Getting wood from old doors

Old 1960’s hollow doors, I never thought about it, but that does give you some nice 1/8 plywood that you could use for other projects.

Interesting drill press drum sander build

I like this build since it allows for planing of a board. Only thing is the back board for the “planer” looks like it could be a bit loose. https://www.homemadetools.net/forum/how-make-spinning-drum-sander-drill-press-83967

Nice circular saw guide

I have used some guides in the base. Made my own “track” guide. But this build is pretty impressive one. I like the handle on it. https://www.homemadetools.net/forum/easy-precision-repeated-cut-using-circular-saw-rip-cut-jig-83940

Electric planer jig

I got a kick out of this jig, basically its taking your hand held electric planer and making it into a shaper of sorts, so you can plain straight, flat edges. Rather clever build.

A better taping jig for the table saw

This author built a jig similar to the one from yesterday, but found it was a bit unsafe, so built the slider based one. https://www.instructables.com/A-Much-Safer-Table-Saw-Taper-Jig/

Simple tapering jig for table saw

I have seen some fancy sleds for a tapering jig for table saws, this one is pretty simple build compared to the sleds. https://www.homemadetools.net/forum/precision-tapering-jig-table-saw-how-make-81167?homelistings#post165268

Nice simple circle maker jig

For a tablesaw. Not so sure I would use t-track instead of some sort of channel instead (t-track can get expensive). But overall nice build. https://www.homemadetools.net/forum/adjustable-table-saw-circle-jig-81165?homelistings#post165266

Fancy tablesaw cross cut with dust collection

Pretty fancy cross cut sled. I like to look at it, but I don’t think I will ever get around to making something this fancy. https://www.instructables.com/TABLE-SAW-CROSS-CUT-SLED-W-STOP-BLOCK-DUST-COLLECT/

Make your own Giant Hands

I am impressed with this build. Not only do the hands look good, but the work. Could be a good add for a costume for Sweet Home. https://www.instructables.com/Building-Giant-Articulated-Hands-carved-From-Wood-/
