Mine has four plastic straps that ride a track on both sides and snap onto the top rack. They also adjust it for height. And the center washer arm comes out somehow... I don't remember exactly how right now, but if it can go together, it can come apart

I have a large wood cutting/chopping block. I have a large plastic and a smaller plastic. I use all 3 for various purposes.
I also have a very large breadboard that I use when baking for rolling out doughs etc.

I use a wooden one for the most part but have a couple plastic ones for cutting smaller vegetables.

Wooden here too. I use it for everything although it does get well washed and occasionally re-oiled.

I have a wood cutting board that I love. I do have 3 plastic cutting boards. I dont not like 5he plastic cutting boards as they dull my knives. Do not use glass cutting boards. Glass cutting boards wreck your knives.

If it's going to the table as in cutting fresh bread, it's wood. Every other board is dishwasher safe and goes in after every use.

I have one maple board, two plastic boards and several bamboo boards. I use bamboo more than not because they're convenient and they do the least damage to my knives.
