Spring-type clothespins are handy holders in the shop…Glue them to the end of your bench, rafters, posts, etc. to hold pencils, notes and even as temporary storage for drill or router bits that you are using.
If you are drying your own logs, covering the end with wax (or one of the newer green Wood Sealers or emulsions) will slow drying help prevent splitting! There are other drying tips available if you search the web, but this is an old standard that works!
Save scraps of aromatic cedar and cut them into shapes to freshen drawers and closets.
In a pinch, crayons make pretty good wood filler for small holes. (Do not use crayons if you are adding a finish because most finishes will not cover over wax.)
Dowels a bit too tight to fit in a hole? Try placing them in the microwave to shrink them a bit.
Save hardwood sawdust and mix it with wood glue to make matching wood fillers.
Scrap wood crafts projects are the biggest money makers. Simply because they take very little time and you can usually make use of scrap wood left over from bigger projects, or from found wood like pallets.
First time making these type of cookies. The recipe said it would make 5 dozen… well, maybe… if you were using a teaspoon to scoop the dough. But the lemon rind flavor is nice and even tastes better the next day. Worthy to make again.
I’ve found these once before in our storage office (mostly paper). What the heck is it? Seeds? Hope so. I’d rather it be seeds that mouse droppings.
Seems like every 2 yrs I have to clean the siding on the house, especially the north side and any other spot that doesn’t see direct sunlight.
