A good glue can stave of entropy and fill you with a warm glow.

I want to take Casio watches (or the equivalent) and/or old cell phones and glue stuff to them--beads, bits of circuit board, Lego minifig heads, etc. What would be the best glue for this purpose? [more inside]

box building for cheap dummies

I sort of have a box addiction. I collect cardboard boxes for shipping boardgames, or that's what I tell myself, but sometimes I just collect them. I am not a meth user, but probably have a hoarding gene. So I want to make some simple wooden boxes using simple tools to rebox a few favorite games. I have a jig saw, hand saw, drill, circular saw and a few other cheap tools, like a plastic mitre box. The boxes don't have to be examples of fine wordworking, just functional and not too crude. I'm looking for resources on how to do this without dropping hundreds of dollars on antique planes or tools.
