Another nice drill press tool holder

Another nice build. Also built from scrap. It is roughly 3/4 inch plywood being used (author had a 1/4 and 1/2 inch that he combined).

Another nice shield build

This one I could do. I have to say I was impressed with the build (the author “bends” the plywood to a curve). One thing the author could have done a little differently is to put grooves into the back of the shield to help with bending it, since it will all be filled in with woodglue in the end.

Another nice facemask build

Simple and the author includes a pattern you can print out. Made one of these myself, but added a few extra layers.

3D print your own dust collector blast gates

Nice build. If you have a printer that can handle the size. The “gate” thought is not printed but a piece of plexi glass. Not sure if I would build on of these myself. If my printer could handle it.

Nice rocket launcher build

Nice build for a rocket launcher. I was impressed with the 1 way valve build for this too.

Awesome Shield build

But I don’t know if I would have the patience to make this. The author traces all the patterns on the shield first, then using a dremel in router mode, cuts out the outline, then chisels out chunks, then burns in around the patterns, then sands and stains…yeah…me, I think I would upgrade my CNC first.

Simple light up LED sweater

Pretty simple light up LED sweater, the author got a kit, thought you could DYI that bit too, that is an LED with controller and battery pack, stitched it all in, and bang, done. The kit she uses is a nice setup. but can set you back close to $50 after shipping and taxes.

Nice homemade multi tape dispenser

I like this build, and the addition of a french cleat to hang it up on is nice too. Me…not so sure I would go thru all this effort, maybe something a bit more simpler for me.

Another interesting circle maker

This one is a bit on the heavy duty side of things.

Jig for making box joints with a router.

Nice jig to make the box joints with a router instead of a tablesaw.
