So I think I want a nice little board to roll out GP so I'm not getting out my massive mat everytime I wanna do a flower or two - and it'll give me a hard surface to cut the flowers with.

Anyway I'm between (2). Suggestions?

The Greenboard - not grooves for wiring.

Celboard- grooved and holed. Easier?? I haven't done a lot of wired flowers...

I have the cell board and LOVE it! One side has the grooves and holes for making leaves and mexican hat method flowers/buds. The other side is completely smooth and perfect for rolling and cutting everything else. If you think you will ever get into wired flowers it is worth it because it is very all purpose.

I found some oval shaped Corian boards at "The Christmas Tree Shop" for around $10. Nice smooth surface. Worth shopping around to find a smooth board. I have a cel board, but the surface is smaller than I want.

If you need one that doesn't specialize in wired flowers and don't want to spend a lot of money, you might want to look at the Oneida 16" cutting board at Bed Bath and Beyond. It has a smooth surface and sells for $12.99. You could also use your 20% off coupon for even more savings.

good idea Ren! Thanks! I might have to stop on my way home and get one of those- just to hold me off for a minute! I have a $5 coupon too!

I use the celboard and I like it. I wish they had a much much bigger board though. I also use a marble slab pastry board to roll out some accents.
