I've never managed to find the perfect shelf material. Any suggestions?

I second the velcro. Got a 3' pack on clearance at Menards for just over a dollar. I've outfitted all my shelf bows with the velcro and still have at least another 2' to go. Best material for the money, IMO.

Another vote for velcro. Industrial grade/heavy duty.

I use the felt padding with the adhesive on the back used to put under your furniture so it doesn't scratch up the floors.

I believe the toothpick is for creating a small hump on the shelf to minimize arrow contact with it. Some risers have a small hump already built in and do not need the toothpick.

First choice leather, then industrial velcro.

Velcro because it's cheap, and works great! Use the soft loop side not the hard plastic hook side
