    Does Anyone Else Experience This with Dave's Boards?

    It's so gorgeous that I hate to cut on it.

    My wife complains that I hardly ever use it. The "Honey, I need to condition it just a little more before I really start using it" excuse is starting to wear thin.

    I got one for my mother back east last summer, and while she won't admit it, my brother reports that she treats it as a show piece and hasn't once cut on it.

    Dave . . . you need to ugly-up your boards a little!

    I HAD that problem for about a year and a half - then jumped in when I needed a lot of cutting space and also used it as a pizza cutter and after that it is my regular board. I mineral oil it when needed and am working on my beekeeper nephew to get me some beeswax so I can make my own board butter.

    It took about a month or so before I allowed myself to cut vegetables on it. A year later, and I still cringe at the thought of working with raw protein on the board. I had to actually go out and get a small sani-tuff. I got tired of being a vegetarian.

    Sorry, I can't relate. When my Boardsmith board showed up I ran down to the Mexican supermarket and bought 9lbs of onions for $0.99 just so I could have stuff to cut!

    Mine has been in continual use since I got it. Absolutely the best board I've used. I probably should get one and put it away against the time when David will retire.

    Is it not a little blunt for that?

    I love to use my Boardsmith boards! Meat, fish, veggies, cheese, fruit, whatever - the only thing I always do on something else is garlic. Walnut and maple are both holding up great. With occasional oiling, they still look fantastic!

    I use mine all the time (maple w/ walnut border), and my wife has used hers every day since she got it x-mas morning.

    I beat it up! Can't wait till it starts showing it's age and care. Board patina, I call it.

    It was a little messy - must have been that 1/3 Norwegian in me that thought I could cut a pizza with a board -
