    Holy cow! Black walnut Carolina slab

    Wow, is this thing a work of art. I'm afraid to use it! Beautiful, heavy, impeccable craftsmanship. I'd love to use the provided feet, but as I'm vertically challenged, they raise the board a bit too high for my comfort. I've got an Architec Smart mat under it which hopefully is fine? Water should not be an issue underneath.

    Not a great pic, but...

    You could trim and inch or so off the legs of your prep table. Who will know? HA

    Yeah, they're stunning. I love my walnut.
    Your mother was a hamster and your father smelt of elderberries. Now go away you silly man or I shall taunt you a second time!

    It's truly functional art. Even the feet (which are now back on it) are beautiful.

    brianh, I'm in the same boat. I use a chef's cart to do all of my prep work and it's a little bit higher than my counter top. With my black cherry cutting board on top of the cart, it almost makes me feel like I could rest my chin on the board without bending down. I just got used to it.

    I had the same feeling until I took off the wheels. Perfect height now, which I'm so not used to. The other idea I had was a thick floor mat to raise me up a bit, but I'm happy now!

    Absolutely beautiful. Congratulations.

    May I ask your wait time for the board? From the day you paid to the day you received. Thanks!

    Thanks! I've really been enjoying using it. Wait time was about 4-5 weeks, but there were some circumstances that made the wait especially long. I don't think this is typical.

    I should add that I was upgraded to the walnut from my order of maple, to make up for the issues. Couldn't be happier.

    Thanks, Brian. I'm on week 5 myself at the moment; hopefully this will be the week . Yours is truly gorgeous. Enjoy it.
