DIY Tip of the Day: Screw-lube on a String. Drill a hole through a bar of soap and hang it above your workbench. Run long screws across the soap before you drive them. They’ll smoothly penetrate the wood without stripping the screw head. - Brian Bubenzer

GENIUS: Pull-out cutting board and trash can.
Cutting Boards, Compost Bins, Good Ideas, Cut Boards, Kitchens Ideas, Chops Boards, House, Great Ideas, Smart Ideas
A smart idea that need not have an official trash bin drawer (though that is handy if you are redoing your cabinets anyway.) Set up a sturdy drawer with a carefully sized cutting board (make sure it is secured to avoid accidents.) Place your compost bin or trash basket underneath the cutout--even a short drawer below would work for a compost bowl or bucket and then both can be easily closed.
Pull-out cutting board and rubbish bin. An ingenious kitchen idea!
Cutting board with hole over compost bin = great idea.
hidden waste / cutting board - I like this idea but I'm not sure I like my chopping board bring stored above my rubbish bin
Pull-out cutting board and trash can. - Great idea for next house

8 clever uses for these
Ideas, Shoes Boxes, Beef Jerky, Travel Bags, Silica Gel, Wet Cell Phones, Popular Mechanical, Gel Packets, Silica Packets
When most people get a packet of silica gel in a shoe box or beef jerky packet, their instinct is to toss it. But savvy DIYers have long known that the omnipresent desiccants are good for a lot more than keeping jerky dry. Here are a few uses, including some great tips sent in by readers. -Use in underwater camera casings Underwater camera casings are great fun, but even if stray moisture and condensation don't ruin your camera, they can fog or streak across your lens. Fight this by stashing a packet or two of silica gel in the underwater casing, along with the camera. -Toss them in your toolbox to keep your tools free of oxidation "I am a line mechanic for Delta Airlines. We do all our work here outside since we don't have a hangar. So when an aircraft arrives with maintenance issues I have to wheel my tools outside, leaving them vulnerable to weather, and sometimes my toolbox gets filled with snow or rain. I have found that if I put two desiccant packs per drawer in my toolbox, it is just enough to dry them out and keep my tools from oxidation." Submitted by Aaron from Indianapolis -Dry out a wet cell phone This one's an old favorite. If your phone becomes the unfortunate victim of a spill or swim, you can still rescue it—you just need to act fast. Remove the battery and any memory cards from the phone, then toss it in a bowl filled with silica gel packets (dry rice will work, too, in a pinch). Leave it there at least overnight before powering it on again. -Keep engines dry while in storage "I fly ultralight aircraft and use silica gel in my engines (snowmobile engines converted for aircraft use). I put the gel in old plastic 35-mm film canisters. I drill holes in the canisters smaller than the beads so they don't come out, and I put one inside each carburetor intake to help keep moisture out of the engine while it is in storage during the winter. This helps keep the bearings from pitting and the internal parts of the engine from rusting. Snowmobilers could benefit from this during the summer while their sleds are not being used. " Submitted by Anonymous -Extend the life of razor blades "It is understood that oxidation on razor blades causes premature dulling. I keep a Tupperware half full of silica gel in my medicine cabinet. After each shave, I blot any residual water off the blade and store the razor in the Tupperware with the silica gel." Submitted by Russell from Madison, WI -Fight camera condensation If you're taking your camera out into the cold, it can face serious condensation when you bring it back into a warm room. Remove the battery and memory card, and place the camera in a bowl of silica gel to suck up the moisture. -Dry out wet fishing flies "Being an avid fly fisherman, I use silica to dry out my flies when fishing on a favorite stream. I crush or ground the silica into powder form, then place it in a film canister. When my fly becomes waterlogged, I place it into the canister, put the cap on, shake it for a bit, and voilà—my fly is dry again." Submitted by Tim from Flower Mound, TX -Create a dry travel bag This one's for the road warriors. Toss a few packets of silica into a Ziplock bag to make an instant travel gadget bag, with enough water-fighting ability to withstand accidental luggage spills.

natural headache remedy: feet hands in warm water frozen peas on the neck
Chiropractic is GREAT for headaches, but I saw this and thought it was interesting. I'm not sure if it works (although I do know that using ice helps), but I thought I would share it anyway. From: Health Digest "Have a headache/migraine? Submerge your feet and hands in hot/warm water and put a bag of frozen peas at the base of your skull. The heat on your extremities pulls the blood from your head relieving some/all of your headache.
Instant headache relief. Soak hands & feet in hot or very warm water, place a bag of frozen peas (or ice) on the back of your head. Blood will flow to warm extremities and away from your head, relieving your headache.
