Stay-Put Driver Bits
Try sticking a few magnets to shelf standards inside cabinets with assorted driver bits attached to keep bits organized and magnetized. A magnet in a medicine cabinet can help with storage, see why you should keep a magnet in a medicine cabinet.
Want to know how to avoid drips and messes when you apply polyurethane varnish to large surfaces or multiple pieces of trim? Try this “High-Tech Glue Bottle Poly Applicator” (an ordinary squeeze bottle) and squirts narrow beads of finish onto the boards, then rolls them out. The poly flows neatly onto the wood and rarely drips onto the floor. After practicing a few beads, you can squirt out just the right amount for each board. Check out other pro tips for using varnish.
Forget brushes when it comes to varnishing a ton of trim or big, flat areas like tabletops and cabinets. Use a 4-in. disposable roller and a nonstick, lipped baking sheet. Pour some varnish into the tray and use it just like a paint rolling tray. Keep adding varnish as you need it, but try to plan so you end up with an empty tray. When you’re through, toss the roller sleeve and let the wet varnish dry in the pan. When it dries, just peel the varnish film right out of the pan. Thanks to Aaron McKeever for this tip.
