I have some rubber pads that I want to use as cutting board feet. What should I use to attach them? Wood glue, hot glue, something else?

Thanks

Shane

I recess the holes for the feet about 1/8th of an inch….... maybe a tad more.

Seems to really help with stability of feet.

I use the Lee Valley feet that screw in.

Love them.

Actually, I have never put feet on a cutting board, but don’t mean you can’t, and sounds like a stellar idea…There are many ways to do it, I guess, but I especially like Bruce’s idea about how he intalled his feet on his boards…..Might be worth a try on the next board I make…. I have some of those….I think…..!!!!!!!!!!

Gorilla glue works good on dissimilar materials.

I use rubber feet from Lee Valley and #6 screws to hold them in place
