Prevents plywood from splintering: By placing masking tape on the line you are cutting.
Hole to big: No problem just mix a little bit of glue with saw dust, fill in the hole, let dry. Re-drill the hole.
Prevent glue from oozing: Apply masking tape along side of area to be glued prevents glue from getting in unwanted places.
Need time when gluing: Try white glue instead of yellow. It dries slower.
Stripped out holes: Place one or two toothpicks in the hole, then screw in the screw, break off toothpicks.
Spread Glue on edges: Try a toothbrush. Works great, easy clean up.
Secure wood to work surface: Use clamps so wood won't slip while cutting.
When cutting: Saw blade teeth always face away from you.
Pilot holes: When cutting out circles, squares, etc. First drill hole at inside edge, large enough for saw blade.
Rusty blades: Coating blades with WD40 helps them last longer and keep them from rusting.
Matching putty: Mix saw dust from the same wood you are using with a clear epoxy.
Cut wood easier: Applying paste wax to saw blade teeth.
Screws: Will go in easier by rubbing a little paraffin wax on first.
Avoid lost caps: Store your wood glue in a mustard bottle. It has airtight twist cap, and its free.
Putty trick: Place a strip of masking tape on area to be nailed. Set heads, place putty over nail heads, remove tape.
Gel Stains: Are thicker so less running, color pigment stays suspended instead of settling on bottom so less stirring. Comes in water or oil base.
