Paper Rags At The ReadyComments (0)
This article is from Issue 63 of Woodcraft Magazine.
For cleanup around the shop, I use paper rags like those sold in boxes at home supply stores. They’re convenient to use, but tearing off a perforated section can be a two-handed hassle, with one hand (often already fouled with finish) to hold the box, and the other to rip away the necessary rags. The easy fix is to store the box upside down in a cabinet whose bottom has been drilled to create a dispensary hole for the rags. A quick, one-handed sideways pull is all it takes to free up whatever length you want. If you don’t have a suitable cabinet, you can create a simple shelf for the job, mounting it to a wall or perhaps between overhead joists.
