Keeping glue at the ready

Glue bottles work great when they are full. But once the glue level drops below half, I find waiting for the viscous stuff to make its way to the tip frustrating. To remedy this, I made wooden bases for my glue bottles that allow me to store them nozzle down, keeping the glue immediately accessible. To make a base, find scrap thick enough to accommodate the length of the bottle’s entire screw cap. Then drill two holes; a shallow one large enough to fit the screw cap and a narrower, deeper one for the nozzle. For two-part glues such as epoxy, make the base large enough to hold both bottles.
