Maple/cherry/ walnut just missing some non skid feet. Any tips on where to get some decent looking ones?

I like your wood combination here, as well as the varying widths of the boards.

You can try the ones I used on my most recent board here, if you want some that are fairly short (they are from Ace Hardware):

I got some taller, narrower ones for this board from Rockler:

These are nice because you can just add some stainless steel screws and not worry about rust.

Hey Jev. Great looking board. How about those little stick on ones used under chair legs and such?

Nice looking board Jev, nice mix of wood types.

I picked the feet and screws for my boards from Lee Valley…

Good looking board, how much does it weigh?

The board is 17×15x1 3/4 and weights around 11lbs. Doesn’t feel too heavy.

That’s plenty solid, and something that a lot of people wouldn’t want to move around all the time. My first board was about 7-pounds, and I had a request from a family member for another one, but they didn’t want it as heavy as the first (7-pound) board. I guess it’s all a matter of perspective and desires. If this were for an butcher, it might be way too light.
