A hot-glue gun comes in handy when a quick-drying, temporary bond is needed, such as when template routing. But it tends to be messy and unsteady when set down. This scrapwood stand holds the gun firmly between uses and catches any glue drippings. Coat the drip catch with a thin layer of petroleum jelly, and dried glue pops out easily.—Rafael Rubio, Albuquerque, N.M.
