The 18x24" board is named Magnum 432, I can understand the magnum part but why 432? The smaller 12x18" board contains 432 cubic inches of wood so it can't be something like that...

The 18 x 24 is 432 inches square.

Ah, that sorts it, I was thinking too 3D and missed the obvious.

I was trying to make it look different than the millions of others out on the internet so I came up with this name. My wife thinks it is silly.

I like names. The Carolina Slab was named to make it different. The Magnum 432 was also named to make it different. The 12 x 18 still doesn't have a name. Any suggestions? The board with a border could be called a North of the Border board but that might sound to Canadian. If I called it a South of the Border board it might sound to Mexican. Simply calling it The Border Board is a little to simple. Any suggestions?

Seeing as how your boards are insanely good, how about Bordering Insanity? :D

I like Boarder Line. (Nice play on words there as well.)

I'm the one who is bordering on insanity! LOL
