comment What factors are important when selecting a rotary tool?
Two things might help here - "rotary tool" is a very vague classification - Dremel fits, Foredom fits if you want to buy a better but much more expensive (once - over time, might be cheaper) version of that type, Rotozip mentioned by @WayfaringStranger also fits, they are very different types of tool. Then there is "what you actually want to do" - either type of rotary tool (not to mention other rotary tools like drills, saws, lathes, routers, milling machines) may or may not be the best choice for a particular type of job. A coping saw is a dandy hand-powered tool that cuts many things.

comment Is there anything I can use to remove gorilla glue from hardwood?
Try a chisel. If no luck, it's on to sand and refinish. But it might peel off if you get a chisel under it and there was enough dust/dirt/wax on the steps to keep it from making a good bond.

comment 1“ x 2” Furring Strips for Drywall Ceiling
Also, use drywall adhesive. But you're definitely going to want additional wood where you have joints. I'm guessing Shirlock meant "chalk" lines rather than caulk lines above - What I have done with 1x3 (slow, but accurate) is to mark the face of the last sheet, then hoist the next sheet into place, and mark pencil lines on the face of the sheet to be sure I hit the wood. Chalk lines could do the same, I find them slightly more awkward to work with around the drywall jack I use, as a one-man crew.
