    I've picked up a couple of different sizes of cheap beater to mix and accommodate different size cans of paint. I stick one or the other in my cordless drill (corded would work fine too) and now I have an instant paint mixing device that does a great job of moving the paint around and getting a good consistency mixed up. #DIY #paint

    Use your Combination Square as a Marking Gauge! I've opted to drill a very small hole on my combination square ruler, just small enough for a sharp pencil lead to go through so that when I draw a line the pencil lead is not moving around. Now I can draw super accurate lines, even mortise, and tenon lines, with my combination square and get accurate results.

    I am always heading out the door with a handful of sanding discs which are often unsorted and reading the numbers on the back can be sketchy with poor printing, holes etc. The solution for this was using a piece of waste wood, like 3/4” plywood, 6 inches square and inserting dowels in it to help keep the sanding disc aligned, is a great solution. #woodworking #DIY

    Brush Cleaning Ideas: Put the still wet paint brushes in an old plastic wipe dispensing container. You can put your solvent in the container and the handle of the brush can poke out the top.

    In the past, some of the biggest challenges have been trying to figure out how to accurately mark darker woods like Walnut. I tried pencil crayons, white and yellow with poor results, then I found what they called a grease pencil, known as a china marker, which had a nice, easy to see mark, but it's very wide, so I ended up using a marking knife or, in many cases, a wide piece of painters tape and marked my lines on the tape,  then pulled the tape off after ... #woodworking

    Another thing I found the wide tape very good for was using it as a marking note area, right on the side of my tape measure. I often have a felt-tipped pen in my pocket so using it to mark tape measure sitting on the tape was easy. What I soon discovered was that once I had the measurements, I did not have to run off immediately to make the cuts as shown on the tape, but rather I could just peel off the tape and stick it on to the project for reference later on. #DIY #woodworking

    I just drilled a small hole and used some 5 minute 2-part Epoxy Glue and now I can use the bottom of my hammer to hold things like nails, or other magnetic things that help to give me a handy place to find nails, or a place to put them if I am pulling them out. #woodworking #lifehack
