    I was told the big board in the photo is Ginko.
    which brings up a question.....
    Is Cypress desirable as a wood type?
    or would Maple be good?

    The reason I ask is because we have some large maple logs we will be milling soon.

    Yes, but I'd go thicker, 4"

    Maple always makes for a good cutting board, sounds like it would make a great workbench slab too.

    his is hinoki... he actually manages to stay pretty busy over there somehow.

    One thing i think people dont understand is the massive amount of care and maintenance that goes into a board like that... he sands it every day to keep it clean and flat

    I'm shocked at the difference in closing ritual form restaurant to restaurant. Some places you pack up in 5 min and hope a porter does some deep cleaning. Other places guys are there for 2 hours after close. Shela shining, sharpening, and setting up for the morning.

    It's not like you can take it over to the sink and scrub the board.
    When I was a kid in high school in wood shop class we used a cabinet scraper instead of coarser grit sandpaper.

    I bet that would work well on a large board like this.

    The first thing I thought of when I read Jons post was a cabinet scraper. A really great tool that has been lost to the plug in world except for Luthiers and other no electricity craftsmen.
