Homemade Bench cookies

I made these to solve my problem of not having a way to router the entire edge of a project. I used 3/4 plywood and some of that grippie rubber matting. (stole it from my wife’s utensil drawer) Sprayed the quick dry contact cement and stuck the mat to both sides. Save me ten or so bucks.

Those aren’t bench cookies… Cookies are round. Those are bench chips. LOL

Why not simply lay down the grippie rubber matting on its own? Then you can return it to the utensil drawer before Wifey notices. Saves everything!

@Hal: for bench chips, I think of the chips at a casinos which are round as well ;)

Sorry I definitely did not steal your idea. I never saw your post. Innovative thinking though. I had a piece left over so maybe I will make a large one like yours.

I vote for “Bench Crackers”. Thoughts toward the name were; Bench Smores, Bench Cakes, Bench Cubes, and finally

Great idea, guess my wife will be picking up some new jar-opening pad thingies on her next trip to the dollar store. What the H.E. double hockey sticks are those things called anyway?
