I got the chance to try out Rockler’s new Bench Cookies over the weekend.
Bench Cookies are like hockey pucks with rubber faces. They act like a routing mat to keep parts from sliding around as you sand or rout them.
The difference is that Bench Cookies lift the part up about 1” off the work surface so that you have clearance for bearing bits or cut throughs.
They work surprisingly well, I sanded and routed parts on them with complete confidence. I even covered them in sawdust to see if that changed the effect. It does a tiny bit, but I piled dust on them. They still worked.
