I just bought this cutting board at a local "job lot" store
It is 13" in diameter, 1-1/2" thick, weighs (according to my bathroom scale) 5lb and the sticker says "imported from Thailand". The "inlay" pieces are nice and tight. It cost $10. If you flip it over the surface is all flat so that side could be used for serious chopping without marring the front.
With the holidays coming up, I'm thinking it might make a good gift for a few of my friends who are serious about cooking and equipment.
What's your opinion? If you got this as a gift would you honestly like and/or use it? "Cons" as well as "pros" are earnestly solicited.
(The only thing I'm not sure about is whether someone would really want a round board but you may have other observations. I don't know the wood but I'm speculating they do some serious chopping in Thailand and it doesn't look or feel cheap.)
"Job lot" stuff goes quickly and there are about 4 more in good condition left so I hope I get feedback ASAP. TIA.
