Nice portable light build


Nice light build, me…I will just buy one, its about $25 in parts to build this, you can get a decent one for $20, may not be as bright thought.

Nicest looking mini CNC yet

This has to be the nices looking one of these mini CNC’s made from CDROM motors I have seen yet. Actually the build doesn’t re-use steppers from CDROMs, but it getting them direct from the net with the case. Kindof cheaping.

Nice Kreg Jig Station

Nice build. If you can afford the bigger Kreg Jig, this is a nice add on for it.

Make your own anti backlash nuts

Nice idea, but…alot of work. Me…I am torn on this one on buying one vs making my own.

Simple small cross cut sled

I like this build. I have seen some where they are just an extension to the miter, which hasn’t worked out as well as I would like. And my “big” sled is hard to move around. So this could be a nice alternative build.

Candy Cane Build

Nice build. The author used plywood backing and difference sized PVC pipe parts for the LED cones. Not so sure I would go as far as using an addressable LED’s thought for the build (expensive)

Adding EL Wire to a Veil

Nice build for a bridal veil using EL wire.  The wire is pretty nice to use and bright, but…the power supply for them typically have a humm to it.

Make your own drinking straw

OK I could get worked up how everyone is freaking out over straws when I see a whole lot of other larger items going in the trash.  But it is a starting point.  Anyways, nice write up on how to make your own straws out of a stainless steel tube.

Nice air filter build

Only thing is it uses an car air filter instead of a hepa based one.
