ELMER’S CORNER: Take Finish to the Mat

Found in Dec. issue of Woodworker’s Journal

In stead of throwing away the old plastic carpet protector mat used under a desk chair, cut it into squares for use during finishing and gluing. If you turn the mat upside down, those little plastic spikes are perfect for suspending your project above the bench so excess finish or glue has  a place to pool. The spikes won’t leave marks, and the mats are easy to clean with a power washer. Or, just flex them to loosen the drier buildup
