    Any Pastry People Here? Need to Recommend a Marble Board

    Friend asked me, and I told her I would go ask the same people that recommended her current cutting board .

    She noted that SLT sells one for $40, and WS sells one for $130.

    Is there a noticable quality difference?

    I think she'd prefer a custom maker if there was one out there and the price is right.

    Thanks in advance.

    The Boardsmith sells some of the best boards I have seen and used. His maple boards are reasonably priced and can be customized. He has some listed in his subforum that are ready to ship. Plus David is a outstanding vendor.

    Haha, yes, I believe she purchased a mohagany board from him per my recommendation this past May. She's looking for a marble board for rolling pie dough's and such.

    Maybe check with a local granite/marble countertop supplier, they may have a piece in the size you need that they can't use for other purposes.

    Apparently she checked with one and for an 18-24, they were asking $200. I'll PM pumbaa when I get off the iPad for his thoughts as I know nothing about how quality, thickness and ability to remain cold plays into all of this.

    I like a maple pastry table, my Chef's influence. For home, I have me eye on a pastry board from Fantes.
