Although an issue came up, the board itself is stunning. Waiting on the woodworker to hit my friend back, but I'm gonna have to post a pic or two anyway as long as the resolution is favorable, the actual quality of the work is just sick.
So the new board came in a few days ago, been meaning to post pics, it's pretty sick!
Here it is next to my old board...
And the old one on it's own...
My camera phone sucks, does neither of these boards justice. The bamboo is just a pretty run of the mill $60ish endgrain board I've had for a couple years, keep it well oiled for the most part though, but man those gouges, I'm frightened to take a blade to this new work of art haha.
Bamboo gouges a lot worse than end grain wood boards and your new board will actually heal it's self somewhat. I have put gouges in my end grain maple and go back later and they're gone. But if you don't take care of it it will eventually look like marks board!
