I picked up a five pack of large Nitrile work gloves at Home Depot. Had seen a positive blurb in “Family Handyman” or Shop Tips” about them. If you wear gloves when woodworking, try them. They’re great! With a tight fit, you can pick up tiny brads.

For what its worth I have used these and brand like them over the years for various things, including rebuilding rear ends and transmissions, brake jobs, cleaning in the solvent tank, but also for woodworking, and finishing jobs.

The better brands hold up well and you can get multiple uses out of them if you want to, the HF ones are ok for lighter work, but dont hold up as well in my experience and tend to tear if exposed to rougher jobs…they are nice when require some tactile feel though.
