Do IT yoURSelF 'nOn-SkID BooSTerS'

A quick, easy, HELPFUL one today, my friends! When you need to prop something up off your work surface to paint it, or work on it, these little guys are VERY handy to have around.
Grab four blocks of wood (I cut down some old wood flooring) -- All cut to the same size
A roll of non-skid shelf liner.
Adhesive -- Spray adhesive (permanent method) works great, or if you're wanting to choose something a bit more 'friendly'...brush on a white glue or even wood glue -- dry time will just be longer.
Cut your shelf liner to the same size as your block -- Cut out two pieces for each block because you'll need to secure it to the top AND the bottom.
Do up different sets in different sizes, if you like. They don't take up any room to store. Your piece stays put while you're working on it, and they make it very easy to paint or stain edges and things.
Toss 'em in a drawer and you're ready to go. ENJOY!
