The trouble with most cutting boards is that they don't always come with any kind of rubbery surface on the bottom. The lack of any traction can cause the board to slide around while chopping, which can lead to some serious injuries.
But you don't need to spend a fortune on an fancy chopping board just to avoid a few nicks. Head to WonderHowTo explains that by using just a couple of rubber bands, you can stabilize your cutting board and prevent future accidents from occurring. Just slap on two rubber bands at each end of the cutting board, and be sure that the rubber bands lay flat and aren't twisted when you put them on.
