Nice looking table from 2x4s

If I happen across a bunch of 2×4’s, this could be a nice build.  Even if they are old ones you could paint them and then cut and install. https://www.instructables.com/id/Suduko-Coffee-Table/

Nice hook

Cool Mortise and Tenon Jig for your dremel (shaft based)

Pretty could build.  Sounds like it does have a bit of flex thought.  But the author mentions the professional version is a grand.  So this doesn’t look to bad after all https://www.instructables.com/id/Flex-Shaft-Mortise-and-Tenon-Jig/
