Step 1: Got Wood?
pick your board. make it bigger than the glass you intend to cut. this one is intended for stained glass and is about 15x24 inches. If you are planning to cut glass for windows you should scale accordingly.
Step 2: Cut a Rug
Find some carpet. The short stuff they use in offices works just fine. Cut it big enough to wrap around your piece of plywood.
Step 3: Trim and Staple
cut into the corners so that they fold flat over the plywood.
Staple carpet to the board. The tighter you can pull the carpet the better.
all done. enjoy your new toy.
