Great Work Surface
for Basket Makers
"Self-Healing" Cutting Mats are 1.5mm thick, double-sided with green base and yellow grid lines for
detailed cutting, measuring and aligning. Superior mats protect your work surface! PLUS, you can use
the grid marks on the mat instead of spending time marking and measuring stakes for your basket; weave
accurately and save time when squaring up bases and checking diagonals! Available in 4 sizes. Rotating Mats are especially handy—just work on one side of
your basket, rotate the mat, and continue around without moving
your project or your body. All mats (including the Rotating Mats)
are lightweight for convenience and portability. Mats are great for taking to workshops and classes.
