Another nice knob jig

Another nice knob jig build. I had one similar to this one, but ran into issues with harder wood and cutting out the ends of the knob, the piece would slip a bit while cutting. https://www.homemadetools.net/forum/3-1-star-knob-jig-77604?homelistings#post151676

Make a cheap fence clamp

Why didn’t I think of this? The author uses a big u-bolt clamp to make 2 L bolts to use in a sacrificial fence. https://www.homemadetools.net/forum/super-cheap-fence-clamp-76830?homelistings#post148412

Nice miter sled for a table saw

Nice build to cut 45 degree angles on the table saw. Great to do if you are working with boards that are bigger than you compound miter can handle. https://www.instructables.com/id/MITER-SLED-FOR-SMALL-TABLE-SAW/
