05-25-12 – Woodworking Tips And Tidbits

Filed under: Tips & Tidbits |

Here are some more tips that I picked up over the past month or so. They come from a variety of sources including books, magazines, newsletters, online and some from personal experience.

1. To crosscut large sheets of plywood on the tablesaw clamp a board under the plywood and use it as an auxiliary fence which rides against the left edge of the tablesaw’s top.

2. As a rule of thumb, the denser the wood, the more it moves.

3. Rub a shelled walnut over scratches on wood to cover them up.

4. Use a comb to hold small nails when hammering them.

5. When drilling in drywall use a folded sticky note stuck below the hole to be drilled to catch the drywall dust.

There are more Woodworking Tips and Tidbits located here.

Got a woodworking tip that you want to share? Let me know and I’ll add it in a future issue of Tips and Tidbits!
