[directions title=”Steps:”]
  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.
  2. Mark cut lines

  3. Use a saw to cut along your roofline.
  4. Create a border of masking tape around the house-shaped board to leave an exposed timber border.
  5. Cover edges with tape
