I saw some of those at Rockler some time back. I was going to buy a couple of packs of them but the store clerk told me that if I was buying them for the wood design that he would not recommend them. The woodgrain pattern was just a thin paper overlay on the rubber mat and he said it would not last long at all.

If yours are a better quality I would be interested in buying a few. What do you think of the quality??

Hard to say on quality. They look real nice but are a little more slippery than the gray ones that are visible in my pic also. It makes them easier to sweep though. I’ll see how they hold up and report back. I guess even if the top wears off, no big deal. $12.00 lol

The edges are curled up a little and still haven’t laid flat. I keep catching the edge with my foot. My other ones were flat after a couple hours. I’ll see in another day or so, but I’m thinking I probably wouldn’t recommend them. Too bad.

How many did you get for $12? You can get the solid color 2’x2’ anti-fatigue interlocking mats (same as those in your picture but without the wood grain) at places like Amazon for around $20 – for 6 mats and 12 borders… and I’ve seen them on sale for even cheaper at places that sell exercise equipment/sporting goods. I happened to run across about 40 of them for free and use them all over the shop.

Cheers,
