Cutting boards are usually HDPE (High Density PolyEthylene). If you are interested in using a plastic, use UHMW (Ultra High Molecular Weight polyethylene). It's more expensive but still affordable in the sizes that you would require. We shim skylights weighing many tons with the stuff. It is available, among other places, at McMasterCarr.com
