    2 thumbs up as well.
    Extremely reasonable price considering the amount of hand work obviously required. I've got a 14 x 18 on order and can't wait to see it.

    You went for the mosaic? Nice! I have a plain maple on order as well, but I got it a custom thickness. I'd almost want one of these as an art piece, or perhaps as a smaller board to go with the larger one

    Yeah, it's kind of a peace offering to she who must be obeyed. If she finds out I bought three knives this week I'll be walking with a limp for a while. I can't wait to see it, it's going to replace the crappy board my wife uses at her station (we love cooking together).

    Hey Tjangula, your custom board is shipping today, assuming I can persuade the shipping department to navigate the USPS with 3 kids in tow (Canada shipment). My sawmill has been sending me a bit of quartersawn lumber recently, so I went with that on your board. I think you are going to be really pleased. Beautiful wood grain.

    It's a heavy beast!

    That board is beautiful. I just got a brick pattern from John which is also gorgeous, but wow, that crazy pattern will be a hit!

    I posted a review of my first one here http://www.kitchenknifeforums.com/sh...l=1#post388068

    I'm so happy with mine I bought four more. For anyone hesitant to cut on them, they are extremely durable. I've got two in the kitchen and both are used daily and you'd be hard pressed to tell they get used at all.

    Availability?

    The holidays are probably not the greatest time to enquire about when these might become available?

    Due to the labor involved, I don't plan on carrying these as regular items. I've gotten 2 orders for them in the last couple days, so I can add a third if you'd like. Feel free to e-mail me at theboardsmith1@gmail.com if you are interested.

    Thanks much!
    John
