A marble cheese board is the perfect accessory for the holidays. This wood and marble cutting board is perfect for displaying your favorite cheese plate, appetizers, or as a DIY hostess gift.
Need a last minute gift or the perfect marble cheese board for a party? Well why not make one! Cutting boards are fun and easy to make. Except for the 24 hour dry time, they are also very quick to make (very little hands on time compared to other DIY gifts). This year I decided to make myself one with a marble tile inserted into it for the perfect cheese board. I cannot wait to do some more entertaining so I can show it off.

Last year I shared these easy (and very sparkly) DIY drink coasters. Gotta keep the furniture looking nice even when partying! But this year, I went with the perfect accessory for my absolutely favorite party food… a cheese plate! I dare say there is nothing I like more than wine and cheese (even more than chocolate). It’s the perfect party food too because you can grab a bite here and there as you are mingling and socializing. And cheese is so good!
Usually I just display my cheese plate on a classic white serving tray. It totally works, but I knew I could do better. Before now, I actually have never made a cutting board. Why? Because I had enough of them already. But what I didn’t have was a beautiful marble and wood cutting board that would be perfect for displaying a collection of delicious cheeses.
This beautiful marble cheese board was made with a 6×12 Carrera marble tile (which came in a 2 pack for less than $8). Then I added some 1×1, 1×2, and 1×3 hardwood boards to create a little pattern. I chose walnut, cherry and hickory. The cherry and hickory ended up having very similar tones that you cannot tell the difference between the two, but our wood and marble cutting board is still beautiful. All the supplies needed for two boards cost me less than $40 and that included the cutting board oil that I can use on many, many boards in the future.
My kids love our new marble cheese board too! They thought it was pretty special that I made a fancy cheese plate for their afternoon snack today. Mom win! And I poured myself a glass of wine because I didn’t want to waste the delicious cheese. It sure did make homework more fun tonight!
