You can cut the cost of wood glue for workshop projects significantly by buying your glue in 1-qt. or larger containers. To make it convenient to use, transfer the glue as you need it from the large bottle to your own squeeze bottles or a glue pot.
To take measurements inside an area like a cabinet drawer, use your measuring tape from inside edge to inside edge. Take the reading and then add on the length of the tape housing which is often stamped on the case. Another way is to use your tape along with a combination square. Position the square upside down in one corner and pull the case past the square’s blade. Select a number on the blade, and add the length of the tape.
