Became the proud owner of a "Marko" cutting board today. Combined with my guyoto and saya that Marko made also, I have the triple play.
Oh, and Charlie is the cat.
Looks awesome. Congratulations!
The cutting board is probably the nicest I've ever seen. Not only are the pieces matched to create an eye pleasing pattern, it's built like a tank, easy to pick up because of the side grooves, and with the non-slip feet it's solid as a rock. I have a Boardsmith as well and Marko's gives it a real run for it's money.
I love it all.
ohhhh is this why you havent posted up the new wood yet :P j/k ive just been stalking your site :P
Well, it's more like two out of three, as Myron did some final shaping, sanding and oil finishing the saya.
Thank you, Sir, that board looks good in your kitchen.
I will add that it is made of probably the heaviest walnut (quarter-sawn or rift sawn depends who you are asking) I have ever encountered. At first I thought maybe the wood has high moisture content (even though all lumber I get is kiln dried), but after a couple of years later, it was still just as heavy, so I figured it was probably from a larger tree with a fairly dense core.
I'm patiently waiting on my own Marko trifecta :)
That looks really nice Myron
Beautiful board with no sap wood! Nice matching of color too.
