Ha! Cookie races indeed! The lathe application looks the most exciting, especially if you have a variable speed lathe and turn it up a bit—hope your faceshield is on!

Loved it Gary, very creative. My favorite was the cookie flip. I am often indecisive. I will have to put that one in to use.

Good video. If you want to mix it up a little, Lowes carries orange bench cookies. They are branded Bench Dog, but carry the Rockler copyright in the fine print.

Certainly, I would have never dreamed of these possibilities for bench cookies. Who know cookie races may someday be an Olympic event. :)

Nice video, Gary.

Now is it just me, or do any of you Jocks have cookies that just don’t seem to work as advertised? Dont hold things down that well … even light sanding sends the board skittering off … do I need to do something to them first? Buy them an adult beverage, talk sweet to them?
