Organizing Drill Bits

Like most people, we spend lots of time (way too much time) surfing the web, entranced by various videos. In Video Roundup, we offer some videos from all over the world that we found especially intriguing.

Drills and drill bits! So helpful in woodworking, so pesky to organize. This week our selections focus on making efficient storage for drills and drill bits.

Saws aren't just for woodworking, as these two videos prove. In the first, Natalia Paruz, aka "Saw Lady," well known to New Yorkers for her subway station performances, plays a Chopin nocturne with pianist Eyal Bat, and in the second, Chili Klaus plays both tenor and soprano saw.
