You know? I would try using double sided tape first with a 3D cut. Since getting a vacuum, I actually made a new table top from 1" MDF, and triple coated it with rustoleum. I haven't needed a hold down since..

If I'm doing a lithopane, or a carving where the router will be running for hours, I use 3M tape, and just stick the piece to the spoilboard.

Maybe if you try a piece that way, you might find that you make your life easier, and allow for a more seamless Vacuum experience..

You'll find that the black box will hold quite well on a 4x4.
