Scouted: Charcuterie and Cheese boards

cheese board.001

Did you know that TSG Scout Member Richard Wincorn Studio created the whole collection of  charcuterie and cheese boards at  Design District favorite FT33?  A perfect fit for the chic modern farm- to-table concept of Executive Owner/Chef Matt McCalister.   Each board was hand made from Texas hardwoods, mesquite, walnut, and oak. Reflecting Matt’s attention to detail and vision, Wincorn selected each piece for exceptional color, grain, and natural edges.
