I thought I would start offering quick woodworking tips, and try to do them more often. Running Shepherd Tool & Supply by myself can sometimes be a little overwhelming, but I really want to share some of my experience on a larger scale.
I was doing a glue-up the other day and became frustrated trying to protect the already sanded legs on a table base. The long side is about 60”, so I had trouble reaching both ends to keeps my scraps in place for pads. I managed to get it done but it wasn’t until I was unclamping the next day before it hit me. I had seen someone a while back using magnets in their pads to hold them in place. I cut up some small pads from leftover lumber in my shop and in minutes I came up with these.
