Whenever possible, always set up a work table.

I like to keep some channel siding kicking around, they make great saw guides

A great work table for shop use... Fold up Ping Pong table... been using one for years. Folds up - has wheels for moving - can clamp to and creates a huge work table.
Also, I now wear Mechanic's gloves when sawing. Started using them a few years ago when working on a COLD day - found out that they are a great way to keep splinters out of your fingers and you are not as apprehensive when ripping lumber so you have much better control.

Rehashin old stuff folks...

I use coffee cans for alllll my screws and nails, even built a big angled shelf that holds all 40 so you look right into the top to see what you need.
And if I need stuff for a job, I grab the whole can and lid, fits right in the toolbox.

Anybody else?

I use peg board for repeated hole drilling for shelves, also when my t-square wears out at work I grind the rivets off and remove the top for a great straight edge
