9 Super-Simple Small Shop Hacks Photos by Rob Brown Carpet padsSections of carpet are great for protecting workpieces from getting scratched while being worked on.Sanding and assembling are prime times for picking up dents and scratches, but carpet can help protect against this sort of thing.
I have about 10 pieces of carpet cut to 28" × 16", and I use them almost every day.You may be able to find some excess carpet at a carpet retailer.Ask nicely, and you might be rewarded with some plush, colourful extra pieces to add character and function to your shop.
