Marking, cutting, and glue-up tips that you may have forgotten about
In case you were looking for a reason to putz around in your shop this weekend...
- Tip 1: Use masking tape to protect the face of the veneer that you are cutting. It will reduce splinters and tear-out significantly.
- Tip 2: Use a drinking straw to remove glue squeeze-out (2:00)
- Tip 3: Adjustable Marking Gauge. (3:00) Set a drywall screw into a flat block of hardwood, use the block to ride against the workpiece while the screw head marks the workpiece.
