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 E-Z Ancor is the best glue bottle cap we’ve found. The narrow rectangular tip seals the opening of every glue bottle we tried. And the E-Z Ancor 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.
