mhlee - Pros and cons of the rubber tipped feet. They add stability to the board and keep it from moving during use. The last thing you guys want while using those "scary sharp" edges would be a board you had to chase. They add shock absorption when chopping, air circulation underneath the board to help prevent warps and they are high enough to allow for an easy handhold when moving. I also add the wooden holders to give it a higher end look rather than just attaching them to the bottom of the board.
I have refinished boards in the past for some customers. When they leave the shop I make them look as much like new as I can. Once the boards leave the shop I rarely hear from my customers unless there is a problem. There may be some warping issues I haven't heard about so I can't say for sure if that has happened or not.
I do know of two though. One poster on KF who had a board for several weeks put his in the sink and ran hot water over it for 5 minutes and expected me to replace it. It arched up like a mad cat and had mildew on it. He ended up giving it to his mother. The other one was a 24 x 36 maple board with no feet that sat in a drop or two of water. The end lifted up like a ski jump but eventually came almost all the way down.
mainaman - I will take care of the discount tonight.
Thanks David, I have been holding for a very very long time on a good board, but now I could not pass.
I ordered a maple board from you on 3/13/11 before I saw this thread. Any chance I can get the discount too? No worries if it's too late. They are a great deal with or without the discount.
More than happy to honor the discount. Just took care of it.
