Another drilling tip:

If you are drilling pilot holes, wrap a piece of tape around the bit where you want to stop your hole. For example, if you need a 1/2" deep pilot hole, wrap the tape around the bit exposing 1/2" at the tip. Then when you drill, watch as you approach the tape and stop your hole when you reach it.

I had to look this one up, apparently there is a bit of truth to it.

"In less than an hour, Chris was back in my office with the following technical report: "It works, sort of." He held in his hand three crudely cut cathedral glass circles, still wet. We examined the evidence. Most apparent, the circles hadn't been "cut," they had been grozed. Identical results, we agreed, could have been achieved with a cheap pair of grozers and no water. Superior results could have been achieved accidently by a three-year-old with a rusty Red Devil."
