Hello there you amazing person you! This is my Instructable on how to make your own bench cookies. What is a bench cookie you ask? Well, basically they provide a raised slip resistant platform for wood working projects. Bench cookies raise your project off the surface you are working on and hold it steady so that you can paint, stain, wax, cut, nail, screw, and glue with ease. Normally a set of these will cost around $13, but I made these for $1.07. Let's get our hands dirty!
Alright, so all I used was some scrap 2x4s leftover from making my workbench, some of that anti-skid material that is put in cabinets and drawers to keep things from sliding around (this is where the $1.07 comes in), Elmer's Glue All, and some paint. That's it! I'm sure that you can use other materials as you see fit. Perhaps some rubber weather stripping or stronger glue would work better.
I used just a few tools; a pen, a handsaw, clamps, and some sandpaper.
