This board has been featured in a lot of our Cooking Lesson photos lately; it's a great board, and even better in person. Beautiful and also lovely to use, I've had it now for over a year — here's how it has held up.
Update, a year later: I first talked about this board in May 2014. Since then it has sat out on my countertop and gotten used many times. I like how there are little feet on this board; if you're tall you'll especially like this, as it's raised up. I like the feet because they keep the board steady and firm without resorting to other ways of stabilizing it (like a rubber mat or wet paper towel).
But the board has also stayed very beautiful, with no cracking, splitting, or fading. I take care to rub in a little olive or vegetable oil after it has been used a few times and is getting dull. This shines it back up and brings out the beauty of the wood.
Highly recommended — one of the nicest boards I own, and a great deal.
