Homegating in the South | Charcuterie Boards

This year we may not be tailgating for our favorite teams, but that doesn't stop our love of fall, food, and football! Take your homegating to the next level with Designed For Joy's charcuterie boards.  

Charcuterie boards make for beautiful and fun food displays. Our boards are made with locally sourced walnut and maple wood from Durham and Wake County sanded and oiled by our artisans. We then add soft, durable leather stitched handles with beautiful brass hardware (that will not rust) to the sides of each board, and rubber feet to the bottom for stabilization and counter protection.

Each one of our charcuterie boards is a masterpiece of its own, unique in shape, wood grain, and character, including gorgeous spalted wood patterns, knots and live edges.
