My local walmart sells glass cutting boards with a smooth side and a textured side. It has rubber corner protectors and is pretty big. They even make a smaller one if you like. I think it is like 13 dollars.

Wal Mart large glass cutting board with the Integy sticker on it and Yeah Racing set up tools. Not as good as user friendly as the Hudy tools, but all told less than $40 invested

I'd like to get a piece of granite scrap from a counter top shop. Most likely from a kitchen counter top when they cut out the hole for the kitchen sink. I know granite is expensive, but what do they do with those cutouts?

I currently have a glass cutting board, but wanted to find something less fragile. MDF is cheap, but swells up and disintegrates when exposed to water. The acrylic ones look nice, but don't they get scratched easily, making it difficult to see the etched part underneath?

At the shop I worked at we glued rubber feet to the bottom and gave them to the customer as a matching cutting board.
