Take note

Many DIY projects require us to make a note of measurements, and if you are anything like me, these will end up being written on pieces of paper, timber off-cuts or assorted cardboard boxes. It all gets a bit confusing, and you risk a minor disaster should the measurements be mislaid. Here’s my solution: keep a small roll of masking tape handy, write the measurements on it, then tear off that strip of tape and stick it on the relevant workpiece. Problem solved.
