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/

Make LED buttons

The author basically takes an LED from a strip, puts it into a 3D printed button holder, and wires it in. Nice build and if you have leftovers from a strip of LEDs too. https://www.instructables.com/id/Fabric-LEDs/

Cool 3D print cat (maybe dog) toy

Nice build, the parts you can 3D print out, and with 2 servos, a laser pointer, and an ESP, you can build one yourself. I could see expanding this build myself. https://www.instructables.com/id/LaserCat/
