Woodworking tips

Woodworking tips are interesting.
I like to browse the woodworking sections at the book stores and I'm always reading about some little thing. When I go back to the shop and try out the tip I find I learn much more about everything else then what I originally intended to try.
I guess that's the value of reading and a creative profession. Every application of carpentry stimulates a mechanical or design urge.
I'd like to share some tips with you. I'll update and organize them as best as I can and as often as I can. I'll include shop tips as well as carpentry and building tips.
