I wasn't 100% pleased with the board at first, it wasn't quite flat. It wasn't worth it to send it back, so I ran it through my neighbor's planer, now I'm pretty happy with it. If I had it to do over, I would have just spent a few more $ on a better board.

Where'd you get the board? I had a horrible experience when I bought mine.

Bought it off ebay. Overall F&F was OK, just not properly flat.

I bought mine from chopbloc.com and it is a great looking/feeling board but the customer service and runaround I got was brutal!! Also, there is a pretty good sized defect in the bottom of the board but like you, I don't believe its worth the trouble of trying to return it. Looks good and feels good, so i'll just keep it

Its 18 x 24, 3 inches thick. There was a pic of it in Boardsmiths thread offering it, but it didn't look as large there as there was nothing for reference. This is a nice, BIG board.

That's a hell of a board! I don't know where I'd even store a board that big.

I think I'll be leaving it out in a semi-permanent spot.
