Mayfield Modern‘s serving boards and charcuterie trays feature solid wood cut to precision, sanded and finished by hand in our central Texas shop. Our strict quality standards and exquisite craftsmanship result in a product worthy of passing down for generations.

The serving board shown in this example is the Modern Turtle Tray which as the name implies, resembles a turtle’s shell.  It is made from solid black walnut from Missouri which can vary a bit in color from medium to very dark brown and is always beautiful.  The Modern Turtle design brings out the gorgeous characteristic grain of the black walnut and provides several functional sections for food and the 16 inch diameter gives you plenty of space to serve meats, cheeses or hors d’oeuvres to a crowd.

Our serving boards and charcuterie trays make great gifts and look great when displayed in the kitchen!
