Default Bench cookies

I just ordered a bunch of those $12 "Bench Cookies" are biggest news at AWFS - Fine Woodworking

So far I was using anti slip mats for sanding and assembly, but wrecked quite a few of them in the past as they rip quite easy. The last one was even sucked into the beltsander... what a mess

Anyhow, I'm hoping that those cookies will be as strong as they are advertised!

Anyone using them already?

I know that Fred's interested in them - he put me on to them. They look pretty cool. Sold at Rockler...

I'm concerned that Woodcraft will be making cheap chinese knockoffs of these in the near future using substandard rubber.

DANG! They look handy! I have wanted that capability many times. I just ordered some. I could find a way to bake my own but for the price it would not be worth doing by the time I glue anti slip matting to wood blocks etc.

Thanks for posting the video Roger, I was a little skeptical about these things but they look like might be the real deal.

That last pass with the router was kind of strange. I didn't have the sound on, so I don't know if he was describing what he was doing, but it didn't look like he was taking much off, and doing a climb cut. Still, they look like useful things.

I've used non-slip mats before, and they left an imprint on the wood. I didn't realise until the finish was onFor that reason, I never use them. It was a solid wood bench that it marked. I still have it.
If these cookies are made from the same non-slip material, they may well mark too.
Cheers

Yup, he was climb cutting either very shallow or not adjusted in at all. Just to clean up / smooth the profile. That way the final pass is not "lifting" the wood fibers.
