I ordered a Big Walnut Board from Mark a month ago. I have always been fascinating by whole wood boards and i think they look super cool.
In Japan they used it all the time and in Denmark many places started to offer them.
I know i know many will say ohh no they will twist crack bend ....
But so fare i had 3 whole wood board and many at my work too. And they all hold up just fine. And also many in Japan use them too so for me it was not somthing new.
In fact i abuse my boards quite a lot (or my GF dose and if it come some crack in it i dont care maybe i feel it or just make a butterfly joint.
For twisting i have never experience that only on plastic board and super thin ones. It is natural material and i never expect it to be perfect i even think its more beautiful when they have some imperfections
So here it is Curly walnut after 1 month of abuse, many drops, soaking in water by my GF and hacking with my chopper ! Thanks Mark !
