Tool News - Rockler Woodworking and Hardware's Protective Bench Mat


Rockler Woodworking and Hardware has introduced a Protective Bench Mat made from 100% recycled rubber tires. The 3mm thick mat measures 24” x 60” and not only protects the tops of work benches, it saves tools and projects from the scratches, dings, and dents associated with general labor tasks in a shop. The mat can be cut to size, moved from one work area to another quickly and easily and can be conveniently rolled up for storage. Users also have the option to mount the material to a surface like a piece of plywood or work bench, making a perfect, permanent assembly table.

The Recycled Bench Mat retails for $39.99 and will be available at Rockler Woodworking and Hardware stores nationwide, Rockler’s independent resellers,, or in the Rockler catalog. If a stationary, non-transferable application is desired, the mat can be glued down using Rockler’s environmentally friendly mat adhesive.
