Subscriber Submitted Woodworking Tips and Tricks - Episode 10

I'm not the world's best knot tier, and the few knots that I learned and used many, many years ago take me too long to recall how to tie, so I usually end up making a couple of "granny knots" and hope for the best. Jim from Columbia had a good idea that I can really use, and that is to use

a small amount of CA glue, just a drop or so, then spritz with some accelerator, and now that knot will never come loose ... but because you can use CA glue on it, which many of you know is a very brittle kind of glue ...

Router Table Workflow Upgrades

The router table has become a mainstay in most woodworking shops, but there is often some important detail in setting the router and table up each time.
