On a rectangular wooden base, a layer of foam is covered with soft suede leather: the final result is a cushion with a rigid base, easy to handle, with a slightly convex and elastic surface, on which the leaf can be placed for cutting with special knife.

Cushion and knife are mainly used for precious metal leaves to optimize the use of materials while minimizing waste. A light dusting of the leather surface with gypsum or ash obtained from rice straw minimizes the risk of adhesion of the precious metal leaf to the cushion surface during cutting.
