Make Miter Saw Table Non-skid

There are times when it's difficult to hold a workpiece steady on a miter saw. Crown molding in particular wants to slip away from the fence when I stand it up on edge.

Taking a cue from my routing experiences, I know that using a non-slip router pad will hold a workpiece steady. So now when I need a non-slip surface, I use an inexpensive alternative. I simply use a roll of the thin rubber shelf liner and cut it to fit on the base of my miter saw.

I put a strip on the left side when I'm cutting short pieces. And when I'm cutting long pieces, I put some of the shelf liner material under the outer end to help keep the workpiece level. Just roll it up for storage when it's not needed.
