Default Waffles anyone?

With the advent of the new non-slip cookies that are out on the market now, I thought that I would give a try to make my own. What I came up with are more like waffles than cookies. I went down to my local dollar store and found some non-slip jar openers (6" diameter), 4 for 1.00. I cut out the circles from some left over 3/4" MDF. I glued the pads on with contact cement. Voila! Non-slip pads to set my work on for final sanding and finishing. They work quite well and keep the material from sliding all over the place...even with an orbital sander. So for a buck and some scrap wood I was able to make a set of 4. I haven't used the real cookies so I can't compare them with what I made, but like I said, they work pretty good.

That is a great idea; guess they could be square too. They sell that stuff by the roll as drawer liner.

I like that idea, I was wondering how the shelf liner material would work to use as a router pad.

I have some cupcakes. A fellow in our WW club brought these in. They are compression discs for crash test dummies.

Never, under any circumstances, combine a sleeping pill and a laxative on the same night.
