I’ve been doing some research on getting a self healing mat with grid for the surface of the craft table. So far the best deal is getting one off Amazon. It’s a Rhino Self Healing Mat. It’s 4’x8’ and 1/4” thick. It’s often used in sign shops for cutting vinyl so can handle wear and tear with rotary cutters and exacto knives. Useful for all craft projects as makes fabric cutting, foam cutting, leather and other craft projects easier to work on in a space more precisely and being it’s self healing it doesn’t get all gouged up like a wood table or HDPE surface.

Of course here’s with the topic of how to fund this. Very open to ideas of funding as we had to trash the surface for the table from the last space so we need to look at how to fund quickly and all. Crowdfund? Take to QGM? Thoughts?
