Im about to build a lot of cutting boards for friends and family for the upcoming holidays and was wondering if anyone could reccomend a good place to order the rubber feet and screws in bulk.

Thanks.

I don’t use rubber feet, so I can’t help you there. I use a type of foot that I get at one of the local big box stores (Menards here in Michigan). They aren’t cheap, but they really work well. I think they run about $4ish for a pack of eight. They are called “Slipstick Grippers”. I use the 1 1/4”size. They have a hard circular piece with a peel and stick surface and have a ring of a softer gripper material on the working side. They come with screws and I do use these to attach them to the boards (have to run them in to make the threads and then cut them shorter).

Here is a picture of the feet on a recent maple / walnut board:

I would look for stainless steel screws.

Kazooman,
Those can be an option, I’ll keep my eye out for something like that too. Rockler has sets but they are too expensive.

Nice looking board BTW.

Art,

Stainless would be best I agree.

I went to the big box stores last week looking for rubber feet, all they have is furniture glides. I did get these from Amazon. I’m not to the point of mounting them yet, but they are looking like they should do well. I saw other sizes as well.

I’ve used the ones from rockler, pretty expensive for what they are but can’t seem to find any anywhere else.

Try electronics stores. They use rubber feet for computer cabinets, stereos,etc.

I have been using ‘Rubber Headed Piano Tacks’
I use the 1/2” black or brown and pre-drill the hole. I believe I use 1/8” drill bit.
I some times need to nip off the nail so it does not come thru the top.
Cost is less than $2 per dozen!
