Recently make a table with cup holders? Have a little volara/ensolite and some spray glue left over? Make your own DIY bench cookies:





Tip: drill a 1/2" to 3/4" hole through the middle of the puck and you can slide them onto a peg board hanger for easy storage:

Let me google that for you

yes & more - the commercial ones had padded "grippers" that use friction to hold a workpiece in place for tasks like edge treatment, routering, trimming, sanding, staining, painting, finishing etc. They're handy to have around.

Great tip. I have thought about buying some for use while sanding but was unsure if they were really good enough grip to use with a router.

I added a set of the blue bench cookies from Rockler onto my order about a year ago when they were on sale. They do work really well, even for router work. I haven't tested these homemade ones out yet with a router but they do the job for painting & finishing work.

Nice T!
I made some very similar to your's only instead of a base I just sharped the bottom end and pushed it into the earth, base might be more handy though.
