Doug Thalacker’s ashtray glue holder made me think of another inexpensive option. When I need to use a small amount of glue, I pour it into a plastic cough syrup cup. After I’m done, I just leave any leftover glue in the cup to dry, and it’s easy to pry out later with a dental pick, a little screwdriver or even a long nail. The glue won’t stick to the plastic, making the cup easy to re-use for other projects.
