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 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

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 … Continue reading

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 … Continue reading

Improved Spline Jig

I think I showed the original one a few months back. Well the author went back on the build and made a better version of it. It looks nice. https://www.homemadetools.net/forum/%93no-clamps%94-spline-jig-w-folding-knobs-78449?homelistings#post154771
