I used a jig saw with a fine blade of about 10 teeth per inch and it cut
right through commercial grade HDPE like a champ with absolutely no
problems at all. I didn't try and rush through any cuts and would back up
slightly about halfway through cutting a piece and remove the debris. I
haven't cutting an actual store bought HDPE cutting board yet.
Speaking of which...
I was in different Walmart today, found and brought home a HDPE
cutting board, 12" x 18" x 1/2" thick for about 8 bucks. Nice and flat, no
grooves or other "special" features. The brand was "American Chef" .
