Topic tags/keywords: floor mats anti-fatigue shop floor

Like many of you, I have a garage shop made of cement. It doesn’t take very long before my feet and back start hurting.

I think some sort of floor/anti-fatigue mats might help. What are you using and where is a good place to buy mats?

I bought a 10 pack of 3’ x 3’ mats from Sam’s Club. It has the interlocking (dovetail) edges. It’s probably not the best, but it helps and it was inexpensive.

I also saw some mats at Costco. It was at a Business Costco location.

There were two types: 1) cushioned mat that appeared to taper toward the outer edges and 2) a cushioned mat with interlocking dovetails, so you can piece several mat together.

If you are woodworking in your garage, you will find that time passes too fast. Your feet and back will tell you just how long you have been on your feet.

Rikkor and Delec, thanks!

Does anybody have any opinions about the thickness of the mats? Also, does anybody know a good, cheap source on the internet?
