  1. Are you a woodworker like me? If so Here are a few free tips: # while routing a piece of board with a router, route the end grain first, then with the grain to remove tearout caused by the first pass for a perfect job. # To remove dents from softwood such as pine dab with a touch of water wait a while for the wood fibers to expand and sand smooth. # While gluing end grain of wood coat the end with glue let dry a minute first to allow the end grain to absorb the glue. If you don’t do this the grain will absorb the glue after clamping staving the joint form glue causing a weak joint. Reapply more glue and clamp. # It’s best to apply a protective coating all areas of your woodprojects, including areas not seen, to prevent warping caused by one area absorbing moisture more than another. Check out my ebay store where I offer tool jig plans, free jigs and free tips. Keep checking back to see more added tips. Thanks for looking . Randy.
