Well, sort of. It involves loading and unloading plywood and stock
from a trailer.
Last night I completed the last step of the shop move: moving all the
unused plywood, maple, hickory, and other stuff. It was maybe half a
dozen sheets of plywood and about 200bdft of stock. When I got to the
old house, I discovered that I didn't have my gloves. This was
annoying because it was cold. I'm confident that I could have moved
all of it without gloves and not gotten any splinters. But I would
have had to go a lot slower.
After complaining to my wife about the situation, she suggested rubber
gloves. You know the type, the thick yellow rubber ones swmbo uses to
do the dishes. They're thicker than latex surgical gloves, but thin
enough to feel what's happening. I stretched them over my hands and
proceded to move wood. I was surprised by how good they were. They
kept my hands warm (probably too hot in the summer), prevented
splinters, and provided an extra rubbery non-slip grip.
I plan to fix the car with them this weekend.
