FWIW, most restaurants use High Density polyethylene boards.

If it's good enough for them....

$.02

I've been using a set of Multi-color, flexible plastic mats. The color coding makes it easy to avoid cross contamination and they're so much easier to store than my collection of hardwood boards that are seeing less and less action. A set of 4 is about 10 bucks, so if I replace them even once a year it's pretty reasonable.

I have a walnut board and a plastic board. When I replaced my plastic board recently (after 5 years of use) I made sure it had a non-slip edge so that it won't slide around on my granite counter. I used to hate chasing the old one around. What a great discussion. Sorry I came in so late :) hehehe

I now have two of these:

Cutting Board - Large with Juice Wells | Buy Quality Kitchenware at PamperedChef.com

The "wells" are great for when you are coring pineapple or dicing a lot of tomatoes (especially during canning season). I have one for meat, the other for veggies and fruit.

(In Canada):

Large Cutting Board with Juice Wells : The Pampered Chef, Ltd. - Shopping)

I also made a bunch (well, 3) cutting boards by laminating the birch cut-offs from the birch floor we installed in the bedroom in May-June. I sealed them with WATCO food safe finish for butcherblock countertops (I picked that up at Lowes in the US). Cutting boards are like strainers--I can never have enough of them. I also have a 18" x 12" x 2" solid maple cutting board (homemade). I run that through the DW, clean it with bleach. It has taken a lot of abuse over the years.

If you are in Canada and decide to get one of the PC cutting boards and want to use my consultant #, PM me.

A trick to keeping the "plastic" ones from slipping around is to take a damp cloth and put it under it on the counter top.

Made of wood pulp? Sounds like sawdust to me.
