    Funny you should mention ash. My boardmaker likes it for boards, while a lot of people think it's too hard. I looked it up and there are so many types of ash and varying hardnesses, I once again trust the experts.
    Hard ash is bad, but "soft" ash hits around 1300 on many janka scales I've seen (sorry pesky ), so I'd think it would be a great material.
    My wife is the same as yours, Drinky. I have this tiny little edge grain cherry board that she uses almost exclusively. I have to be honest, I often use it if I'm making a salad or sandwich and have only a few small items to prep. A small (thinner) endgrain might be in the cards a bit down the road for these such instances.

    Yeah, with the ash board I just had to take a chance. I asked the guy which type of ash it was and he didn't know exactly, but it doesn't strike me as very hard compared to other boards I have. I also checked which glue he used to make it. I always do this with the hobbyist board makers to make sure the glue is not hard on my knives and is also food safe. In the end, I think it is a pretty nice looking little board and only cost $30.

    I got the board on etsy, but can't remember the seller off hand.

    And as for the profile image, it is actually of Eugene Hutz the lead singer for Gogol Bordello. I only wish I looked that crazy.
