Cutting Table

Post by em555 » Tue Mar 07, 2017 2:54 pm

Afternoon,

I currently have a large 8x4ft cutting table with an MDF surface. It works great however everything is being covered in small pieces of wood from cutting into the table and it's starting to become a bit of a pain, especially with art prints and more delicate materials.

I'd thought about covering the surface with a large piece of perspex however assume the result would be the same.

Has anyone any suggestions or recommend another material? I'm going to be adding a second table of the same size and therefore cutting mats wouldn't be a cost effective solution.
Any help would be appreciated!

Thanks,
Chris

Rianyl from Rolls-Roller has been a popular product. I buy these in rolls (heh) and cut to length.

Pretty sure it's available at every Rolls-Roller dealer: http://www.rollsroller.com/our-products ... tting-mat/

It's a silicone like, 5 mm thick transparent marterial. Even tho they claim it's self healing it is not like the live organic material OLFA uses for their cutting mats which actually heals and fuses back together.
