On-the-spot solution for stubborn splinters
If youâ€™re one of those woodworkers (and I know you are) who gets hard-to-remove, little splinters, I have a nifty trick for you. Simply put a drop of wood glue onto the spot, and cover it with a bandage until the next morning. When the glue dries, it will grab the splinter and just peel it out when you remove the bandage.
