I was preping a bunch of stuff for a party last week and realized how hunched over I am at the cutting board. It occured to me that the counter is just too dang low. What I'm thinking now is that I'll get one of the Boos cutting boards that's 2 and a quarter inches thick and see if that helps, and then maybe attach some legs to it if it feels like it needs to go up some more. But that got me wondering if there's a formula or rule of thumb for determining the correct height based on your height or where your hands hang or some such....anybody ever heard of such a thing? The other thing I noticed is that it helps to work the material as close to the edge of the counter as you can, but we have tile counter with a rolled lip at the edge which sets you back an inch from the edge to start with. It would be neet to have a counter with a "gravy groove" set in about an inch from the edge to catch spills but that was otherwise flat right out to a square corner.
