I will be in the market for a very large slab-type cutting board for sushi within the next year. I am willing to drive anywhere on the west coast to pick it up if I can find a woodworker to make it cheaper than bringing it back from Japan. It needs to be Hinoki or similar soft wood, unfinished. It's just a piece of wood, so if anyone knows where I can buy the wood and have it planed and jointed I can probably finish it myself. Also, if anyone knows of a place in Tokyo that sells something like this it would save me some time searching it out in Japan - I will report back on prices if others are interested. I know it will not be cheap! The one pictured below is at Urasawa in Los Angeles.
