...Here's a holiday health and safety tip- make sure your wife is totally cool with you cutting up her yoga mat. What can I say, it made an excellent table protector.

Harbor Freight sells toolbox non-slip mats in rolls for pretty cheap too. Not as cushiony as yoga mats (which I love as a surface), but a bit grippy-er. Good stuff!

Great tip! I've been using these for awhile now, they work great as a router pad, and grip the body in place really well.

PDX Rich,

The Harbor Freight mats work great but there's a catch, those mat WILL etch the pattern of the mat on a Lacquer finish. It's good to use them them for Polyurethane finishes or raw wood.

Good point! I tend to lay down clean white t-shirts over this to manage the imprint issue while a finish is curing (certainly not when still wet though!).

I have great results from a yoga mat, and I don't even need to cut it up. When I get done, i go into a Downward Dog, and renew my vitalenergy! :)

Ha, I use yoga mats all the time.  I use a whole mat usaually, protects the kitchen counter when you need to use it as a workspace as well as protecting the gtr ;)
