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-/

Simple holder for small cuts on a miter saw.

Basically its a paint stick with a nail on one end. Actually I think I will make this with a paint stick. And use a nut/bolt on the other end (sharpen the end of the bolt). https://www.popularwoodworking.com/tricks/add-a-pinch-of-safety/

Nice portable chair build

Too bad the author did not have a printable template for this. At first look I thought he CNC’ed it out. Turns out it was all done by hand. https://www.instructables.com/How-to-Make-a-Secret-Foldable-Chair-at-Home/

Wow this is one heck of a table saw sled

This sled has multiple options to it (the video only shows one new one). I like this guys build. Puts my homemade sled to shame. https://www.homemadetools.net/forum/new-way-use-table-saw-sled-makes-mitered-boxes-inline-splines-snap-81379?homelistings#post166037

Nice corner clamp build

Nice build for picture frames or other items like it. Me, I bought some cheap clamps at Harbor Freight that do the job for me. But I would love to have a set as nice looking as these. https://www.homemadetools.net/forum/quick-corner-clamp-video-80892?homelistings#post164063

Nice rug build, maybe good for cosplay armor

Nice looking build, now this would not work for real armor as you need some overlay on each piece, but it looks cool and could make a good costume based armor. https://www.instructables.com/id/Wooden-Bear-Skin-Rug-Moves-Like-Real-Cloth/

Nice lamp build from plywood

Nice build, the author uses a combo of handtools and CNC to make this. https://www.instructables.com/id/Mid-Century-Flexible-Plywood-Lamp/

Nice Ballista build

Just not so sure I would trust PVC pipe for the arms on it. But it seems to work and is a nice concept build. https://www.instructables.com/id/Alexander-the-Greats-Macedonian-Ballista/

Interesting birdhouse build

Could be a nice way to make one and eliminate some of the wood needed for the floor. Actually I think I would paint the can myself, and stain or paint the wood. But its a nice build overall. https://www.instructables.com/id/Coffee-Can-Birdhouse/

nice multi angle table saw jig

This can be used not just for angled cuts, but to “straighten” out boards that have a curve to them. Relatively simple build too. https://www.homemadetools.net/forum/4-1-multi-adjustable-table-saw-jig-78635?homelistings#post155545
