Steve Ewalt 

 Steve Ewalt shares, “I love to make things. Here at Covenant Living of the Holmstad, we have a wonderful wood shop and residents who are skilled woodworkers willing to share their knowledge.”  This year, Steve and other woodworkers will have a variety of hand-crafted charcuterie boards for sale at the Holmstad Bazaar.

One of Steve’s Charcuterie Sets

Steve Ewalt’s charcuterie boards and spreaders are made of oak that he shapes, decorates with wood burned messages, and then seals with food-safe cutting board oil. He hopes you join us at the October 1, 9 am-3 pm Holmstad Bazaar. There will be lots of beautiful hand-crafted items to buy for yourself or as gifts. The proceeds help residents fund activities, scholarships for our teen dining room servers, and gifts to area not-for profits.
