Picking up steel wool dust with a magnet.

Rob from Clinton, Ontario has a great suggestion for getting those fine steel wool fibers out of the wood before finishing.

Wrap a strong magnet in a clean cloth and simply wipe over the area.

Removing the cloth from the magnet allows you to shake the little pieces of steel wool into the garbage can and go at the wood again, until there is no scrap left to cause you finishing problems.
