I won't get into the discussion about Britney - although that would be a fine choice in my opinion... Maybe Shania? - I don't think my wife would go for either one, though

The cutting board was only about $6 or $7, so I think I will give it a shot - It will definitely be better than carrying my car to a buddy's pit to check it.

Thanks for all the input!

No not really if you are into the pre-pubesence idol thing. I was thinking of pit babes and porn stars myself.

I bought a 12x18 cutting board at Wally World, but I haven't opened it yet - it can go back if this is a bad idea. I would think the only real concern would be about it staying flat, and one of this board's key points is it's resistance to warping.
Yup, i use the same thing. Is it the clear tempered glass kind? I got mine at linens n things only 7 bucks. I also took the rubber feet off mine so it lays flat on any surface. I also got the smaller one 12x15 i think for the track.

You can purchase a 4ft x 8ft sheet of (MDF) or (MDO) at most home improvement centers for about $25. You can make several boards from this. It is flat and hard and will not warp. Its used for cheap cabinat cores or to create templates for people who creating a wood working pattern for routers.

Medium Density Fiber Core Hardwood Plywood (MDF) and Medium- and High-Density Overlay Plywood (MDO and HDO) will both work. The difference is that the MDO is lighter and smoother and easier to carry around.

Some home improvement centers will even rip it for you so you can place it in your car.

If you know someone with a table saw, it cuts like butter and should take no more than 10min to rip into several boards.

If you want a bullet proof board, use MDF or MDO and then put the sticker on board. Cover or screw down a piece of plexi-glass to the board and it should last you forever. When the plexi-glass gets ugly or too dirty, simply replace the plex-glass.
