    Large Cypress Sushi Cutting Boards....any interest?

    I just got off the phone talking to a mill owner in Hawaii.
    One of the woods that came up in conversation was large pieces of Monterey Cypress.
    I half way remembered someone asking about thick slabs to be used by Sushi Chefs.
    This is something I know nothing about. So I need help from you guys. I don't even know what you call these other than a big thick board.
    What would be good finished dimensions for a large single piece board like the Sushi Chefs use?
    They will probably be fairly expensive so I need to know what something like this would normally sell for.
    Plus, he has some nicely figured pieces for fancier ones.

    Not sure if this is something I should pursue, so if any of the Sushi guys would give their input it would be greatly appreciated.

    I have no business wanting something like that, but I do!

    I might have to burn it for warmth when my wife kicks me out to the doghouse though.

    I wouldn't have room for something like that, but it's definitely cool.

    If I kicked my wife's Keurig into the trash, I would have room for something like that... She'd kill me, though, and not just because of throwing her coffee maker away, but because she hates my existing 20x15x3 edge grain boards, as it is.

    I find it cool and would want smth like that for my kitchen if I was single. But once you're married, it's all about compromise. And my wife wouldn't see the beauty or coolness in half a treue in our kitchen, I'm afraid...

    48x18x2 would be preferable.
