I purchased this as a gift so I can't speak to durabilty. The board looks good, appears solidly assembled, and worked well in the week I observed. The only logistical problem with the board is a lack of a finger grip - it's 20+ pounds and can be a chore to muscle around. As another suggested, I believe this can be remedied with a router and some elbow grease.
