Splinters in your Hand!?!

If you get a splinter, rub some garlic on it -- the splinter will almost jump out for you! In the old days, carpenters used to always carry garlic in their pouches for this reason :wink:

Found this on the net,thought I would share it with the "Splinter Fleet Builders"

I'll remember that tip next build.
Man i had some nasty splinters after cutting my panels.
My marine ply seemed to splinter terribly. Much worse the any WBP i've ever used for anything.
Is that normal or was i just 'lucky'? :?
