1. Measure 15cm from the top of the board on the left and right side and draw a line from the centre top of the board to those points, creating the roofline of your house cheese board.

Mark cut lines

2. Use a saw to cut along your roofline.

3. Create a border of masking tape around the house-shaped board to leave an exposed timber border.

4. Paint the face with blackboard paint and allow to dry well. Depending on your finish, you may need to paint a second coat.

5. Once dry, wash well and then place your favourite cheeses on top. You can use a chalk texta to write the names of the cheeses like we did.
