So, I’ve been eyeing these silly things for about two years now wondering how would I use them and would it really be worth having. Well, I finally picked up a set at Rockler on sale for $8 last week and decided to use them for finishing a top to an end table. My old Unisaw serves double duty as a workbench/finish assembly talbe in my garage so I put down newspaper and the table top sits on the cookies. What I noticed was now nice it is to lay down wipe on poly on the surface and just be able to go around the edges without picking the piece up and having to worry about the edges sticking to the paper. Having it elevated a little bit was really kind of nice. This is the only job I had for them so far, but I will say that I dropped one from chest high and it landed on the concrete on it’s edge and didn’t break. I’m sure I’ll be able to find more uses for these in my shop. I kinda’ like ‘em.
