Stretch film beats string for bunching materials

For a slip-free alternative to string or rope when tying together long pieces of stock or bunches of dowels, try stretch film. This thin plastic material can be found in the tape section of most hardware or home centers. Stretch film adheres to itself, but unlike tape, it can be reused many times. And stretch film contains no adhesives that might gum up your wood.

Use a hand roller as well (available at the same counter). This makes it a much quicker and simpler operation. Tim in Montreal.
