i thought about that a little, but i would worry about what kind of plastic that is any time it got hit by a laser running through the material. and somehow i don’t think there’s an MSDS that comes with it.
I end up making my own by driving a bunch of screws through a flat piece of wood. I use 3 screws spread out over the base of what I’m finishing.
My reasoning for this approach is that I want the stand to contact with the piece I’m finishing as little as possible. The screws make for a nice fine point that is very hard to see when I throw on wood finish. I usually finish the bottom of the piece, let it dry and then turn it over and finish the top so it any fine points you can barely see.
