Five Woodworking Project Tips – SAHM Version

TedsWoodworking Plans and Projects

So I have a friend who is genuinely into small and not-so-small woodworking projects. He is the type of person who is sincerely excited about mitre joints and routers and some kind of lathe which is better than any other kind of lathe. He borrows our garage as a workshop occasionally for big pieces, and he did once help me build a chicken coop.
Long exposure to this man has enabled me to pick up a few tips which might be useful to other people who live alongside woodworking designs and projects but who tend to pick up the pieces rather than screw them together.
1. The magnet-bag. So simple, so brilliant. Little nails strewn round the doorway. Put a big refrigerator-magnet in a plastic bag. Pick up the little nails with the magnet through the bag. Invert the bag round the nails, remove the magnet. Return nails to DIY enthusiast and magnet to refrigerator door. Voila!
2. An old vacuum cleaner running next to sandpapering jobs. A new vacuum cleaner would work just as well but I don’t always trust my woodworking friend to treat my equipment with proper respect. When he is sanding wood-filler or sometimes paint, the fine dust gets EVERYWHERE. And he treads it around too. Answer: keep the old vacuum cleaner running next to him for as long as he’s sanding. Most of the dust goes right in the bag.
3. First-aid kit, topped up with extra antiseptic and all shapes and sizes of band-aids. Yes, it’s obvious, but the number of times I haven’t been able to find a band-aid in the kitchen drawer quite quickly enough. Once there really was blood on the carpet.
4. Problem: the DIY enthusiast has left some sort of little brush behind and comes asking for any kind of small brush. (For glue.) Solution: my old toothbrush. (It was time I got a new one.) Apparently it worked very well and was nice and easy to handle. And by the way, guys, silver eye-pencil is great for marking up dark wood when you’ve got no chalk with you. Just try not to use ALL of it.
Fifth tip? Choc-chip cookies. Keep them with the first aid kit. When it all starts going wrong, they never fail to lift the spirits a little.
Hope these help anyone else out there who aspires to make life a little easier in the world of woodworking.
