I don't make bread that often, but I did get a marble board for when I do. A whole lot easier to clean than a wooden board. Less sticking.

Countertop

Unfortunately, I have a wooden countertop and I get a LOT of sticking, mostly because I like "wetter" free form breads and I dont like heavily flouring the countertop because of this. I inevitably end up having to scrape the dough off with a metal spatula.

formica counter top, easy to clean. I also use a dough scraper to portion rolls and scrape the counter top. It is sorta like a putty knife.

I use both - depending on how much dough.

Ooops...I guess I'm not awake yet. I was thinking pie dough. I use a pastry cloth to roll it out.

I use my wooden pastry board. It was a wedding

present 24 years ago. Every time I use it I think of the cousin who gave it to me so I guess I'll always use it.

Counter is made of tile and cutting board is a tad too small, so I use the dining room table
