I also have this posted in the home section, but thought I'd get better response from my fellow quilters!

So long story short, hubby and I are moving. There is a huge shed in the back yard that hubby says is mine all mine!   So of course its going to be the crafting lair. I am in the process of cleaning it up and I want to make the workbench it currently has into my fabric cutting table... I basically want to be able to cut ANYWHERE on this bench (it stretches the length of one wall).

So my question is, has anyone heard, or know of any sort of self healing spray... rubber spray, hell, even bar resin I could put down on the bench to make it so I can use a rotary cutter on it?

My first thought was the stuff for spray on truck bed liners but I figure I would make huge cuts in that stuff on top of its textured.

My next though is bar resin?? would it scratch/cut? Plus how exspensive would that be??

I'm trying a product called Plasti-dip and hopefully that'll work.

Any other ideas?

I have no idea how your ideas will/will not work.  I'd be a little concerned about not only how the rotary blades will treat the "cutting" table, but how the various surfaces might treat the blades.  You might have to experiment.  I guess I'm a little squeamish.

They do make some really big cutting mats that might work, too.

One is less than three.
I can resist anything...except temptation :P

you should look at this..I use it and love it..you can make the puzzle pieces work in any shape way or size you want and you can add to, turn pieces, and do whatever you want.
