The Family Handyman

Next time youre assembling a project requiring a small army of screws, stick the whole batch point down in an upside-down wax toilet ring ($4 at a home center). The wax is super soft, so its easy to press the screws in and pull them out, plus theyll be lubricated for easier driving. Build a little framed platform for the ring to ride in so it wont pick up dust when you plop it on a workbench. Many thanks to Dan Allmon for this very slick tip.
