Get your studs marked without climbing the ladder.
Whenever I’m installing drywall, I mark wall stud locations on the ceiling so I can see where the studs are when I screw on the drywall. But going up and down the ladder several times to mark the ceiling is a real drag. To save wear and tear on my legs, I duct-taped a carpenter’s pencil to a long stick. Now I can mark the wall stud locations from the floor. — Timothy Wurtz
