Fine furniture is an apt description for this cutting board. It's massive, and is something that will stay out on the work area at all times. The size offers a substantial work surface, while the mass makes for a very stable platform for any sort of knife or prep. The workmanship is excellent, and being a woodworker myself, I can be a bit picky about such things. The fact that I was willing to pay for this item rather than take the time to make one up myself should say something about the difficulty and labor involved in dong a cutting board well. Faced with the same choice again, I'd still buy this one rather than make one myself. Keep it oiled with a good mineral oil, and this one should last a lifetime. Very satisfied.
I recommend this product.
