I have used the Bench Cookies several times and really like them. I recently used the Cookie Cones (with the cookies) when applying polyurethane to both sides of a small door. The tips of the plastic cones caused marks and dents in the wood (birch plywood). I kept the door on the cones while I did the light sanding between coats of poly, which might have been the problem; i.e. pushing down on the door. From now on, I will set the wood lightly on the cones and not use the cones when sanding or rubbing down the finish.

At just a few bucks, no shop should be without a couple sets of Bench Cookie Cones. I've used the Bench Cookies since they were introduced several years ago with great success, and these are a great addition. The small plastic "pyramids" are prone to tip, slide, and fall off the bench. The weight, grip and large footprint of the Bench Cookie combined with the superior design of the Cone make this an ideal solution for supporting work pieces while applying finish.

These cones are great. They work perfectly with the bench Cookies. The point isn't to sharp to marr the wood and they fit snugly on the Bench Cookie holding both in place. You can even stack one cookie on top of another to raise the project higher off your work bench and they still stay in place without slipping. I bought the painters pyramids also and they tend to slip around and aren't as stable as the cone/cookie combination.

I was recently applying some rub on vanish to some shelves for a bookcase I'm building and noticed the "Painters Pyramids" I was using were traveling all over my workbench, and not providing the support that I wanted. While good for what they were intended, I needed something better for this application. Since I have the Festool workbench this seemed the perfect solution sticking the Bench Cookie extensions through the holes provided and laying the work on top of the cones secured in this manner.

These cones are a great addition to an already very useful product. There is not much to them and they are inexpensive but you should get a set for your Bench Cookies.
