CUSTOM CHARCUTERIE BOARDS AND KITCHENWARE
Located in Gainesville, VA, Kapers Woodworks is a small, woman-owned business that creates one-of-a-kind kitchenware.
What We Do
Custom woodworking is our passion
From charcuterie boards to whiskey flight boards, we create custom functional designs to fit the decor of a home, office, or event space. We work to personalize a piece so it’s perfect for you. Our custom pieces make great gifts for clients, birthdays, weddings, anniversaries, and more. Contact us today to get started on your project.
Custom Epoxy inlay charcuterie trays
Our custom epoxy inlay trays are our best seller (who doesn’t love a blue crab?). Each board is created from live edge walnut and customized with a design and epoxy color of your choosing.
Traditional Charcuterie boards
Our charcuterie boards are crafted entirely by hand. No two boards are the same. The seven designs are named, by my son, after himself, his best friends, his cousins, and my best friend’s daughters.
personalized Serving trays
Perfect on a coffee table or ottoman, each tray can be personalized with a name, initials, or design. The creative possibilities are endless.
From a standard board design to one created from your vision, our whiskey flights will add a personal touch to any bar. Want to take it up a notch, let’s add some etched shot glasses!
tea light candle holders
A simple, yet elegant design, these candle holders are perfect on a mantel or as the center piece on a dining room table. Prefer flowers over candles? We can modify the design to create a beautiful display for small vases.
Our coasters are crafted from combinations of beautiful hardwood including walnut and maple.
Why Choose us
Each piece is handcrafted by me, from removing the bark to the final coat of board butter. I am self-taught, learning the basics from YouTube during COVID and, thanks to the help of many amazing woodworkers at Makersmiths in Leesburg, VA and Purcellville, VA., I continue to learn and refine my skills.
How it all began
My passion for woodworking started simply enough with the need for desks during COVID. I quickly realized, given my schedule already filled with a full-time job, an active son, and my role as a wife as well as limited space, that building large-scale pieces would not work. I stumbled upon some local walnut and started playing around with ideas for pieces I would use in my own home. After creating a custom seahorse board for my son’s swim team 4th of July raffle (now an annually requested item!), I discovered a creative side I didn’t realize I had.
LOCALLY SOURCED Lumber PARTNERS
When purchasing a piece from Kapers Woodworks, you are not only supporting my small business but many others. The locally sourced, naturally and industrially felled lumber used to create each handcrafted piece is purchased from several small, family-owned lumber mills in Warrenton, VA, Timberville, VA, Catharpin, VA, and Charles Town, WV. Whenever possible, board hardware is purchased from Habitat for Humanity Restore, in order to give back to the community.
We are proud to work with the following Virginia lumber suppliers:
