Summertime is a season of unexpected entertaining. Since no one wants to cook, we try to keep fresh fruit, chips, dip, bread, cheeses, and olives on hand for sunset beers with neighbors on our porch. Usually we toss them on whatever cutting board happens to be handy, but these beauties from Gray Works Design will certainly raise the style bar a notch for us. A furniture company based in Woodstock, NY, they specialize in making gorgeous pieces from reclaimed woods. Their “footed platte” is a raised board with feet on the bottom of the board. The elevated position instantly adds a layer of sophistication to whatever you serve. Available at Gray Works shop on Etsy, at prices ranging from $100 to $50. Hint: Save this one in your wedding gift file.
