Just got my Feb FWW. One tip mentions a shelf liner on a push stick.
The 3rd world has never heard of a shelf liner. Please give me an idea
of what it made of so can get something similar.

Ahh! The push stick had me bamboozled for a bit. Sounded like a hot dog
on a stick or summat.
They're talking about a sheet of rubber-like material with holes in it.
If you search in the router section of some suppliers, they sell
something similar for keeping flat stock from skittering around while
you rout it. Advantage being no clamps. Glue some of this to a push
stick and you now have a push stick which will not slip. The shelf liner
version is much thinner and cheaper than that sold for routing.
Slick for lining bathroom drawers with slidy bottom. Bit of sprat
adhesive in the corners and items stay pretty well in place instead of
sliding to the back.

Shelf liners work most of the time for me IF I double it up and
periodically rinse and hang them to dry.
Speaking of shelf liner, does anyone have a source for thin rolled
cork. I think this rubber shelf lining is a royal pain in my cabinets.
Dunno ... DAGS and see.
Or else just drive around New Jersey for a while ;-)
This link might work for you ... I used "cork sheet" as the search term.

This rubber "woven" material is commonly sold in numerous stores. I
have used one to hold small pieces while routing. Also used under
rugs to keep them from slipping. I've seen varying qualities of this
material. Comes in many colors. Be careful--because rubber contains
sulphur it can react with many materials and permanently "stain" them.
