Even so, the wood is now cracking and splitting. The upper left corner has split off completely and there are splits in other areas of the board.
The reason for this, in my opinion, is that the manufactured this board with a bunch of squares glued together instead of using a solid wood panel.
This was a VERY expensive item and should have been solidly constructed, but instead they decided to be greedy and use sub-quality materials and make a killing on this item.
My wife is 5'8" and I am 6'2". Because of our height, our counters are built 1 1/2" taller than normal. With the added height of the counter and the additional thickness of the cutting board base, the board top is about at the maximum my wife could comfortably cut on the board. So the height is fine for us.
The board is fairly large, but not as large as I expected. Either way it is too large to store and will be kept in the same place on the kitchen island. The 3 cups and the disposal portion take up a large area of the cutting board area which does not leave as much area as I would have liked for chopping.
The center area under the board is not easily accessible. Another drawer for storage could have been added to the center, under the board. Now, if one wants to store items in the center area, one must first remove the 3 cups, then remove the cutting board from the 4 stainless steel posts that keep it solidly on the base. The center portion is then accessible. It's large enough for a cheese cutting board, and a few small items to be stored in the space.
The 1 cup holders have measurements written on them but are really just over 3/4 cup. Nice size though for prepping.
Poor quality control (2 knots in block)
It's very expensive.
I would recommend the cutting board station, keeping in mind: 1. The additional height 2. It's not storable. Because it's not storable I would have liked it a little larger.
