What are you'all using for a Impromptu Close Up Mat for coin work ?
(Hard table tops make noise and coins bounce all over the place.)

A rubber close up mat with velvet on top . . . screams. . . "not impromptu", but rather. . . "a SHOW", a "Planned Performance."

So, in the Impromptu Department of close up coin work we have:
The Pool Table top (nice green felt)
A newspaper folded to about 16 x 18 or a tabloid size all one piece.
A large bandanna folded to 1/4 of it's size.

What else is there ?

Depending on what’s being done, the spectators hand.

Keep the coins in your hands or utilize a spectators hands for the trick

If you NEED a table surface or a mat . . . sometimes you really NEED a surface (not a hand) that is at least
10 inches x 16 inches.

Impromptu Table/Mat suggestions ?

I have used a bath towel folded in half.

Dish drying mats work well, and can be as cheap as a dollar and available in a dollar store.

I discovered another one:

A LARGE hard back book.
Maybe a coffee table type book, minus the glossy dust cover.
A cloth covered LARGE hard back book.

That's a fine approach. That worked for Dr Jaks. Smile
...to all the coins I've dropped here

Computer mouse pad works. Also some restaurant place mats are good, as well as nice restaurant cloth napkins.
