    For Sale: Whole Hog Cutting Boards

    As both a woodworker and a barbecuer, I made this for my own use, but I figure others on this site might want a board on which they can parade a whole hog as well as carve it up. The one pictured is made from a single plank of spalted maple, 2" thick, 18" wide, and 7' long. There's a sloped groove all around the perimeter of the cutting board to catch all the juices and direct them to the two drain holes. A local arborist saves the nicer butt logs of all the trees he cuts down and saws them up, so I have a wide range of species and sizes available to me. Next up, I'm working on an adjustable stand on which to set this pig board.

        That's some Great woodworking there. It reminds me of the boards that they would bring the pig out on at traditional Hawaiian Luaus.

        Thanks! Making it from a single plank, I wanted it to still look like it came from a tree. Rustic, but not rough or crude.

            Larbo, do you make smaller ones, countertop style? Big enough to do ribs or brisket, say 18"x24" ballpark?

              Hey, that's great that there's interest in some smaller cutting boards! In order to make the long one with the handles, I have to cut a couple feet off the end of the plank, where the wood flares out at the root end of the log. This end has some really nice spalting and grain, so it would make some handsome boards. I'll finish some up, post some pictures, and let you know the cost. (For the smaller, countertop version, I'm assuming folks would still want what Jerod has dubbed the "juice groove" all the way around the edges, but without the drain holes. If anyone wants something custom, just let me know; it's not a problem.)

              For the bigger pig boards with handles, the cost is roughly $100-$200 for the plank ($100 for the spalted Silver Maple pictured) and $300+ for the labor to fabricate them, depending on the degree of finishing you want. I haven't priced out the shipping yet, but for something that long and heavy, it's a safe bet that it will add at least another $100.

              If you're interested in a longer pig board, you'll need something to set it on. It could be as simple as a pair of sawhorses, but for mine I made the adjustable stand pictured below, which allows you to set the height of your board anywhere between 29" and 44". Not only does this allow each person to set the cutting board at a comfortable height for carving, but it allows the board to be used for more than just cutting up a whole hog. Set it low for a bench or display space or high to use for a bar... A pair of these will go for about $500 more.
