Whipping eggs on a wooden board?

Come on Joe, nobody ever did that. Oh yes, my friends, Lillie whipped her eggs the REALLY old-fashioned way, using a simple loop whisk and a flat wooden board. Well, it wasn’t totally flat. It had a shallow depression carved in the center where the liquid whites would sit before she applied her formidable elbow grease. But that’s how she — and I presume many generations of Swedish bakers before her — did it. I saw it with my own eyes, so I swear that it’s true. If only I could find a picture of one of these things on Google image search. But just try searching “egg board” and see what you get!
