    You’re an absolute genius, what about a dowling hack? Last week I made a pine bench seat all with dowel joints, turned out beautiful only the dowels on top weren’t all inline.

    Your good sir!

    I have flattened nails tips to a spade shape and made drill bits for small hole s



  11. vilod on May 1, 2022 at 6:55 pm

    Good tips. Here’s one for you, lose the music.



  12. Alexander Wardrope on May 1, 2022 at 6:55 pm

    Good stuff straight forward no fannying about showing fancy marking off and stuff.



  13. Robert Kerby on May 1, 2022 at 6:55 pm

    Well done!



  14. bosunashley on May 1, 2022 at 6:57 pm

    Some ole solutions here. I’m 75 and my grandma taught me the toothpaste trick. Glad it’s still a handy one!



  15. dennis minks on May 1, 2022 at 6:57 pm

    I used to not have many clamps. Depending on the size of pieces needing clamps, I cut pvc pipe then cut the ring in a single place parallel to axis. For more holding power, cut the ring wider.



  16. Scott Pankhurst on May 1, 2022 at 6:58 pm

    so… someone who has the ability cut wedges doesn’t have clamps?



  17. Paul Bussey on May 1, 2022 at 6:58 pm

    I can see me using every one of these hacks at some point, although I’d probably only use the toothpaste in an absolute emergency! Thanks very much, I’m now subscribed and looking forward to seeing more from you.

    If you don’t have wood filler or sawdust, raid your kids pencil sharpener. Take the sawdust from a pencil sharpener and keep in a small jar for hole filling. Mix with Elmers regular or wood glue, and you have a small amount of wood filler.



  19. whoopazz on May 1, 2022 at 7:00 pm

    2020 anyone?



  20. Super Marrio on May 1, 2022 at 7:04 pm

    Love your DIY videos, unlike some videos you actually tell what you are doing throughout the video, they just show



  21. William Nelson on May 1, 2022 at 7:05 pm

    Everyone drinks Malt on Monday,, Wine on Thursdays because of the sake on wendsday start our Fridays with Mimosas . NOW what I do on Saturdays makes no sense . So Sundays I go sprint 🏃‍♂️ and all day drink healthy Bloody Mary’s with cucumbers 🥒 vodka extra spinach 😋



  22. Tom McCall on May 1, 2022 at 7:06 pm

    Very useful…thank you.



  23. Starr Myres on May 1, 2022 at 7:06 pm

    Just go to the Woodglut website if you want to do it yourself.



  24. scott wright on May 1, 2022 at 7:07 pm

    I did service calls about 20 years ago for a stair company. Filled a couple holes in some white balusters. I felt guilty and thought for sure the homeowner would smell it.



  25. artlm2002 on May 1, 2022 at 7:07 pm

    Good content, annoying background music.



  26. Short Stories By Jerry on May 1, 2022 at 7:08 pm

    I like the drilling straight holes with the two blocks of wood. Thanks. I always get in a hurry and do sloppy work.



  27. Don B on May 1, 2022 at 7:09 pm

    In the UK we call joiners "chippys" one of our traditional meals is fish and chips which we buy from a "chippie" and we like lashings of salt and malt vinegar on our fish and chips. Having watched your brilliant tip with the salt and explaining the weirdness of the English language I feel hungry. Not many wood working tips can have that affect on me😂serious note, liked and subscribed you have a great presentation manner.

    Cheap Helpful Hack-
    —Buy a few self tapping metal screws and cut off the heads, keep them as you would a drill bit in your pouch.—

    I havent found many things they wont punch a hole in. Unfortunately my truck has taken a beating from them 😉



  29. tootz1950 on May 1, 2022 at 7:14 pm

    Love the shims for clamps tip, thanks.



  30. Just Cuz on May 1, 2022 at 7:15 pm

    Sharp ideas. You married?



  31. Trevor Robinson on May 1, 2022 at 7:17 pm

    Love the no clamps hack.



  32. Picksalot on May 1, 2022 at 7:17 pm

    I particularly liked the clamp hacks. Thanks



  33. yobryan88 on May 1, 2022 at 7:20 pm

    With my wood glued and salted 😅🤣😂



  34. Bradley Gallagher on May 1, 2022 at 7:21 pm

    There are projects on how to do this on the Woodglut website.



  35. IDEAS XYZ on May 1, 2022 at 7:22 pm

    wow



  36. Subbir Rahman on May 1, 2022 at 7:22 pm

    I guess you were a good mathematician. 🙂 Loved those hacks.



  37. bfjb70 on May 1, 2022 at 7:25 pm

    I’m glad people have mostly stopped now with the inane low background music. It never ever adds interest or value, just annoying.



  38. Katie White on May 1, 2022 at 7:25 pm

    I’m just starting out with wood working on pallets, and I’m loving your info and hacks! Thanks!



  39. shanes maine shop on May 1, 2022 at 7:26 pm

    Lots of great tips.



  40. Brian Dixon on May 1, 2022 at 7:26 pm

    O



  41. Dirk Dykstra on May 1, 2022 at 7:28 pm

    I’ve always wondered if the wax paper would work when gluing but I’ve never been brave enough to try



  42. Scott Stubberud on May 1, 2022 at 7:29 pm

    The top of your car door window also works say if out hunting or fishing camping etc. Probably a little finer than bottom of coffee mug. Very similar tho. Eezy peezy



  43. CB Boy on May 1, 2022 at 7:31 pm

    Practical & economical, thank you.



  44. ensign j on May 1, 2022 at 7:32 pm

    Please lower the music. Love your vids.



  45. Ernest Horning on May 1, 2022 at 7:32 pm

    I’ve been using the nail in a drill for several years. I’ve found that most drill chucks have an open cavity in the back which negates the need to cut the head off.



  46. Tregg Liebler on May 1, 2022 at 7:33 pm

    Brilliant! Thankyou.



  47. The Grey Outdoors on May 1, 2022 at 7:33 pm

    Most of these hacks are old…but needed reviving.



  48. qwerty asdfg on May 1, 2022 at 7:37 pm

    this dude looks like a 10 year sober Joey Diaz



  49. Mehran Freeman on May 1, 2022 at 7:38 pm

    When Izzy was healthy 😀
