Deck Lessons #4 - Magic gloves

When you've got a few thousand screws to drive, speed helps.  I definitely recommend wearing work gloves of some kind, because splinters suck, and pressure treated wood probably isn't something you want to spend many, many hours handling with bare hands. I mean, it's probably fine, but just wear work gloves, okay?

But picking up screws with work gloves on takes a lot of practice.  So I took a shortcut.  I glued a small magnet to the back middle finger of each glove.  I chose the middle finger so that I could grab it with thumb and forefinger of the same hand to get it into position for driving.

*Round of applause* That's a really good idea. Not Nobel Prize caliber, but pretty good.
