Build a night light on the fly

OK everything I can see getting at a store to make this BUT and LED.  Nice build for a night light overall thought.  But if I am going to the store…I could just get a cheap flashlight and stick that in the jar instead.

Nice build for stackable painting pyramids

I have seen the screw in a board trick before. But putting a second hole so you can stack them all together is nice way to store them.  My 2 cents, maybe 2 more holes so you could “hang” the stack?

Interesting sander tool

I like the tool, but…how did he bend it (maybe used the steamer build?)?

Is it a foot stool or a toolbox

Interesting build to make it “both”.  Not so sure I would put the handhold on the bottom, I would be afraid of stuff falling out in toolbox mode.

Not so sure I would hold the things like he does to do the welds.

Nice outfeed for a Dewalt tablesaw

I am pretty sure you can apply this to other saws as well.  I was looking at outfeeds or rollers to use with a tablesaw, and…well…it can get pricey (some cases more than the saw).  Note if you are looking for the plans, they are moved (in the comments now).

This could put alot of dentists out

Well the ones that straighten teeth.  Or at least discount the cost.  I don’t know how well this would work with kids.  But maybe adults it would.

Nice build for a front bike rack

Looks more sturdy than what I could buy for $50 and up.  Only thing I was a bit worried about is the bending of the pipes.  I wonder if using one of those pipe benders from harbor freight would have worked here.

use a tablesaw to make a wood screw like thing from dowel rod

Interesting build.  But….I think I would extend the jig somehow to have it pushed up with a tool of some sort.
