could not believe how heavy it is. my son joked I will passs this on to my great grandchildren. needs lots and lots of wood oil. but Jacque and Julia and even Ming ..move over small kitchen but well worth the fit!
Maybe I didn't measure right, but the board is BIG and heavy. Don't get me wrong, it's a great product. I love it and I use it everyday. I live in a dry climate so I've been having to "baby" it with mineral oil and conditioner. Some of it is splitting slightly, but I think it will be ok.
I have had this for several months, now, and I followed the manufacturer's recommendation that it be rubbed with food-grade oil repeatedly. It is a wonderful chopping board. I waited until I felt the wood had been thoroughly saturated with the oil, in fact, I used up 8 oz. before using the board for anything wet, such as tomatoes, or for cutting meat and poultry.
Now, I do use it for those things, but I always rub off anything left on the board with salt and a little oil.
I used to have a marble block, and used it for everything, but it dulled my knives, and finally broke in half.
I use this for piecrust, and don't miss my old marble one. Plus, it won't break...I expect to have it for a long, long time.

I never expected the fine quality of the two boards I purchased. Site does not specify manufacturer, "Catskill Craftsmen, Inc", so I had no way of knowing both boards came from same place until I opened the boxes. I also purchased the reversible end grain 16"x12". I have shun knives and must use quality end grain wood when cutting or chopping. Hard to believe after being aggressive chopping garlic and slicing foods there was not a mark on either board! Purchased mineral oil (as per co.'s instructions) and prepared boards. Not a big deal at all preping boards upon arrival. Easy cleaning with cloth and oiling as part of maintenance
Cannot state product's life span, but based upon other reviews, if you take care of board (oiling), it should last for years.
Order board and go buy mineral oil while you wait your board's arrival.
Order arrived without any tracking/shipping notice.
