The first thing I used to do with a new magazine was to throw away those loose reply cards inside, but then it occurred to me that I was wasting a good shop resource. These cards are handy for holding puddles of glue. I put them under freshly stained items or use them to mask off areas during finishing. They also make great shims. Keep the cards in an envelope in the shop, because their myriad uses are only limited by your imagination. And, they’re free!
