Use a Plastic Chair Mat for Finishing Wood and Glue-Up of Projects

Finishing on a plastic office mat An old plastic office carpet protection mat can make a great and easy to clean base for your finishing projects.

Instead of throwing away the old plastic carpet protector mat under my desk chair, I cut it into squares for use during finishing and gluing. If you turn the mat upside down, those little plastic spikes are perfect for suspending your project above the bench so excess finish or glue has a place to pool. The spikes won’t leave marks, and the mats are easy to clean with a power washer. Or, just flex them to loosen the dried buildup.
