Sorbothane is good stuff -- it would work very well between a piece of
butcher block and the top of the cabinet (or better yet, a piece of granite
countertop). 1/4" would be thick enough for that use. But I wouldn't want
to cover the sides of my filing cabinet with sorbothane. It feels kind of
slimy, and if a large surface area remains exposed, it's very difficult to
keep clean. I'd want to glue a piece of wood to the sorbothane. I think
the car vibration damping material (which has an aluminum surface) is
probably good enough, and a lot less trouble to install.
