    I've used my first Boardsmith for some time, I have not gone light on it but always pampered it between the abuse (i.e. used Dave's mineral oil/beeswax stuff). It has some dark marks from hot utensils that have been put on it (small kitchen is a partial excuse) but also some deeper scars from the mistake of using a oroshigane on it. I now use a small poly for the oroshigane.
    Despite this the board works and looks fantastic. I must buy at least one more so all my kids can inherit one.

    I'll remember that the next time a board hits the dumpster.

    Just ruined four legs destined for a major island project. They will hit the dumnpster when I clean up Saturday morning.

    Hey, just sell them as peppermill blanks on ebay

    I confess that I neglect my boards just as much as my knives, i.e. both could use more frequent oiling and care. But I also use them without hesitation. I do raw poultry and fish on the sanituff, but everything else on one of my two cherry-maple boards.

    Shoot, we cut beef, chicken, fish, veggies, bread, flatten biscuit dough, cut out paper for crafts, you name it! It's a cutting board--Ima cut on it!

    I use mine for everything, and my other older boards get used for mise en place.
    I see no reason to not use the one board for both veg and protein. At least in my own kitchen!
