I cut small squares of cushioned white vinyl shelf liner and attached to the face of the clamp with 3M spray adhesive.  After it dried a couple of hours I used a sharp utility knife to trim away the excess.  So if I ever clamp finished wood, there will be less chance that it will be marred in the clamp while drilling.

I haven't tried cushioning yet, but it is a great idea. I have had slight impressions in soft wood when using my Kreg clamps and Kreg jig.  

In stores where they sell the round felt pads, with stickem on one side, for chairs legs and table legs, they often sell similar self-sticking pads to protect wood floors and tables, but the pads are a black rubber and they prevent sliding.  Would those work better?

Try it and report back.

Before all the varieties of pads became available, 

a piece of an old ''inner tube'', cut-to-size and glued in place, worked very well.

The rubber inner tube material provides excellent slip resistance.

Miter Saw Recommendation

I’m looking to upgrade my miter saw. I’m willing to invest a good amount of money to get one with the precision pocket hole joinery requires. Would anyone like to offer a recommended model?

New Kreg 720Pro

I saw the video Kreg put out for this new jig and had high hopes for it.

I purchased one today and am very disappointed with it.

First the docking station is extremely cheap. The plastic is pathetic. A Lego has more…

Not Pleased With Pocket Hole Construction

Several months ago, I purchased the Kreg K4MS so that I could build the Lego Table as outlined on the companion "buildsomething" web site which exclusively uses pocket hole construction.  I have considerable experience with conventional…
