    Aww, we're just mad 'cause we didn't think of it first ;-) Reminds me of an old MAd Magazine parody of marketing techniques . . . "Amazing Rubber Ball" Made from the same material as jet aircraft tires. Throw it down, it bounces up. Throw it up, it bounces down. Amazing! Get yours today!!!

    On the other hand, I don't think I'd want much less than $20 for a small cutting board if I was making and selling them. They're simple, but (assuming they're finished nicely) there's a fair amount of handwork involved.

    If he gets his price, more power to him.
    It is a quick and dirty way to make a board.
