If you have a home based workshop, stop going to the kitchen to steal plastic wrap or foil to cover your paintbrush between coats. Often overlooked, having rolls of plastic wrap, foil, and wax paper in the shop avoids tracking sawdust into the main part of the house. Why wax paper? To put under stuff you are gluing. Note how we’ve clearly labeled each, as the boxes all tend to look the same, and the actual product is typically labeled in fine print.
Oh yea, we’ve stopped using newspapers on the benches to avoid paint spatter. Corrugated cardboard lays flatter and can be used many times.
