Got to travel to Tokyo and learn how to make soba noodles from a soba master at his home. I took dimensions of his kitchen sink and made this as a thank you gift. He likes it so much, he told me he hung it on the wall, he’ll never cut it.

I wish I knew it, I wouldn’t have made it end-grain.

Added my design layout in case anybody wants to make it. After it was done, I put on cherry ends to give it a different look and ran it through the the table saw so I could run maple on the sides to prevent any warp.

Beautiful! I would not cut on it either, frame it! Nice.

I’ll have to agree – way too nice to cut on!

I had no idea there there was such a thing as a soba master but it is Japan after all. Live there for a year and a my share of soba!

Same here, it is beautiful. I guess I will not rush to get rid of extra wood I think is in the way.
