How to do it?

  1. Place sticky note on the wall, right under where you plan to drill a hole.
  2. Fold it lengthwise so that it creates a ledge.
  3. Fold the corners up to create a catching edge so the sawdust stays in place.
  4. Presto! You have a quick and easy dust catcher.
  5. After your done carefully fold it up and toss it in the compost. No mess, less stress!


Any sticky note can be used for this, but an Opal sticky note is best! How to get an Opal sticky note?
