Quick-Wind Cord Holder
Tired of untangling those long extension cords every time you need one? Cut notches in the ends of a scrap board, glue in a couple of 1/2-in. dia. dowel handles and reel in every cord in your shop. There’s enough room for 150 ft. of medium-duty (14-gauge) cord if you cut the holder the same size as ours.
Easy Glue Bottle Cap
A medium-duty hollow wall anchor is the best glue bottle cap we’ve found. The narrow rectangular tip seals the opening of every glue bottle we tried. And the hollow wall anchor is much larger than the cap—so it’s that much harder to lose. Or try swapping out the cap with one that closes.
Circular Saw Cutting Guide
Who needs a table saw anyway? With this cutting guide, you can make accurate 90- and 45-degree cuts with your circular saw.
Cut the guide to the size you need, checking its angles with a framing square. Screw a 4-in. cleat board on one side, positioned so that the guide will extend beyond both edges of the board you’re cutting. You’ll get a straighter cut because the saw will be supported as it begins and ﬁnishes the cut.
