Workshop Tips: Jack up projects for finishing
My favorite way to raise wood projects for finishing or to let a finish dry is a set of jacks (yes, the childhood toy). Throw down a handful on any work surface, and they create a level resting area with great airflow. better yet, if you throw down more than a few, they won’t mar the bottom of your project. I found sets of eight for less than $1 each at a party-supply store.
