Hi, I’m Gerald, the artisan and founder of the craft studio American Stonecraft ®. Thank you for exploring a unique Charcuterie Board Set I handcrafted in Lowell, Massachusetts. This is an extension of my best-selling, signature work, the individual Charcuterie Board, but in a larger sculptural format. Here, I reconstruct the single stone I started with. The set came from the place listed in the title, and the exact dimensions are found in the sizing tab below. Each wood slat is 3″ wide for scale.

It is a set of food-safe boards for serving and grazing. Cheeses, charcuteries, honeycomb, nuts and dried fruit, cakes and pastries, and countless delights will be right at home. It is also a trivet, safe for a hot casserole or candles. One friend set them below the table settings as colorful chargers to accent white porcelain dishes. The stone will also protect wood from the water rings that weep through clay pots. Another friend with vintage wooden speakers used hers below a beautiful spider plant that colorfully extended its shoots. The silicone feet had just the right grip, and didn’t rattle from the vibrations. Or you might use it as a non-absorbent cutting board for deboning seafood or trimming meat. Consider pre-chilling the stone in the freezer, or slightly warming the stone (below 125°), depending on the dish and season. Another idea related to its thermal properties, is that the mass of your room temperature stone will speed the defrosting of frozen food, particularly if you sandwich the item between multiple boards.

I think of each Charcuterie Board Set as functional sculpture, and the multiple boards will offer serving space when desired, or a pleasing sculpture otherwise. It would also make a great gift for a family, possibly even with matching the number of boards in the set with the number of people in the household. Chinese culture considers stones to be concentrations of energy and life, objects of contemplation and worship, microcosms of heaven and earth. (Kernels of Energy, Bones of Earth, 1986). I wholeheartedly agree!
