I'm not sure why so many of us are fascinated by woodworking tips and tricks. I love finding easier are more efficient ways of doing things and sometimes just experimenting with who to do something is reward enough. I have also learned a lot from other woodworkers and through friends at woodworking clubs and guilds, they are a warehouse of knowledge.
One of the highlights a guild I belonged to many years ago, was a kind of show and tell where some would show off their work while others show how they achieve certain woodworking techniques, like sharpening of <everything>, cutting difficult angles, and all sorts of cool and interesting ideas.
It's interesting to me how woodworking tips on one topic and lead to another tip on a different topic, even when they are not related. Like saving glue (which is not one of the topics of this article) and how that can spin itself into getting better use from paints and finishing products (which is here ... later on).
In these cases, personally, I am less concerned about the costs of replacing the materials which compared with the lost time in productivity not to mention the workflow time, which is often far more expensive than the materials. For me, it's frustrating to open a can of paint or similar finishing material and find that it's dried out or has formed such a thick top crust it almost makes the material valueless especially if you have to pick out chunks of dried paint or whatever inside before you can even use it ... ** CHECK OUT** PODCAST of Daniel Carter with Colin Knecht (approx 45 min.) listen here - http://bit.ly/2XU8HQL
I'm not sure how I got mixed up in my numbering sequence for the Subscriber Tips and Tricks, but I think I have it sorted out now ... but at least the content is the same ... and this episode doesn't have a theme because I just picked a few that really stood out for me as some of the ideas that I know I could use in my shop ...
