Okay I'm new here, have a few nice knives and figure out that it's time for me to get a decent cutting board/butcher block. I want something end grain and know that on this forum Boardsmith is the go to guy and have looked at his site and really like what I see but have a question about another guy I've seen. Does anyone have any experience with Al Ladd's products? Looking at his site he seems to put out a nice product but a little pricey, is it worth the extra money over boardsmith or are you just paying for the looks? If I was going to go with boardsmith I was thinking or the Carolina slab in Mahogany but would love to hear any points on favorite woods or sizes and the pro/cons of feet, I am leaning away from them.
Thanks in advance for the help and for this great forum.
