    There was a thread on this a few months back. I think the concensus was....buy a new one, and cut up the warped one to use the unwarped part.

    Chop it up in smaller pieces and toss the bad part out. Buy new one. It's an excuse to go to a fab store, as if we needed an excuse.

    Some have had success with warped cutting board by using a hair dryer. Others have lay it out in the sun let it get hot and put a lot of books on it. Here is a link it may help.

    Hi Mommomjoann,

    You can cut up the old one. Use the smaller useable areas for cutting and trimming smaller pieces. You can turn the small piece while it's laying on the second.

    Also, you can use covered as purse or carry bag bottoms.

    Glad you were able to get a new cutting mat.

    Leave it on black pavement when it's hot out for a few hours. :) You could still do it even though you got a new one, if it works, then you have a back-up to bring to classes or retreats etc... :)
