Non-skid Miter Saw Table

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.

I know that using a non-slip pad with my router works great to hold a workpiece steady, so I thought I would try the same trick with my miter saw. I found that an inexpensive rubber kitchen mat (made for lining shelves) made a perfect non-slip surface.

When cutting short pieces, I put a strip on the left side only. For longer pieces, I put some on both sides to keep the workpiece level. Just roll the mat up when it's not needed.
