Thread: Holy cow! Black walnut Carolina slab

    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

    HAHA! You know, though, you've given me an idea... it IS on wheels...

    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.
