In my free time, I enjoy dumpster diving. This is especially true around the May/June timeframe when all the college kids are moving out of their dorms. You wouldn’t believe the stuff you find! So far, I’ve found and fixed up 7 vacuum cleaners which will find new homes with friends/family first, and then with some new students when they move back in the fall :-)
Anyway, I found a PILE of mousepads, and thought to myself “I have to be able to use these for something”. Here’s what I came up with: I glued them back to back with some silicone caulk, and then cut them into quarters. They make FANTASTIC low-profile (and flexible!) bench cookies to keep your work from sliding on the bench. Each pair of mousepads can be cut into whatever size you want.
Just thought I’d pass on the success!
