Where to buy thick and large plastic cutting board?

Hey guys,

Looking to see where I might acquire a thick and large plastic cutting board, preferably with a juice catching ridge?

I've done some research and I think HDPE (high density polyethylene) is what I'm looking for since it is normally food safe. However, when I look at raw manufactures of HDPE, it seems crazy expensive! (unless they have scrap pieces they'd like to sell??). They don't seem to list actual measurements so when I see 4x8 (HDPE Sheets / Puck Board / Starboard - Greyco Products) I assume it is in feet since the price is so high?

I tried looking on line to no avail and dropped by the Gourment Warehouse today but they mostly carry the Epicurean boards and not much else.

Suggestions?

How big and how thick?
What are you primarily using it for?

For catching juices, you thinking about when you have a turkey or a prime rib?

I've been using a San Jamar 18x24" cutting board, it's commercial equipment. I've been using it for 4+ years now.
Still in amazing shape.
Zero complaints.

On the very rare occasion you need to catch juices, put the board on a sheet pan as your drip tray.
No specialized equipment required.

Maybe about 1/2" thick and about 24" wide and 18" tall?

By juice catcher, I mean it has a routed surface so that it will catch some light splattering of meat juice. Nothing crazy.

Where did you buy the San Jamar from and how much?

I will get to making some phone calls to the plastic manufactures...sometime soon, haha.

Thanks for the replies thus far!
