Nice! I like the file folder for the sandpaper organization. Would work well in my shop.

Never heard of the salt trick. I have on
occasion clipped the heads off of wire
nails after pounding them into on piece.
The clipped shanks press into the other
piece when clamps are applied and prevent
it from swimming on the glue.

Good tips, Joe. I liked the glue/sawdust and dowel marking tips! Thanks for sharing.

I like that salt trick. I did that file folder thing a couple of years ago. It’s a great way to keep sandpaper organized and in one place.
