Trade & John

You Can Now Build Your Own Cheese Board!

You've been invited to the wedding with a plus one, but the gift registry is either exhausted or just doesn't inspire. How about a one-of-a-kind custom-made heirloom professionally engraved with their name and the wedding date? This can be the centerpiece for all the great memories that have yet to be made! It also makes a great anniversary or birthday gift!

Click "Build Your Own Board" below to start building your Wedding Board. Your board will be custom made in a shape similar to what is represented in the product photo. Pick from one of four accent colors Trade & John has carefully chosen to highlight the natural tones of the wood. The name and date will provide a brilliant white contrast. Although these boards are all unique, each will be a minimum 22 inches long by 9 inches wide. All options are included, as is shipping. We'll do the work, you enjoy the event!

The Thing About Natural Products

At Trade & John, we carefully craft each of our charcuterie boards and custom cutting boards by hand from locally-sourced hardwoods.  Part of the beauty of any natural product is its inherent flaws, each with its own story to tell.  While we take great pride in offering an outstanding product for you to enjoy, some imperfections cannot be helped.  We consider those imperfections to be part of the character that sets them apart from what you might find in larger retailers that provide mass-produced products.  If you have any questions, we're happy to help.


Caring for Your Trade & John Board

Our boards are 100% food safe.  The hardwoods we use are naturally anti-bacterial, so it takes very little effort to keep our cheese boards clean.  It's OK to get it wet, but remember that wood naturally absorbs moisture so just don't submerge it and don't run it through the dishwasher.  Simply wipe it down and make sure it's dry before putting it away.  Apply any food-safe butcher block oil or wax when the finish begins to lose its luster.  It's that simple!
