If you use high end knives, then, plastic and non-wood boards should be your last choice. If you want a good board that will hold up, I would go with bamboo. Its durable. Can take a lot of abuse and is easy to clean, not to mention they tend to be a little cheaper than traditional hardwood boards such as oak.

Good Luck. :)

@sgsvirgil. Many thanks for your advice and recommendations. There are cheap bamboo boards at the supermarket; would they be just as good as the pricier ones? I have no idea about these things. Am waiting for your further advice!
In general, wood is going to be easier on your expensive knives than boards made from other material. There are pros and cons to every board regardless of material.

As for the bamboo boards at the grocery store, if you are just looking for a board to beat on with every day use, a bamboo board from the grocery store should work just fine.

There are several web based sellers that offer a variety of boards made from a variety of materials where you can look over and compare prices. Simply google "cutting boards" and you will get a variety of hits.

Good luck. :)
