He Puts Tape Down Before Sawing… Genius!

This is such a useful woodworking hack!

If you’ve been woodworking for any amount of time, chances are, you’ve had to saw off a few wood pieces only to find the wood splintered or had a very rough edge. Now, this is a very normal thing, and you can of course just sand down the edge. But what if there was another way? A better way?

With this woodworking hack, you eliminate the need for sanding on some projects. Think about how much time that would save! For this trick, draw your line that you want to saw, and then put a piece of tape down and retrace the line. Then, saw like normal. As you can see in the video below, the edges are clean and smooth!

Another great hack we learn in the video below involves wood glue. How many times have you glued pieces together, clamped down, and then when you come back to check on it, the glue has spread out underneath the wood and dried in globs? Again, you can always clean up these corners and edges by sanding or chipping the glue away, but this neat hack eliminates the problem before the glue dries. This tip is especially useful for those inside corners that can be hard to wipe away.

Go ahead and see how to accomplish this task, as well as a few other nifty woodworking hacks in the video below! Which one is your favorite? Let us know in the comments below!
