Just received my crazy board in the mail a week ago. Well packed and arrived totally undamaged. I opted for a lighter look because my countertops are dark iron soapstone.
Arrived pre-oiled, buttered and buffed. Smooth as glass, no detectable voids or bad joints. I though I would regret not asking for a groove in the edges to make it easy to pick up but the feet are high enough to make this moot. I really like the feet. Easy on the counter and higher than what I've seen before....really like them.
Of course it's a piece of art but it's definitely functional. It's been getting pretty much daily use and seems to be holding up well but of course it's time that will tell although I don't expect any issues. Highest quality board I've owned so far and I've got/had most of the top end boards at some time in the past.
So far I'm extremely satisfied - to the point I'm going to order several more to serve as gifts (and maybe one or two for myself.
Also it serves quite well as a place to photograph knives.
