Hey David, still got to work out options on a new board, been procrastinating, and the missus figures the board I want is "too big, why cant you get a little one?"
I can relate. My wife initially okayed an 18x36, but of late is having some second doubts. Lucky for me, though, the order's already in!
Great to see you posting again Dave!
Just dropped off 18 boards at UPS this afternoon, 4 more will go out by Priority Mail tomorrow, 1 to an APO, 1 to Finland and 2 to Sweden. Now I can clean up all the loose ends I have hanging and get back to building the back stock so people don't have to wait.
Ben, tell your wife your board will be glued tomorrow. The mahogany looks a little light but it will still have a nice reddish tone to it.

Awesome Dave! Will do. It'll go something like "Well I'd love to get a smaller board honey, but I just got word that the one we ordered is nearly done!" In all seriousness, though, we're both super excited. Though we were both surprised to see 36" measured out on the counter. It'll fit though!
My friend carried a Magnum back from the US for me.
"Sure, sure, how big can a chopping board be?" he said... now he knows better. Good friend.
David, please let me know if you have seconds or nearly dones or simple boards. I'd like a cheap small one to do garlic/herbs and oddball tasks so I don't need to wash the Magnum after cutting an apple...
