why don’t you want to use the foam type drawer liner ?
(just out of curiosity)

Looked up products using that wording…and that may be a winner. Found a few options and noted reviews for Mod-Box were very positive. Thank you so much for the reply.

Neoprene rubber sheet is easy to get and usually has non-slip surface.
Can get it as smooth/textured rubber, or soft foam; they even sell materials with adhesive backing tape already applied. Stuff is ubiquitous, check Grainger, MSC, McMaster, even Amazon vendors offer it.
Best Luck.

Here….you want this stuff!
I used it in my straight-line ripping jig. Its non slip enough to negate the need for clamping a board to it. Just a long piece of melamine shelf, and I secured the material with spray adhesive. Think it was about 8 bucks a roll at Wal-Mart.

Thank you CaptainKlutz and juts FL for the additional suggestions. The surface is around 16×22 so that is a consideration. I found some toolbox liner that is 18” wide that looks promising. If it doesn’t work for this project, likely good for other uses in the shop.

Quick update. After looking into various options, I ended up going with a silicone placemat. The toolbox liner I had purchased will come in handy in the shop – already used some today as a surface for sanding.

This is the final project

Thank you for all the suggestions!
