enthusiast or for people who love the sea.
This lovely oak board is a thoughtful gift for the sailing enthusiast and would make a lovely birthday present or a thoughtful wedding present, particularly appropriate for a beach wedding, as a reminder of the sea and the wind.
The sail can be personalised with a sail number with up to six letters or numbers and the bottom of the sail can be personalises with up to 16 characters and spaces.
For a landmark birthday, you could have the person's initials and their age as the sail number, then you could add a phrase at the bottom, for example SAILING BY, PORT TO THE LEFT, LIFE'S A BREEZE.
For a wedding or wedding present, you could have the wedding date as the sail number, for example 21st May 2013 would be 210513. You could then add the couple's names at the bottom of the sail, or a suitable phrase for example ON THE SAME TACK, or SAILING TOGETHER.
The sail would also make a great gift for a helm to give to his crew and vice versa.
I always engrave on these boards in upper case, and instead of an '&', I use a reef knot, adding to the nautical theme of the board.
The oak board can be used to serve cheese or snacks or can be used as a bread board or chopping board.
Use the engraved side of the board for serving, or use the reverse side for chopping and keep the engraved side in its pristine condition for display when not in use.
The personalised oak serving board is designed to stand upright when not in use, making a stylish ornament on a shelf or window sill when not in use.
I individually make each board in my workshop in Derbyshire from a piece of solid oak which I cut, engrave and finish with a food-safe oil.
