Board is good, but past boards have had a better velvet surface for beading. Please bring back the earlier surface material. Otherwise, the bead on it board is easy to use and every beader needs at least one of these boards!
Love these boards. Recently bought 3 of them. I like to leave my projects on them until I am able to finish them and stack them on my work table. They are functional and look pretty as well!
Thank you Jlll Wiseman for working on one and getting me hooked on the boards. So easy to pick up beads. I have several in different sizes. Highly recommend to anyone who wants an easy way to pick up beads and work.
I liked the new shape and was excited to get a new board, as my others were pretty well used. I was disappointed in the surface, as it had a nap that was much different than my previous boards. I could only use my bead scoop in a certain direction or my beads popped all over. The beads seemed to roll around a lot more, too. I spent lots of time digging beads out of the ditches that also seemed deeper than my old boards. Sadly, I won't be using my new board. I still love my old ones, though.
I have several of these boards and love them. Whether general jewelry work, chainmaille or getting your Kumihimo project ready -- they are awesome!!
